How to Use Ca(OH)2 Mixing & Dedusting?

Posted in: , on 10. May. 2011 - 01:13

Dear Bulk specialists,

When mixing CaC2 with we get Ca(OH)2. We are interested in the opportunity to use this product in different building materials - gipsum fillers, mortars, coatings ets.

We have not experience in this field and any help is appreciated.

Best regards

Mixing calcium carbide with water will give you calcium hydroxide and acetylene. I assume you are using acetylene for some process and calcium hydroxide is a by product. If you react the Hydrated lime with SOx you will get calcium sulphate or gypsum. I think you are looking in the wrong forums to give you process advice.
