Quicklime Stone Lime
Hydrated lime is one of the oldest binding chemicals in nature. Calcium oxide or quicklime is a kind of chemical compound with a wide range of uses. It is an abrasive and alkaline solid in white color. The name of the substance whose scientific name is calcium oxide in the folk language is called quicklime. Quicklime is obtained from limestone. When the limestone is heated above 900 degrees, the calcium oxide and carbon dioxide in it separate. In our country, this quicklime limestone is mostly burned in lime mines. In the large pit dug on the ground or on a slope, pieces of lime and wood, which are not extinguished, and bushes are laid loosely. After the cover is covered, the bushes are ignited and the limestone distorts over 900 degrees with the effect of heat and turns into quicklime. It is not possible to obtain lime continuously with this method. It is necessary to wash and re-install the hob every time. Rotary furnaces similar to lime kilns are used to obtain continuous and cheap lime. Hydrated lime generates heat with water. It combines to form calcium hydroxide, which is called slaked lime. After this reaction, quicklime is obtained. The main source of quicklime is calcium, carbohydrate. Dough lime is calcium hydroxide formed as a result of the reaction of quicklime with water. There are lime pit sources in our country. It can supply the limestone that our country needs.
When quicklime lime uses, calcium oxide water reacts, this interaction becomes very violent and heat is released. As a result of the reaction, when the water is removed, slaked lime occurs. Hydrated lime is used as a binder in construction materials and as an additive in dyeing. As quicklime is hardened in water and air, it is used as an important component in cement industry. Slaked lime is creamy and ready to use. Hydrated lime is used by adding water. It has a wide range from industry to construction as the application of quicklime. The quicklime is used directly or indirectly in various industrial products. The production of quicklime in our country is approximately 10 million tons. Some sectors that are used extensively are as follows;
Building materials, construction, mortar and plaster additive, autoclave, aerated concrete, roads,
Environmental rehabilitation, waste treatment, waste water treatment, balancing gulf lake ph, coating of waste sludge, stream reclamation, gas flue gas, desulphurization, solid environments,
Metallurgy and mining, ferrous and non-ferrous metals,
Chemical industry, Inorganic, organic,
Other industries, Food, glass, leather, refractory, paper, PVC, rubber etc.
