Hydrated Lime


Indian Chemical & Minerals is well-established manufacturer of High Purity Hydrated Lime (Calcium Hydroxide). The advantages of using high purity Hydrated Lime v/s Low Purity are enlisted to make our esteemed customers aware of the real fact.


Advantage of using Hi-grade Hydrated Lime having higher percentage of Calcium Hydroxide (+90%) over low grade (65% Purity) Hydrated Lime:

  • REDUCED REACTION TIME:
    The rate of chemical reaction depends upon the degree of purity of the Chemical being used. Higher the purity, lesser would be the reaction time.
  • REDUCED CONSUMPTION:
    By Quantitative Analysis it is established that 1 M. T. of 90% grade Hydrated Lime is equivalent to 1.378 M. T. of 65% purity Grade. Thus there is a reduction of 37.8% in consumption.
  • REDUCED HANDLING COST ETC:
    By using this high purity material, handling charges inclusive manpower can be reduced by 37% due to reduction in consumption. This is a direct saving in labour cost by the same proportion.
  • REDUCED TRANSPORTATION COST:
    Total transportation cost for carrying Low Grade (65% Purity) Hydrated Lime = Cost of Carrying 65% Pure material + Cost of Carrying 35% impure material.
    Total transportation Cost for carrying High Grade (90% Purity) Hydrated Lime = Cost of carrying 90% Pure material +Cost of carrying 10% impure material. Thus it’s clear that with same transportation Cost 25% more pure material / utilizable material can be transported.
  • LESS STORAGE SPACE:
    As there will be reduction in consumption, less Godown space would be required for storage purpose, there byreducing storage problem & inventory cost.
  • MINIMIZED DISPOSAL PROBLEM:
    Due to less consumption less sludge would be generated, resulting in reduced disposal cost. It is evident from above facts that by using High-grade Hydrated Lime containing higher percentage of Calcium Hydroxide (90%), the consumption can be reduced by around 38%, there by minimizing the storage and sludge disposal problem. Ultimately resulting in Over all Cost Reduction by 40 % to 45%.
