    What is the difference between Lime and Ground Carbonate (GCC)

    Lime is produced by heating limestone in a kiln to change the mineral into calcium oxide, and calcium carbonate (aka: pulverized limestone or fine grind) is produced by pulverizing high-grade calcium minerals, in Pete Lien & Sons' case limestone, into a ground granular or power sized finished product. Pete Lien & Sons sells both Lime and Calcium Carbonate products.

     

    Does Pete Lien & Sons sell AgLime?

    Yes, the name 'AgLime' is a bit deceiving because it is not lime, instead it is agricultural crushed limestone. Pete Lien & Sons sells 'AgLime' out of CO & WY in the form of Ground Calcium Carbonate.

    Pete Lien & Sons also supplies Quicklime and Hydrated Lime out of our CO, SD & WY facilities.

    What do you mean by 'Fine Grind'?

    Fine Grind is the process of pulverizing limestone. There are many different names for Fine Grind material. They include; pulverized limestone/mineral, ground calcium carbonate (GCC), cal. carb., mineral filler, and AgLime to name a few. To complicate things further, each fine grind manufacturer has a different brand name for pulverized limestone.
