Treatment of Drinking Water for Public Utilities

Lutz-Jesco chemical feed systems are typically used for the treatment of drinking water at stationary locations (in water works) and at mobile locations (e.g. aboard ships).  Applications include:

  • Production and feeding polyelectrolyte as a flocculant and flocculation aid
  • Feeding chlorine gas or chlorine bleach as a disinfectant
  • Feeding polyphosphate to combat lime scaling
  • Feeding lime water or milk of lime to maintain a lime-carbonic acid equilibrium
  • Feeding caustic soda to regulate pH value
  • Feeding orthophosphate for hardness stabilisation
  • Feeding potassium permanganate for removal of iron and manganese


These measures ensure clean drinking water all year round.

Developed as additional tools for feeding chlorine gas into water, the Lutz-Jesco products from the product ranges that deliver chlorine gas under vacuum and at positive pressure have for many years been used successfully worldwide for fresh water disinfection. Lutz-Jesco dosing pumps have also been used in water works for many years and on every continent for continuous admixture of liquid media. In combination with Lutz-Jesco measurement and control technology, they ensure consistent feeding and permanently reliable water quality.

Lutz-Jesco products satisfy the high criteria and demands set by standards applicable across the world for maintenance of hygiene parameters in drinking water; and they can be relied on as a partner for sustained dependable service.
