Steel Manufacturing

The purifier

  • Lime plays a major role in the steel manufacturing process
  • It acts as a flux in purifying steel during the heating phase by encouraging fusion of the slag
  • It also removes phosphorus, sulphur, silicon and manganese as the steel is heated
  • Lime is also commonly used as a lubricant in wire drawing as the steel rods are drawn through dies

Graymont's lime can take the heat

  • The most common use for our burnt lime (quicklime), limestone chip and hydrated lime products is in the steel manufacturing industry
