Lime is a versatile chemical with many uses. It is vital in the production of countless materials. Lime, or calcium oxide (CaO), is derived from high quality natural deposits of limestone, or calcium carbonate (CaCO3).
Limestone is a sedimentary rock that formed millions of years ago as the result of the accumulation of shell, coral, algal, and other ocean debris. Lime is produced when limestone is subjected to extreme heat, changing calcium carbonate to calcium oxide.
Nowadays, Lime powder and lime stone goes into glass production, paper manufacturing, agricultural practices, chemical processes, plaster, mortar and other building materials, to name a few.
Because of the high specific gravity of limestone and lime powder, Jumbo bags are most commonly used in storage and transporting these substances with capacity of 1000 - 2000kg.
Specifications of Jumbo bags for lime powder
Jumbo bags or FIBC bulk bag containing lime powder are made from PP woven fabric (Polypropylene fabric) with the structure including top, body, bottom, loops and can be coated with a layer of PP or PE liner.
Top: The PP woven bag for limestone will has an open top. However, when filling and discharge lime powder using jumbo FIBCs, it is necessary to limit dust from flying outside for the purpose of protecting the environment, workers' health and maintaining the hygiene of the factory. Therefore, a spout top bulka bag is chosen to transport lime powder and create a closed packing process.
