Hydrated lime is used in ore processing to react and separate wanted components such as copper, gold, lithium, and iron from the ore rocks. In addition, hydrated lime helps in controlling flotation by adjusting the pH of the slurry and in the process of separating contaminants.
Why use Carmeuse Brasil’s quicklime in mining?
- High calcium content;
- Low contaminant content;
- Maintains proper pH of ore slurry;
- Helps in pipeline transportation;
- Increased safety due to reduced heat of reaction (lime already extinguished).
