Quick-lime, hydrated lime or dolomites are the most effective alkaline products for environmental applications.
Products supplied by Calcinor are used for environmental protection, and part of the gas, water and sludge treatment process. The objective of this treatment is to conserve natural resources and minimize the carbon footprint generated by industrial activities.
The main functions of quick-lime, hydrated lime and calcined dolomite in this sector are summarized below:
- Flocculants and coagulants eliminate the suspended matter.
- Disinfect and sanitise the water and sludge.
- Corrects water hardness.
- Regulates and neutralises its pH.
- Precipitating-dissolved contaminants (organic matter, heavy metals).
- Sludge thickener.
- Decontamination of affluent acids (gases).
A wide range of additives are used in water-treatment, including lime and its derivatives due to its alkalising functions and contribution of calcium ions.
Quicklime or calcium hydroxide cleans the sludge, destroying the microorganisms and bacteria present, in the same way it prevents their growth and reduces bad smells.
Different systems of gas treatment which increase the uptake effectiveness of acidic contaminants in industrial fumes, from calcium carbonate to quicklime salked lime.
