Slaking Slaking is the process for making lime putty. Quicklime is added to water and a chemical reaction occurs resulting in the release of a large amount of heat from the quicklime creating a boiling liquid. Chemically the calcium oxide is converted to calcium dihydroxide. The longer the slaked lime is matured in the tank the better the lime
Lime is available in two dry forms, quicklime (CaO) and hydrated lime (Ca(OH)2). When using quicklime it is usually first slurried with water, which converts it to calcium hydroxide prior to adding it to the sludge. This process, which is called slaking, produces heat and thus special equipment is required.

If large quantities of rock . are present, include a statement in the lime section of the soil survey report that the Quicklime is normally used in slurry form that is prepared in a slaking tank on the project. The lime slurry is hauled to the roadway and placed via special slurry

The slaking of the pebble lime and powdered quick lime has to be engineered in respect to their exothermic reactions. The lime slaker mixes quicklime with water to create calcium hydroxide in a solution which is called lime slurry. Slakers are good for a high volume consumption, or high demand, of calcium.

The savings on effort and equipment make ready mixed lime mortar an attractive proposition for anything other than large works, especially given its long shelf-life. Lime Putty is produced by slaking quicklime. It is matured and then used to make Non-Hydraulic Lime Mortar,
Slaking of quicklime and mixing of dry powdered lime should be carried out in a well-ventilated area. Hot mixing is a further building site risk as temperatures can reach 300ºC. Personal protective equipment gloves, breathing apparatus/masks and goggles must be worn for all work involving lime.
Slaking quick lime in water can produce heat sufficient to boil the water, so regulate the amount of lime you add to the water at any one time, so the mixture doesn’t splash. Wear goggles or safety glasses to protect your eyes and stir the mix with a wooden stick while adding the lime to the water.
