Town Of Kittery, Maine Relies On Lime Feeders For pH Control For More Than 25 years

The Francis L. Hatch water filtration plant is in the coastal town in York county Maine and has an average capacity of 2.6 MGD. This is a surface water plant that utilizes hydrated or “slaked” lime (calcium hydroxide) to maintain the pH level around 7.0. For over 25 years, the district has used two of the UGSI Chemical Feed model 32‐055 Feeders to mix dry hydrated lime with water to create a lime slurry solution that can then be added to the finished water treatment.
