Puresol is a high solids lime slurry solution for use in drinking water. It is produced from Lime conforming to BS EN 12518 – Chemicals used for the treatment of water intended for human consumption and the LimeCure 50 additive conforming to BS EN 15039:2014 – Chemicals used for the treatment of water intended for human consumption. Puresol is approved under Reg 31 for use in drinking water in the UK
Puresol can be used in water softening and pH correction in drinking water to replace other lime slurries, magnesium oxide slurries and caustic.
When Puresol replaces caustic on an equivalent neutralisation basis the water company will save around 30% of the cost of the caustic.
For larger operations customers can convert a hydrate slurry systems to oxide and LimeCure 50 reducing costs and removing scaling problems. As this requires the additive and oxide to purchased separately this is covered by BS EN standards and customers can convert without DWI Reg 31 approval.
