Korean lime producer, Daesung MDI, has ordered a second kiln from Maerz Ofenbau AG, following installation of its first Maerz PFR kiln in 2014. The new kiln will have a capacity of 300 tpd and is slated for start-up and commissioning in 2H18.
According to Maerz, the E5 Maerz lime shaft kiln will process limestone with variable gradings, such as 25 – 55 mm, 40 – 80 mm, or 55 – 100 mm. A mixture of bituminous coal and anthracite will be used as fuel.
The scope of supply includes engineering, license, know-how, material, and equipment. Local contractors will be appointed for the erection of the kiln and the lime plant with all related auxiliary equipment, although Maerz will provide technical assistance during erection, as well as for commissioning, and start-up.
The new plant will be located in Yeongwol County in the province of Gangwon in South Korea.
