AS-8750 Keeps Lime Slaker Clean
AS-8750 had been used since December 2011 in a municipal water plant’s lime slurry operations. The AS-8750 had demonstrated the ability to keep the slaking equipment clean and trouble free. It had also improved water quality and reduced lime use for the plant over 25%. The plant manager was skeptical that the product would prevent fouling of the slurry transfer piping. After 10 weeks of operating, the piping was clean right to the surface. The grey PVC pipe was clearly visible. Historically, this piping would need to be laser blasted or replaced after 3 weeks. Their comments were that the product exceeded any performance expectations considerably.
