Engineering ToolBox - Resources, Tools and Basic Information for Engineering and Design of Technical Applications! Lime deposited vs. temperature and water consumption.
Lime deposited in water supply systems - based on 170 mg/liter
dissolved calcium and magnesium (hard water) :
Lime deposits increase with temperature due to less calcium carbonate solubility at higher temperatures.
Example - Deposits from Consumption of Hard Water
The deposits from hard water with
170 mg dissolved calcium and magnesium per liter, temperature 60 and water consumption oC 2000 m - can from the diagram above be estimated to aprox. 3/year
