Process Description

CHAENG can undertake the 200-1500t/d active lime production line EPC, including the reach report, civil engineering, designing, equipment, installation and debugging --- " turnkey” service with production capacity and standard achieved.

active lime production line working process

Qualified limestone (20 ~ 50 mm) are lifted by bucket elevator to top silo of preheater. There are two level indicators (up and down) controlling the feeding amount, then they are separated averagely into preheaters’ individual rooms. The limestone’s temperature rises to about 900℃ heated by kiln flue gas of 1150℃, about 30% of them are decomposed, and they come into the rotary kiln by hydraulic rod, where the limestone decomposed into CaO and CO2. The decomposed limestone are put into the cooler, where its temperatures drops to 100℃ and released. The hot air (600°C) will come to kiln after heat exchange, and mix with coal gas for mixture combustion. The exhaust gas is released by the blower into bag deduster through multi-pipe cooler, then into the chimney though exhaust blower.The limestone from the cooler will be transported to the limestone final product silo through vibrating feeder, chain conveyer, bucket elevator, belt conveyer.

In 2014 , a building material factory from guangxi province of China purchased a lime production line with annual output of 400,000 tons. The main equipment includes φ4.0×60m rotary kiln, φ2.4×4.75m coal mill, 5000 m² bag type dust collector. And all of these equipment were made by CHAENG independently, and CHAENG provided installation and commissioning guidance.

active lime production line project


1. High activity and good finished product effect

The activity of the finished product is as high as 360ml, the raw burning rate is less than 8%, and the quality is uniform.

2. Advanced technology, energy-saving and environmental protection

The calcination process is advanced and the energy consumption is low; the exhaust gas temperature is less than 220 ℃, which is convenient for dust collection and meets the requirements of energy-saving and environmental protection.

3. Large capacity

The single-line production capacity can reach 1200t/d.

4. High degree of automation and easy operation

Using DCS remote control system, high degree of automation.
