Nordkalk SL (slaked lime) is suitable for a number of applications, but its primary applications are neutralising chemical processes and environmental care (e.g. flue-gas and water treatment). We supply slaked lime in bulk, big bags and small bags.
Nordkalk supplies several lime products that increase water pH levels and alkalinity effectively, for example to water treatment plants. Lime products differ from one another chemically and affect the process and end result in different ways. With quicklime (calcium oxide) and slaked lime (calcium hydroxide) water can easily be regulated to the desired level. Lime is also used for sludge treatment at wastewater treatment plants, in conditioning, stabilisation and sanitation.
Nordkalk SL is used for asphalt with high strength requirements and for other types of dry applications. The product is also used for manufacturing lime-based paint, suitable for stables and root cellars alike. The lime-based paint surface is hygienic as the paint contains neutralised calcium hydroxide. The lime-based paint wears off and has to be reapplied regularly to achieve the desired effect.
Nordkalk’s trademark for the steel and mining industry is Nordkalk SL, which is delivered in powder form. The product’s primary applications are neutralising chemical processes and environmental care (e.g. flue-gas and water treatment). The product is available in bulk or prepackaged in a bag. Bulk deliveries, usually made with a full bulk truck, are suitable for customers who need more product at a time. Slaked lime packed in a bag is often selected to make handling easier or because the customer needs less product.
Different slaked lime products have different qualities. Nordkalk has products suited to different applications within the steel and mining industry, for example applications that require a small particle size, which is critical in certain metallurgical applications.
Nordkalk SL is also suitable for the pulp and paper industry. We have located several of our plants strategically around Northern Europe in order to offer customers fast delivery and optimised logistics.
Nordkalk SL can be used for preventive animal welfare and health problems, reducing infection pressure in exposed environments such as manure channels, underneath straw bedding and under stall mats to reduce the spread of diseases and improve hygiene. Slaked lime significantly increases pH, so consider safety precautions and ensure that animals do not come into direct contact with the product.
