Kalic Liquid Lime

Kalic Liquid Lime is a “milk of lime,” (suspension of calcium hydroxide). Unlike conventional milks of lime, it is highly stable in suspension and very fast reacting, making it is easy and cost effective to store and use.

Kalic Liquid Lime is a stable liquid lime with consistent easy handling characteristics with fine and consistent particle size. It is a readymade, stable suspension of calcium hydroxide in water (milk of lime). With typical solids concentration of 18% w/w and particle size of approx. 1 micron. it contains no additives or additions, and can be handled as a liquid, eliminating the difficulties associated with powder and slurry.

Effluent Management at Toyota UK

Kalic Liquid Lime enabled Toyota UK to maintain the high standard of effluent management and reduce the use of more expensive and hazardous treatment chemicals at their vehicle manufacturing plant in Burnaston, Derbyshire.

The central effluent treatment, although effective, required updating. The original system for dosing treatment chemicals was manpower intensive, requiring frequent maintenance and operator attention. A cleaner, simpler and more reliable alternative was a priority. Ideally the updated system would incorporate a liquid chemical rather than the powder which was in use.

Buxton Lime & Powders Technical Sales were asked to advise. Site visits and a technical review of the process resulted in the recommendation to adopt “Kalic” liquid lime. A full scale trial was carried out using one of the trial storage and dosing systems operated by Buxton Lime & Powders, monitored by the Technical Sales team, and the 2 month trial was a complete success. This led to the installation of modified storage facilities and new dosing system which has proved to be an ideal solution, providing reliable low maintenance operation.

Buxton Lime & Powders have now developed “Kalic HS”, a more concentrated grade of liquid lime, which has been adopted at the Burnaston plant, leading to lower costs and a reduction in the volumes of delivered chemicals.
