In addition, crystalline limestones and dolomite stones (which break down during handling), natural occurring fine aragonites, and limestone sands can also be treated by the flash calcination system of the present invention to produce a quality lime or dolime product. The process of claim 5 wherein there are four burners evenly spaced around the circumference of the furnace in a single horizontal plane. The flash calcination product produced by the present process has produced products having a high surface area (B.E.T. These total available oxides represent 97-98% of the potential total oxides possible from these examples. The cyclone 301 discharges air for combustion through an outlet 312 to the calciner furnace 50. 2.1.2 Calcination Limestone is converted into lime through heating in a kiln, a process known as calcination. The process of claim 1 wherein the fuel utilized is liquid fuel. 2, will preferably encompass substantially the entire furnace cross-sectional area in order to guarantee contact between material and combusting fuel at each level, although, a less extensive flame pattern may be acceptable depending upon the needs of the practitioner of the invention. Also, when the end-product is used for metallurgical lime (which requires a +1/4" product), the -1/4" fraction is usually removed from the limestone before feeding, thus generating another waste material. 3 at 300 and is a device for cooling the material by suspending it in ambient air and is shown as a pair of serially connected cyclones 301 and 302 each having an inlet for gas and entrained material, an outlet for separated solids and an outlet for separated gas.

When such burners are evenly spaced and are fed with identical amounts of a consistent fuel/air mixture, there will be produced a uniform flame pattern, indicated by numeral 201, in the horizontal plane in which burners 191, 192, 193 and 194 are located. Calcination, the heating of solids to a high temperature for the purpose of removing volatile substances, oxidizing a portion of mass, or rendering them friable.Calcination, therefore, is sometimes considered a process of purification. Limestone chip 15–50 mm in size is sent to the calcination plant, while other sizes are used in other processes. This invention relates to a process and apparatus for maximizing the availability of lime and dolime products and controlling recarbonization and reactivity. 9. Thus, the preheater 10 serves to carry out the process step of drying solid material while said material is in suspension in hot spent preheater gases, which gases travel to preheater 10 from flash calciner 50. University of Seville. The process of claim 1 wherein the fuel utilized is solid fuel. Calcination or calcining is a thermal treatment process to bring about a thermal decomposition. However, the material may be introduced at any point in the vessel, depending on the desired qualities of the product to be produced by the process of the present invention. FIG. a. introducing the preheated raw material to the bottom of a generally vertically oriented gas suspension calcining furnace maintained at a temperature sufficient to calcine said raw material, whereby said preheated raw material is thereafter suspended in an ascending stream of heated gas to thereby pass vertically upwardly through the gas suspension calcining furnace; b. passing the ascending gas stream through a plurality of burners into which fuel and air are injected, said burners being vertically spaced from each other in the gas suspension furnace at a number of levels, and. A one-dimensional mathematical model was developed for the simulation of limestone calcination in rotary kilns. In a typical operation, 1 to 4 stages of a suspension preheater can be used depending on the operating temperature of the calciner and the rate of heat transfer between material and hot gases. Step 3. Feed material is generally 10 mesh or finer. All of these materials are added to the growing waste piles of fines that are being given away below their potential value as a lime source. Calcination is done to bring about some change in the substance physical or chemical constitution. Calcination backed by expertise is essential in controlling and reaching the desired end product characteristics of a given kaolin material. The -200 mesh fraction for this step was to be controlled to be less than 20%. Attempts have been made to use fluid bed reactors to calcine limestone and dolomite fines, but dust losses in the waste gas to the cyclone and baghouse in excess of 20% of the feed have occurred. 8. The separated preheater material now drops into another duct 72 and enters, via duct 24, second stage preheater 21 where it is preheated by the gas of preheater 22 to a higher temperature. In the preferred embodiment of the present invention, the intimate mixing of the fuel, air, and feed material will produce a uniform temperature pattern in the furnace by independent control of each burner on all burner levels. The heart of any flash calciner system is the calcining furnace itself. Today, this reaction largely occurs in a cement kiln.. The temperature of the exit gas mostly CO2 and the temperature of the calcination was measured. An excavator loads the loosened limestone into dump trucks for delivery to the on-site crushing plant. It has been discovered that a higher degree of calcination is required for lime and dolomite as composed to cement raw materials, which are commonly processed in such flash calcining systems. Such a material cooler is generally indicated in FIG. In many cases it may be possible for flash calcination to recover the dust catch materials which are currently blown out of the back end of rotary kiln and fluid bed processes, which are collected in cyclones, baghouses, etc., and then disposed. These materials were prepared to either -20 mesh or -10 mesh depending on the percentage of -200 mesh produced during preparation. 1 is located near the bottom 62 of vessel 50. The material exits cyclone 22 at point 30 and enters, via conduit 91 and entry point 45, flash calciner 50 wherein it will enter the calcining zone, which, as indicated below, contains temperature controls for facilitating maintaining the temperature at a desired processing temperature for the particular material being processed. 5. Submit Close. Email. The standard Gibbs free energy of reaction is approximated as ΔG° r ≈ 177,100 − 158 T (J/mol). 5 and 6 illustrates the hydration curves from samples processed according to the present invention. Thus, the preheater 10 includes an inlet 6, which leads to conduit 23, for material to be processed, an outlet 26 for spent preheating gas and an outlet 30 for preheated material.
