Mid River Minerals highly versatile lime and limestone products that provide high-performance, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly attributes and benefits for a broad range of industrial applications.
Our lime is used as a fluxing agent to remove impurities from molten steel in both electric arc and basic oxygen furnaces. Our products also have applications in the iron and secondary steel refining processes for the production of high quality metal.
Whether produced in a basic oxygen or electric arc furnace, steel often requires secondary refining to transform it into a saleable product, especially where ultra pure steel is required. Many secondary refining processes use lime to perform key functions, such as the adjustment of steel temperature or chemistry, the removal of additional impurities, and the prevention of re-absorption of impurities from slags. In addition, quicklime may be used with other materials, such as fluorspar or alumina, to form a synthetic slag, which is used as a flux to remove additional sulfur and phosphorus after the initial steel refining process.
Made from high quality, natural deposits of limestone, and meeting exacting chemical and physical properties, Mid River Mineral has a broad range of quicklime products that provide high-performance, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly attributes and benefits for a broad range of industrial applications.
FLOLIME a dolomitic pebble lime encapsulated with iron oxide coating that reduces breakage during mechanical handling at the steel plant, and provides cost-effective and environmental benefits.
