Chemlime provides our customers with two separate products.
* Carbide Lime Slurry - a by-product from the generation of acetelyne gas. Carbide slurry is an
economical, hydrated lime, delivered by tankwagon direct from the producer of acetelyne gas.
We have numerous producers of this product up and down the East
Coast as well as the Mid-West region of the United States.
* Commercial High-Calcium Lime Slurry - Chemlime purchases quick-lime or hydrated lime from three
different sources. We then slake, mix and store this product. After we settle the lime slurry,
it is then transported to our customers.
Both of these lime products are sold on a delivered, dry solids basis, in tankwagons of
pproximately 4,500 gallons at 35% solids content, or 9 to 10 dry tons.

Calcium Hydroxide Ca(OH)(% by weight) 90-93%.
