Calcium oxide (CaO), Quicklime

By dividing the strongest natural carbonates, specific calcined products are manufactured for each productive process.

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:

  • The STABYCAL® bycal products range has been designed as a response to the specific application “Ground stabilisation”, achieving higher efficiency and performance...
  • In the case of CALFRIT® products, a limestone mineral of great purity is used and is specially prepared to offer a unique product, intended for the most demanding industrial sectors.
