Economic efficiency

Due to its efficiency and cost-effectiveness, the PFR kiln, developed by Maerz, has become established worldwide. We are constantly working to further develop and optimise our kilns.

Good limestone is precious

To produce high quality quicklime, you need good limestone. And that is rare. The quarry is therefore one of the most important components of a lime plant. The highest possible proportion of the valuable resource "limestone" should be able to be used for the production of quicklime.

With a combination of different kiln types, the degree of utilisation of your quarry can be significantly increased. The diagram shows the whole range of usable stone sizes. With our Finelime® kilns, you can use smaller limestone without any problems, even at high production rates.
