Soda lime is a chemical absorbent, containing mainly calcium hydroxide - Ca(OH)2 – and water. The calcium hydroxide reacts with the CO2 in the breathing circuit to form calcium carbonate which is retained within the absorber unit.The quantity and grade of soda lime used will have an effect on how long the soda lime will last within the system.Soda lime is generally graded by the particle size of the individual granules. In general, for a given volume of soda lime, a smaller particle size material will last longer than a larger particle size material.
