Question about hydrated lime?
    #4227275 - 05/27/05 06:35 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I am in the food service industry and use a gravel size limestone as a moister absorber similar to silica gel. As this limestone absorbs moister overtime it turns into a fine powder and is considered "spent". Is this not the same thing as hydrated lime and do you think it would be safe to use?

Secondly the casing tech that I read said to use hydrated lime as well as crushed oyster shell. Both are sources of calcium carbonate. could chalk (calcium carbonate), Aquarium PH buffers (usually calcium carbonate), crushed coral for marine aquariums, and calcium supplements from a health food store also work? is it necessary to use more then one form of calcium? I guess the oyster shells are more for support and aeration rather then buffering abilities?

I'm just curious and trying to find the best local source for this stuff.

Reality is a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

Oyster shell is for long term buffering for future flushes.
