Material Flow Test: Powdered Hydrated Lime

Hydrated lime is a surprisingly versatile material, used to make both bricks and better tortillas.

Lime is used to make sugar and purify sugar from other sources like maple. It is added to milk to produce butter or convert it into skim milk. It can be added to whey to form calcium lactate, which can be used for other products. Lime is also used to treat waste materials and to manufacture refractory bricks.

AirSweep pneumatic material flow aids are very effective for bulk powders and materials like hydrated lime. Watch the video to see how the AirSweep system can help prevent material blocks and promote on-demand material flow.
