Lime Slaker Systems

We manage the entire process of lime slaking system design, manufacture, and supply. Our expertise covers everything from linking and coupling the delivery tanker to the storage silo, right through to the precise dosing point in the process via the ring main.

Our lime slaker expertise spans the globe. Get in touch about your project requirements, and we’ll provide the ideal solution.

We emphasise safety and durability in our provided methods, ensuring these aspects are integral from material feed to discharge within the slaking system design. This meticulous approach has earned Lime Systems a solid reputation for producing and delivering hydrated lime that is not only safe and reliable but also highly efficient. This recognition has led to us being a trusted supplier of lime slaking equipment to prominent engineering contractors on a global scale.

Quicklime, also known as calcium oxide (CaO) or simply lime, is produced by heating limestone or calcium carbonate in big furnaces. During this heating process, CO2 is released from the stone, resulting in the formation of CaO along with some other small mineral components. This resulting CaO is what’s commonly recognised as high calcium quicklime. The process of quicklime slaking involves converting calcium oxide (quicklime) into calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2) or slaked lime by adding water to create a lime slurry. This conversion is crucial for various industrial applications of lime usage, including water treatment, temperature control, pH control, and soil stabilisation. We offer a range of solutions for quicklime slaking. These systems are designed to produce high-quality hydrated lime while minimising maintenance requirements and downtime.

The slaking process is completely automated and can be tailored to match the specific needs of our customers. Within each lime slaker, you’ll find a chamber equipped with a variable-speed agitator that ensures thorough hydration of the quicklime. The resulting slaked lime moves through a vibrating screen before being collected in a slurry tank. For transporting the slurry to its application point, we utilise a range of pumping solutions, including peristaltic pumps, centrifugal pumps, and air-operated diaphragm pumps. The outcome is a set of lime slakers that exhibit remarkable efficiency and can be installed both indoors and outdoors, depending on the particular requirements of each customer when lime quality is paramount.
