Applications - Quicklime
The removal of acid constituents, such as sulfur dioxide, hydrochloric acid and hydrogen fluoride, from flue gases using ground white quicklime, e.g. in the dry sorption process, is state of the art. Märker produces a ground white lime hydrate with a high volume yield for this application. In addition, Märker offers the special binder product Sorbalit®.
The diversity of possible uses of quicklime from Märker is evident in the construction and building materials industries. Ground white quicklime or white hydrated lime is a basic constituent in the production of sandlime bricks and aerated concrete blocks. Hydrated lime is an important binder in mortars and plasters.
