Handling

Bulk lump dolomite is delivered from lime Acres via either covered tipper road trucks or rail trucks. PPC Lime insists on all bulk dispatches to be covered prior to leaving our site. This is to prevent moisture pick up enroute to customers.

Storage

Bulk lime should be stored in enclosed bunkers or silos to prevent undue contact with moisture of contaminants that can compromise its quality
