High-calcium quicklime is lime made from rich deposits of high-calcium limestone containing less than 5% magnesium carbonate. Calcium oxide (CaO), commonly known as lime or quicklime, is a widely used chemical compound. It is a white, alkaline, and crystalline solid.
Quicklime is produced by heating limestone as shown in the following equation:
Quicklime is created by heating limestone as shown in the following equation:
CaCO3 + HEAT = CaO + CO2
High-calcium quicklime provides superior chemical performance. It will deliver exceptional performance for acid-neutralization, SO2-absorption, sludge-stabilization or other industrial-alkali applications.
