Atlantic Petroleum offers customers a variety of lime forms. The products listed below are available upon ordering:
- Hydrated Lime Slurry
- Hydrated Lime
When lime is made from limestone through the burning process, the lime emerging from the kiln is cooled and crushed to size, usually to a pebble about ¾ inches in diameter. This “pebble lime” is called quicklime. Chemical equation/Reaction summary: CaCO3 (limestone) + heat (2000° Fahrenheit) = CaO (quicklime) + CO2 (carbon dioxide gas)
Quicklime is often converted to hydrated lime, chemically known as calcium hydroxide, by adding just the right amount of water to satisfy this chemical reaction. This product is a dry powder having less than 2% free moisture. Calcium hydroxide has a molecular weight of 74 and has many applications.
Chemical equation/Reaction summary: CaO + H2O (water) = Ca(OH)2 (hydrated lime)
Hydrated Lime Slurry
The pebble lime (quicklime) and hydrated lime can be converted to lime slurry or “milk-of-lime” by adding an excess of water. This is useful when dusting during use is a problem as it renders a dust-free application. No manufacturing operations are required prior to use. Lime ties up heavy metal pollutants.
Atlantic Petroleum Lime slurry will be delivered from the plant near Pearland or Galena Park in Texas. The deliveries will be made in 5000 gallon tank trucks containing 50,000 lbs. of lime slurry. The trucks will deliver lime slurry that is about 40% solids and contains approximately 10 tons of dry solids. The purity of the solids portion will be 92% +/- 1% Ca (OH)2 (calcium hydroxide).
Atlantic Petroleum asks for 72 hours notice for requested delivery times. Atlantic Petroleum can make a delivery any time during daylight hours, and deliveries are made 6 days a week.
Atlantic Petroleum is a member of the Dun and Bradstreet Credit Agencies. Our credit terms are net 21 days from date of delivery. Invoices unpaid after 21 days are subject to a service charge of 1.5% per month.
