Ndola Lime Company Limited is a market leader in production and supply of limestone products in Zambia and SADC/COMESA region.
Agricultural lime is ground limestone used for neutralizing acidic soils. Most soils develop acid and become poor with the passage of time due to various factors. The consequence of acid and poor workability of soils is that it leads to unhealthy crops and reduces yields. Acid in the soil creates a barrier that hinders movement of nutrients from the soil to the plant.
Hydrated Lime or slaked lime is another quality productfrom Ndola Lime. The product is used for pH control in mining metallurgy and other chemical industries. It is also used for soil stabilization road construction. Roads with a base stabilized with hydrated lime last longer and prove to be cheaper in the long run.
LIMESTONE / KILNSTONE
Limestone is various sizes with the same chemical and physical composition. The sizes are 0-10mm (fluxstone), (10-19mm) and (19-35mm) kilnstone. The limestone serves as the raw material for quicklime production
QUICKLIME / UNSLAKED
At minimum 90% total calcium oxide produced to customer required particle size, Ndola Lime quicklime is used for pH control in mining metallurgical process and various chemical industries. Quicklime is also used in road construction for soil stabilization leading to construction of lasting roads.
A flux is a chemical cleaning agent, flowing agent, or purifying agent. Fluxes may have more than one function at a time. They are used in both extractive metallurgy and metal joining. Domestically, fluxstones are used for block making while in industrial it is used in the floatation as fluxstone.
