Hydrated Lime Powder

Hydrated lime, also known as calcium hydroxide, is a fine white powder used in various applications across several industries. Its versatility and chemical properties make it a valuable material in different contexts. Some common applications of hydrated lime powder include:

Water Treatment: Hydrated lime is used in water and wastewater treatment to adjust pH levels and remove impurities. It helps to soften water, precipitate heavy metals, and control odors.

Construction Industry: It is used as an ingredient in mortar and plaster to improve workability, cohesion, and durability. It is also used in soil stabilization, providing a stable base for construction projects.

Chemical Industry: Hydrated lime is utilized in the production of chemicals such as bleaching powder, bleaching solutions, and calcium-based chemicals. It is also used in the manufacture of precipitated calcium carbonate and various other chemicals.

Agriculture: In agriculture, hydrated lime is used to neutralize acidic soil and regulate soil pH levels. It also serves as a disinfectant and drying agent in livestock and poultry farms.

Waste and Effluent Treatment: It is used for treating acidic waste streams, neutralizing acidic industrial effluents, and stabilizing sludge. It aids in the removal of impurities and heavy metals from industrial wastewater.

Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD): Hydrated lime is utilized in FGD systems to remove sulfur dioxide from exhaust flue gases in power plants and industrial facilities. It reacts with sulfur dioxide to produce calcium sulfite and calcium sulfate.

Paper Industry: It is used in the production of paper and pulp to improve the strength, sizing, and other properties of the paper.

Food Industry: Hydrated lime is used in food processing for various purposes, including pickling, as a food additive, and in the production of certain types of food.

Leather Industry: It is used in the leather industry for liming and tanning processes, helping to soften and prepare hides and skins for further treatment.

Drinking Water Treatment: It is used in the water treatment process to disinfect and remove impurities from drinking water, ensuring it is safe for consumption.
