ture of the flue-gas desulphurisation process (790–850°C) [1]. Apart from the limestone, several technologies use other substances, e.g., lime mud (CaCO 3) or Ca(OH) 2 that come from technological processes [7] or are by-products of various dolomite applications [15]. The usual limestone particle size ranges between 100 and


process. During the calcination of limestone, moisture, and volatile organic matter are first driven off. At higher tem-peratures, the partial pressure of CO2 increases and decomposition of the car-bonate begins. Decomposition does not progress at a rapid rate, however,


The limestone behavior in an oxy-fuel CFB process was studied by means of modeling. Different modeling methods were combined: the calculation of particle trajectories in a three-dimensional steady state CFB furnace model was utilized to investigate the real process environment which the particles experience and a particle model was used to study the …

11.17 Lime Manufacturing

11.17.1 Process Description 1-5 Lime is the high-temperature product of the calcination of limestone. Although limestone deposits are found in every state, only a small portion is pure enough for industrial lime manufacturing. To be classified as limestone, the rock must contain at least 50 percent calcium carbonate. When the rock contains


A. CHEMCIAL COMPOSITION OF LIMESTONE The chemical composition of the limestone cannot be controlled without a major cost impact on manufacturing; therefore, variation is generally accepted. The calcination temperature should be controlled very closely. To heat the limestone evenly in the kiln, the particle size of feed must be relatively uniform.

An empirical sulfation model was established based on the experimental results, which can well predict the sulfation process of different limestone particle sizes at low SO 2 concentrations. The model parameters have a strong negative correlation against the particle size, and the fit of the reaction order of SO 2 was found to be about 0.6.


Limestone, or calcium carbonate, is the common rock found throughout the world. Oldest and perhaps slightly overlooked, limestone is very much part of our everyday life. It may be hidden with your walls, in the water you drink, the food you consume, or in the cosmetics.
