A Mathematical Model and Simulation of Lime Shaft Kilns

RO Olayiwola


In this paper a mathematical model to predict the heat transfer in a lime kiln is presented. We assume the reaction is not well-stirred. We examine the properties of solution under certain conditions. The governing equations are solved analytically using high activation energy asymptotics. Results are presented and potential implications are discussed.

Keywords: lime shaft kiln, lime production, calcinations, simulation, shaft furnaces
