1.7: Lime Softening - Workforce LibreTexts

Nov 22, 2020· An alternative method to the lime-soda ash softening process is the use of sodium hydroxide (NaOH), which is called caustic soda. The chemical reactions using caustic soda demonstrate that in removing carbon dioxide and carbonate hardness, sodium carbonate (soda ash) is formed, which will react with to remove non-carbonate hardness.

Lesson 18: Softening

Softening often removes iron and manganese, reduces tastes and odors, reduces total solids content, and removes radioactivity. The high pH associated with lime softening can aid in disinfection. Finally, when water is stabilized using recarbonation at the end of the lime softening process, corrosion in the distribution system is avoided.

Lesson 10: Softening

Lime softening produces large quantities of sludge. In fact, for every pound of lime used, about two pounds of sludge are formed. Lime sludge . The softening process usually requires two sedimentation basins, each with a detention time of 1.5 to 3 hours, to deal with the large quantities of sludge. One sedimentation basin handles the sludge ...

Warm Lime Softening. The warm lime softening process operates in the temperature range of 120-140°F (49-60°C). The solubilities of calcium, magnesium, and silica are reduced by increased temperature. Therefore, they are more effectively removed by warm lime softening than by cold lime softening. This process is used for the following purposes:

SEDIMENTATION - MRWA

coagulation or, in other treatment processes, such as lime softening (see Lime Softening chapter). Sedimentation is accomplished by decreasing the velocity of the water to a point which the particles will no longer remain in suspension. When the velocity no longer supports the particles, gravity will remove them from the water flow. PARTICLE SIZE

CHAPTER 10 PRECIPITATION

SOFTENING BY PRECIPITA TION Lime softening, the most widely used precipitation process, serves well to illus-trate the importance of four key variables in precipitation: (1) solubility, (2) par-ticle charge, (3) temperature, and (4) time. Lime softening is the reduction of hardness by the application of hydrated lime to water to precipitate CaCO3,
