Lime Manufacture,Lime Manufacturing Equipment
In addition to being used as an industrial material, limestone is used to produce lime. Lime (CaO) is an important manufactured product with many industrial, chemical, and environmental applications. Lime production involves three main processes: stone preparation, calcinations, and hydration. Stone preparation includes crushing screening, and washing it removes impurities. Calcining is the heating of limestone to convert the calcium carbonate into calcium oxide. This process is typically carried out in a rotary or vertical shaft kiln. Required temperatures of the kilns exceed 1800 degrees. The product of calcining is quicklime which can be used as "pebble lime" or may be crushed or pulverized, depending on its intended use. The quicklime is then hydrated or combined with water, in continuous hydrators. The end product is a fine dry powder, or with excess water, pumpable milk of lime.
