Calcium oxide and the specific products that derive from it are obtained through a process of calcination of calcium carbonate mineral at a high temperature.
CaCO3 + Heat → CaO + CO2
Calcium oxide is an alkaline product, permitting regular industrial multitudes. Its properties principally depend on its chemical composition and the thermal treatment, which has been subjected to minerals, determined by its reactivity degree.
Calcinor is committed to making sure that the best calcination systems, which are more energy efficient, are available on the market. Through grinding processes and additional classifications, Calcinor is capable of offering a more appropriate granulometric status for every application. In this way, the shipment format is then optimised for every customer (sacks, large bags, loose).
Through the R+D department, special calcium oxide based products have been developed:
