Quick Lime Powder

It is the powdered form of calcium oxide

Quick Lime Lumps

Quick Lime Lumps manufactured from both Modern Kiln and Traditional Kiln

It is produced when limestone is heated above 900 °C, a temperature at which limestone decomposes to carbon dioxide and quicklime (CaO). Quicklime is also known as Calcium oxide (CaO)/ Burnt lime. It is found in both lumps and powder form. Quick Lime is used as a flux in steel plants, metallurgical plants and refractories thus making it integral to metal manufacturing. Used as coagulant, Quick Lime aids in manufacturing of sheet with grass and waste paper.

Applications:

Lime is extensively used to treat municipal waste waters and industrial liquid wastes. In wastewater treatment plants (both urban or industrial) Hydrated Lime and Quick Lime are widely used for correcting the pH balance of acidic water, 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 treating urban biosolids before agricultural re-use or incineration.

In addition, lime is used to treat soils polluted with hydrocarbons.

Lime has long been used in the construction industry to make mortar and plaster, serving as a binder in these substances. During the hardening process, the lime combines with carbon dioxide from the air to form rocklike calcium carbonate, while water is released by evaporation. Hydraulic lime is used to make a special kind of mortar that hardens under water. Besides this, Quick Lime Powder is also used immensely for manufacturing AAC Blocks (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete).

A cleaning agent in the leather manufacture process, lime is used to remove raw skin and thus obtain clean leather.
