Industrial Raw Quicklime Mineral also known as calcium oxide CaO is a term commonly applied to several related materials. Pure lime is calcium oxide CaO formed by “burning” a form of calcium carbonate such as limestone or marble CaCO3. Calcium oxide is a key ingredient for the process of making cement. As a cheap and widely available alkali. About 50% of the total quicklime production is converted to calcium hydroxide before use. Both quick- and hydrated lime are used in the treatment of drinking water. Quicklime is used as Industrial Raw Materials with other industrial raw material products such as Silica Flour, Limestone, Aggregate, Talc, Volcanic Rock, Abrasives and Calcium Carbonate.
The quicklime products are often ground into a fine power referred to as PULVERIZED QUICKLIME that is ideal for mixing with additives or other materials to result in specialized blended composites. Due to the chemical nature of some additives, the quicklime can become “Fluidized,” that is, having properties of being highly fluid. The fluidized quicklime is ideal for use with special material handling systems for optimum flowability and to avoid clogging. Quicklime can also be hydrated with water, in a process commonly referred to as slaking, resulting in HYDRATED QUICKLIME (or calcium hydroxide), a dry free flowing powder product that is practical and efficient for many uses.
