Calcium Oxide (CaO), commonly called as "Quicklime" or "Burnt Lime" is a highly reactive chemical with variety of uses in the mining and industrial water treatment sectors. Quicklime is most commonly used for its ability to stabilize pH, soften water, stabilize bio-solids, and precipitate nutrients.
Micronised Mineral Solutions Pty Ltd’s Fine Quicklime is a high quality calcium oxide product manufactured to a very fine grain size (typically less than 150μm), maximising the availability of CaO for chemical processes. Quicklime is mainly used by mining industry to treat runoff and process waters from coal mining, metal mining and non-metal mines. Quicklime used with properly designed slaking plants helps to neutralize acids from mining waters and precipitate metals and non-metals.
