Lime Kiln Linings

Lime Kiln Linings

Rotary lime kiln presents a very abrasive, thermally stressed environment. The refractory linings must be able to withstand chemical attack from fuels and raw materials, changes in temperature as well as mechanical stress from rotating elements.

Our refractory solutions are listed on the table below.
