Lime is vital to the production of sugar from both sugar cane and sugar beets. Milk of lime is used in the sugar industry for pH correction and as a precipitant for removal of colour and impurities from the sugar solution during refining.
Poor quality milk of lime makes the refining process difficult and wasteful. It is very important to have a high quality milk of lime with consistent chemical and physical characteristics available to the process.
A high calcium lime with a low level of impurities and consistent quality is required for efficient and less wasteful sugar refining process.
