Hydrated Lime Slurry has been used in various applications for many years. Making lime slurry from dry hydrated lime has been the norm for many industrial applications because it can be blended with water with basic mixing equipment. However, it has its drawbacks such as price, large silos for storage and the resultant bridging and other handling problems.
In the past hydrated lime slurry made from quicklime had its drawbacks also. Normally, only low concentrations of lime slurry could be used because of the high viscosity of the slurry made from quicklime. Generally, only construction uses could accept the paste-like consistency of quicklime slurry in concentrations above 30%. Although most industrial uses required maximum concentrations of slurry made from quicklime to be no more than 25%, they could not take full advantage of the small particle size of quicklime slurry because of the relatively high water to quicklime ratio which lowers slaking temperatures resulting in larger particle sizes and lower reactivity.
The advent of the Lime-Save process now allows practically all lime consumers to take advantage of the positive advantages of quicklime slurry while minimizing or eliminating the negative aspects of both slurry made from either quicklime or dry hydrate while improving the handling aspects and minimizing the dreaded scaling qualities of lime.
Applying the Lime-Save process to a variety of industries is shown in the following pages. If additional information is needed, please feel free to contact us.
