Quicklime Blends

Graymont produces both high-calcium and dolomitic quicklime at a number of facilities, and has the capability to blend these products in controlled ratios to meet customers' particular needs.


Such blends are used, for example, by the steel industry, which utilizes both high-calcium and dolomitic quicklime.

One such blending facility is located at our Cricket Mountain plant in Utah. Graymont can blend different sizes of dolomitic and high-calcium products prior to loading. These blends are very beneficial as customers need only have storage and handling for one product rather than two, resulting in cost saving at their plants.

Did you know?

Lime is among the oldest and most vital materials used by humans. Most ancient languages have a word for calcium oxide. In Latin it is calx, from which the name of the element calcium is taken.
