Quick Lime Or Calcium Oxide

Quick lime commonly known as Calcium Oxide or burnt lime is made by the thermal decomposition of materials which have Calcium Carbonate above 900°C. It is a white, crystalline solid, alkaline, caustic, at room temperature, also called quick lime or Calcium Oxide powder.

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.

The chemical nature of some additives causes the Quick Lime or Calcium Oxide to become “Fluidized,” that is, having properties of being highly fluid. This fluidized quicklime is ideal for use with special material handling systems for optimum flowability and to avoid clogging.

Uses of Calcium Oxide (Quicklime) are as following:

  • Calcium Oxide (Quicklime) mainly used in medicinal and insecticides industries.

  • Calcium Oxide (Quicklime) used in the manufacturing of cement, paper, and high-grade steel.

  • Calcium Oxide (Quicklime) used as a reagent in laboratories for dehydration.
