Hydrated high-calcium lime

Hydrated high-calcium lime

Application

Hydrated lime from FELS is mainly used in the building materials industry for plaster and mortar applications and in environmental protection for water and wastewater treatment as well as air pollution control. Like fine ground lime, it acts as mineral reagent and/or chemical base.

Production

Selected high-calcium lime hydrates are refined into hydrated lime (slaked lime) by means of a controlled reaction with water in dry slaking machines. Particle size, chemical purity, solubility in water and the degree of whiteness are key quality criteria.
