Limestone consumption in rotary kiln

Update date: Apr 27

Application of lime in rotary kiln sintering. Basically, the content of Cao in sinter is about 11%, which is second only to iron, and Cao is mostly introduced by adding lime, so lime is of great significance for the production of rotary kiln sinter. Adding Cao containing materials to sinter proportioning can reduce the amount of limestone in

    Oct 08, 2014 Conventional lime production in rotary kilns. Lime is produced by calcination of calcium carbonates in industrial kilns. The mineral calcite containing the calcium carbonates is the main component in naturally abundant limestone. The limestone is quarried or mined, mechanically pretreated and delivered to the lime plant

    Daswell limestone rotary kiln often works with vertical pre-heater and vertical cooler. For the preheater, it uses the exhaust hot air from the rotary lime kiln to heat the limestone so that can save energy in limestone cacination process. As a result, Daswell lime rotary kiln can make high capacity of burnt lime with low energy consumption

    Lime kilns can be categorized into three groups: rotary kilns, vertical kilns, and miscellaneous. About 90 percent of commercial lime capacity in the U.S. is calcined in rotary kilns. Most of the remaining capacity is processed with vertical kilns (vertical kilns are more common in captive supply facilities), and small quantities are processed

    The early use of simple rotary kilns had the advantages that a much wider range of limestone size could be used, from fines upwards, and undesirable elements such as sulfur can be removed. On the other hand, fuel consumption was relatively high because of poor heat exchange compared with shaft kilns, leading to excessive heat loss in exhaust gases
