Lime Applications

Agriculture

Agriculture

Lime has always been a low cost aid to maintaining fertility and nurturing the land. Lime displays a number of advantages including the preservation of the chemical condition of the soil. Others are the improved drainage, increased aeration, and a stabilized soil structure.

Quick lime is used to dry out damp soils and to improve the clay soils used in earthworks. Lime is also increasingly used to recycle excavated material (trench spoil) from sites in urban areas. A recent application of lime is the use of hydrated lime in the cement filler which consolidates...

Construction

Construction

Lime is a vital chemical used in building this infrastructure. From the addition of lime to control expansive clays in highway and airport construction to special hydrated dolomitic limes for increased masonry bond strength in buildings, lime has met this challenge and will continue to do...

Clean Air

Clean Air

The continuing demand for power has resulted in an increase in the burning of fossil fuels. Many such fuels contain sulphur and the resultant emissions in the atmosphere are the principle cause of acid rain. This can be devastating killing trees, rendering lakes sterile and generally despoiling the...

Waste Water and Sludge

Waste Water and Sludge

In wastewater treatment plants (both urban or industrial), lime is widely used for correcting the pH balance of acidic waters, for precipitating heavy metals and phosphates, and for its flocculating action. Lime is widely used for stabilizing industrial residual sludge or dredging sludge and for...

Waste Water

Waste Water

Lime plays a crucial part in the treatment of waste waters and does so in a way that is both economic and effective. The neutralization of acidic effluent, a waste product of a variety of industrial processes, can be safely achieved with a milk produced from hydrated lime or quick lime. The...

Water Treatment

Water Treatment

-Drinking Water and process In both drinking and process water preparation, lime is mainly used for pH adjustment and/or water purification. Milk of lime, among other products, is a cost-effective reagent which reduces the water's hardness by precipitating the bicarbonates dissolved in it, thus...

Non Ferrous

Non Ferrous

• Lime uses in the metal extraction process: - Lime is commonly used in the flotation of sulphide ores to facilitate concentration of the desired metal. This application is largely practiced in the Copper, Zinc, Nickel, Gold and Lead mining industries. - Lime is used to boost and control pH...

Steel Metallurgical Application

Steel Metallurgical Application

Very pure lime (>95% CaO) is critical as a purifying agent or flux in steel making; in lump form the lime quickly produces a highly alkaline slag with the silica in the mix, which ensures a rapid removal of sulphur, phosphorous and other impurities from the steel. Low sulphur steels can be...

Food Industry

Food Industry

Large quantities are consumed in the production of sugar where the principle use is in purification of the liquor extracted from beet or cane

Industrial Chemical Application

Industrial Chemical Application

Lime has numerous applications in the chemical industry thanks to its natural properties and competitive price. It's used in the production of chemicals such as calcium carbide, propylene oxide, sodium carbonate and glycerine, as well as being a reagent in the production of calcium-based...

Refractory Application

Refractory Application

Dead-burned dolomite is produced when dolomite is calcined at very high temperatures. It is used both as a refractory product in granular form to repair linings and for making the bricks used in the refractory linings of casting ladles and cement kilns. In the steel refining process, the use of...

Glass Industry

Glass Industry

We supply glass industry with extremely pure dolomite of very constant chemical composition and particle size.

Pulp and Paper Industry

Pulp and Paper Industry

Lime is traditionally used to reconstitute caustic soda from the sodium carbonate left over from the pulp-making process. Quick lime is usually mixed with water to form a slurry to which carbon dioxide is added. The resulting reaction produces a very fine precipitated calcium carbonate...
