| The abundance and cost of hydrated lime to
solve a myriad of problems across the vast spectrum of industry has
existed for many, many years. Yet there are well known perennial problems that have
persisted. All of that changed in 2006 when Bromatco teamed up
a nationwide chemical solutions provider, when a new process was created to solve these
problems at a power plant near Phoenix, Arizona. The
process attacked the following problems:
The solutions to these
resulted from the process (patent pending) that created a low
viscosity, high solids content and non-scaling hydrated lime slurry
made from cost effective quicklime. The following benefits were

process can be applied to your
existing facilities or replacement of other chemicals with
hydrated lime slurry.
- No scaling or plugging in mixing tanks
and service lines
from lime scale.
- Easy removal, by the use of inexpensive
equipment, of the larger fraction of grit as a preventive for plugging.
- Reduction of 38% of the estimated usage
of quicklime due to
quicklime reactivity due to chemical advantages of quicklime as opposed
to dry hydrate.
- Reduced materials and transportation cost
quicklime in place of dry hydrate or commercial lime slurry made from
dry hydrated lime.
- Use of a 3" pump as opposed to an 8" pump
to pump the lime
- Use of a 5 hp motor, as opposed to a 35
hp motor, to
continuously mix prepared lime slurry due to low viscosity saving
almost $20,000 per year.
- Reduced storage capacity.
- Reduced environmental costs due to
smaller volume of spent
lime and sediment in storage ponds.
