UN 1910

Transportation of quicklime involves transportation of calcium oxide, which is a lumpy white substance with a high degree of hygroscopicity. It is well diluted in a liquid with the release of heat and toxic gases, the quenching process. According to ADR, calcium oxide UN No. 1910 belongs to the 8th class of hazard, the division of alkali, which means that if it gets on the skin or mucous membranes, it causes severe burns, and dust and toxic fumes negatively affect the respiratory and visual organs. The transport of lime is a dangerous transport and is regulated by the relevant regulations. The transportation of lime by road is in great demand because it is very widely used: in the metallurgical industry, agriculture, chemical industry, construction, production of silicate products, building mixes, for wastewater treatment. During the delivery of quicklime, it is necessary to avoid contact with moisture, regardless of whether it is delivered in bulk by cement trucks, or in containers and packaging by tented vehicles.
