11.17 Lime Manufacturing US EPA
The prevalent type of kiln is the rotary kiln, accounting for about 90 percent of all lime production in the United States. This kiln is a long, cylindrical, slightly inclined, refractory-lined furnace, through which the limestone and hot combustion gases pass countercurrently. Coal, oil, and natural gas may all be fired in rotary kilns.
US4259081A Process of calcining limestone in a rotary
A process for the calcining of limestone or hydrated lime by thermal treatment thereof with hot gases in a rotary kiln through which the kiln atmosphere and the charge are countercurrently passed, which kiln is fed with solid carbonaceous fuel, is described. The invention resides in introducing an oxygen-containing gas into a horizontal region across the rotary kiln defined by a point along ...
US6705859B2 Tapered grizzly bars for lime kiln Google
A grizzly bar device for a rotating kiln having an annular array of bars having at least two adjacent bars, wherein the thickness the bars is reduced in lateral and radial directions, and gap between the adjacent bars increases in width as the bars extend laterally from front to back of the bar and extend radially inward of the kiln.
Rotary Kilns FEECO International Inc.
Rotary kilns work by processing material in a rotating drum at high temperatures for a specified retention time to cause a physical change or chemical reaction in the material being processed. The kiln is set at a slight slope to assist in moving material through the drum. Direct-fired kilns utilize direct contact between the material and ...

2 2 Lime Kiln Principles And Operations
the kiln dries, heats, and calcines the counter-flowing lime solids. Rotary lime kilns in the pulp and paper industry range in size from 7 ft (2.1 m) in diameter by 175 ft (53 m) long to 13.5 ft (4 m) in diameter by 400 ft (122 m) long. The refractory lining is from 6 in. (15.2 cm) to 10 in. (25.4 cm) thick. Production
A Lime Rotary Kiln To Build Your Lime Calcinating Plant
Lime rotary kiln is also called roller rotary kiln. To make sure it’s air leakage coefficient is less than 10 percent, lime rotary kiln adopts advanced structure and reliable combined scale-like seal in both ends. It also uses composite refractory to reduce the loss of heat radiation.
