MMS Hydrated Lime

Micronised Minerals Hydrated Lime (slaked lime), is a high quality calcium hydroxide product manufactured to a fine grain size which maximises the availability of [Ca(OH)2] for chemical processes.

Calcium Hydroxide [Ca(OH)2], also known as Hydrated Lime, is a fine, odourless white powder commercially produced by reacting Quicklime with sufficient water. It is used in many applications, including food preparation, water treatment, soil stabilisation and can be added to water to produce Milk of Lime.

Applications / Uses

Hydrated Lime for Government sector

Hydrated Lime is vital to municipalities, it is used for potable water softening pH, removal of heavy metals and impurities from drinking water.

Hydrated Lime for Cattle Industry

Hydrated Lime is used as a binder in cattle-feed products and as a Calcium supplement for animal feed products. Hydrated lime is a highly cost effective method for treating sewage sludge and animal waste from concentrated animal feeding operations.

Hydrated Lime for Civil sector

Hydrated Lime is used as soil stabiliser due to its properties to set-up an alkaline environment in presence of water. It reacts with pozzolans (materials containing reactive silica and alumina) present in the pavement material or subgrade and the hydrates complexes formed with chemical reaction dramatically reduce soil plasticity; increases its workability and improves its compaction characterisitcs.
