Detailed Investigation of Lime Kiln Mud Ring Formation

Detailed Investigation of Lime Kiln Mud Ring Formation

At a 700 tonne/day lime kiln, rapid ring formation occurred immediately after the chain section over a two day period, causing a mill shutdown. Lime mud solids content remained at 75 to 80 wt% during this event. The ring material was relatively soft and extended for a distance of approximately 20 meters from the chain section. This kiln did not have a history of ring formation

Lime kiln ring formation occurs at many mills. Severity of the problem can vary. In the worst case, a mill shutdown will occur if sufficient purchased lime is not available to replace produced lime. Unscheduled shutdowns are a significant expense due to additional labour costs, lime purchases and lime mud disposal costs. Decreased kiln production from ring formation is a significant expense at mills where

Ring formation in lime kilns is a persistent problem in many pulp mills, limiting the kiln production capacity, and in severe cases, resulting in unscheduled kiln shutdown for ring removal. As lime mud/lime solids slide and tumble through the kiln, they cover the refrac-tory brick surface with a layer of dust. The deposited dust

Oct 24, 2012 Avoiding the formation of rings in rotary kilns is an issue of primary concern to the cement production industry. We developed a numerical combustion model that revealed that in our case study rings are typically formed in zones of maximal radiative heat transfer. This local overheating causes an overproduction of the liquid phase of the granular material, which tends to stick to the oven’s

Lime kiln - Wikipedia

A lime kiln is a kiln used for the calcination of limestone (calcium carbonate) to produce the form of lime called quicklime (calcium oxide).The chemical equation for this reaction is . CaCO 3 + heat → CaO + CO 2. This reaction can take place at anywhere above 840 C (1544 F), but is generally considered to occur at 900 C(1655 F) (at which temperature the partial pressure of CO 2 is 1
