Longcal

High purity calcium carbonate granules

At our Brassington Moor quarry in Derbyshire, we process very high-purity carboniferous limestone to produce our Longcal range of granular calcium carbonates. The Longcal range is a granulated product available in sizes from 300µm to 5000µm, making it highly suitable as a carrier for animal feed supplements among other applications. Within our dedicated processing plant, we crush, mill, dry and classify the pure limestone to produce granules of exceptional purity and consistency. Our outstanding level of attention to detail ensures our customers receive only the finest granulated limestone from our quarry. We are ISO 9001, FEMAS and TASCC accredited, so you can trust us to deliver quality products all year round.
