Lime is commonly used across many industries as an economic source of calcium and alkalinity in both water- and oil- based fluids. Lime, also referred to as hydrated Lime and slaked Lime, is a multi-functional product used to increase pH, provide excess lime as an alkalinity buffer, flocculate bentonite muds, remove soluble carbonate ions, control corrosion, and activate fatty-acid oil-base fluid additives. Although used widely in the Oil&Gas Industry, Lime is a widely available commercial chemical used in a variety of industries such as Industrial and Agricultural. Lime is a strong base and will form high pH (alkaline) solutions when added.
