Quicklime is produced from high calcium carbonate content limestones with up to 96% purity. These stones are filled into vertical kiln and fired at high temperature up to 900 centigrade. At the end of the calcination process, limestone is converted into quicklime.
Quicklime is used in waste treatment, insecticides and industrial alkali. Other uses include:
Neelkanth hydrated lime is produced by multiple process through an automated plant under the supervision of qualified staff to ensure quality and consistency of the product.
Neelkanth agriculture lime is a soil additive made from pulverized limestone which contains high calcium with 96% purity. These stones are crushed in a crusher to make crystal fine lime powder products (sized 0.1-2 mm) which can be used for quick acidity adjustment and elemental calcium for producing top yields and profits.
Some of the major uses of Neelkanth agricultural lime include:
• It subdues the acidity in the soil.
• It provides a source of calcium for plants.
• It permits improved water penetration for acidic soils.
Crushed limestone powder
Neelkanth crushed limestone powder is produced from high calcium carbonate content limestones with up to 96% purity. These stones are crushed in a crusher to make crystal-fine lime powder products.
Some of the major uses of crushed limestone powder include:
• As a hardener in glass industry
• Used as an additive in paints to reduce the opacity
Used in construction of roads as base course, cement blocks, etc.
