Lime is a primary input in mining, because the use of it is not only associated with the extraction of copper, gold and silver, but also with the smelting of metals.

Calcium hydroxide (Ca (OH) 2) is produced by reacting water (H2O) and quicklime (CaO) in a process called lime slaking. Its main use in mining is seen in the neutralization of pH in unit operations such as flotation.

This damper is equipped with a rotary feeder, the belt feeder, a water control panel for dosing the slaking water, dilution water, spray water and includes a modulating valve, flow meter, solenoid valves, valves Manuals and pressure reducing valve with each damper. It has a stirrer that vigorously mixes the water and quicklime continuously into a thick suspension. This allows the calcium oxide (quicklime) to react with the water to form calcium hydroxide.

It also offers a variety of equipment for the handling, preparation and dosing of milk of lime. Among them are the equipment such as breaker, hydro-injector skid, gravimetric dispenser, Sodimix mixing systems.
