adding a milk of lime to a laboratory container

Ready-to-use milk of lime  

Akdolit® SL (milk of lime) is a non-dispersive suspension produced as a special preparation of hydrated lime (Ca(OH)2) in water. The preparation of a pure, homogeneous, non dispersible milk of lime on the site, where it is to be used, is a difficult process that requires specific equipment and know-how. This is why Akdolit® offers a range of ready-to-use milk of lime to its customers.  
In water treatment, milk of lime is used to establish calco-carbonic equilibrium and correct hardness (softening or hardening). Milk of lime can also reduce the concentration of heavy metal compounds in water by raising the pH.
