JorVet soda lime is a high-grade granular product that effectively absorbs carbon dioxide that is produced as an anesthesia by-product.

It is a mixture of calcium hydroxide Ca(OH)2 also known as lime plus a smaller amount of sodium hydroxide NaOH. Upon exposure to carbon dioxide CO2, the calcium hydroxide converts to calcium carbonate Ca(CO3). This prevents CO2 buildup in a re-breathing circuit.

The sodium hydroxide acts as a catalyst in the process. No potassium hydroxide (KOH) is present in JorVet soda lime; this helps to avoid the formation of toxic compounds such as Compound A and carbon monoxide.

JorVet soda lime has a pH color change indicator that changes from white to violet when the soda lime needs to be changed. It will eventually return to its original color if not changed. Therefore, a good rule of thumb is to replace the soda lime every time the vaporizer is filled.

  • Minimal dust
  • No KOH-minimizing chance of anesthetic reactions that produce toxins
  • Irregular particle size-creates more surface area
  • Saturation indicator built-in changes from white to violet
  • Particle size 4-8 USP Mesh (2.5mm-5mm)
