HPS Kilns for medium- and hard-burnt lime


THE HPS KILN FROM MAERZ. FOR THE CALCINATION OF LOW-REACTIVE QUICKLIME.

The Maerz HPS KilnLow-reactive burnt lime is used for the production of sand lime bricks, aerated concrete bricks and aerated concrete blocks. Previously, no modern shaft kiln was really well adapted to the production of low-reactive burnt lime. This is why Maerz designed, constructed and patented a new single-shaft kiln, the HPS kiln (high-performance shaft kiln). It consistently delivers low-reactive burnt lime with the best quality and the highest energy efficiency.

Maerz HPS kilns feature:

  • Use of cooled burner lances, which protrude into the hot bed of material and are adjustable.
  • Precisely adjustable operating temperature resulting in individual specific product reactivity.
  • Highest specific heat load in correlation to shaft diameter and thus highly compact design.
