Just as lime is produced by calcining limestone:

CaCO3 CaO + CO2


Limestone lime carbon dioxide So dolomitic lime is manufactured from dolomitic limestone (dolomite).

CaCO3.MgCO3 CaO +MgO +2CO2

Thus dolomitic lime is a mixture of lime and magnesia.

Dolomitic limestone (dolomite) has normally been formed by the replacement of some of the calcium in limestone with magnesia, a process known as dolomitisation.

Theoretically dolomitic lime should be a stoichiometric mixture of CaO and MgO, i.e. 58% CaO and 42% MgO. In practice, because of impurities and differing levels of dolomitisation commercial products normally contain 35 - 40 % MgO .

Dolomitic lime is also known as:

calcined dolomite
dolime
lightly calcined dolomite
burnt dolomite

Uses

Plants producing dolomitic lime are much less common that those producing quicklime this is partially because dolomite is less widely distributed than limestone, but also because of the more restricted uses.

The principal use of dolomitic lime is in the steel industry as a flux together with conventional lime. (see Iron and Steel industry) In the UK around 250,000 tons per year are used for this purpose.

Dolomitic lime is also used in other applications as a source of lime and magnesia, or as an alkali to raise pH.
