Application

Quicklime is an important substance for the recovery of lye in pulp production. It is produced in the lime kiln through the combustion of lime sludge from causticisation. The quicklime is conveyed via a bucket elevator into the quicklime silo, where it is temporarily stored, and then discharged via screw conveyors into the lime dosing feeder for the causticising process. Continuous level measurement in the quicklime silo is required to ensure a reliable supply is readily available.
