Drinking water is almost always purified with lime before it flows from our taps. The addition of FELS lime binds corrosive carbonic acid and, depending on its original hardness, makes the water harder or softer in order to prevent the formation of boiler scale and corrosion in the piping. Lime is also responsible for adjusting the pH value. Last but not least, lime is used to remove naturally occurring heavy metals from our drinking water.
Milk of lime from FELS lime products is also used for the purification of industrial water, such as process water for power plants or pit water from mines.
