Lime Slaker Heating

A power plant needed to improve the lime slaking heating process for flue gas desulphurization and cleaning. A power plant was looking to improve their lime slaking process for flue gas desulphurization and cleaning. They needed to: instantly meet and maintain precise temperature control for proper mixing of slurry, increase production with reduced cycle times, and reduce energy costs.

SOLUTION

Hydro-Thermal’s EZ Heater model H2020 EHS System was installed in this facility for the slaker water heating process. Installation of the unit has proven the inherent advantages of its design with: better product quality with precise temperature control, instantaneous hot water on demand with adjustable flow rates, increased production time due to faster product heating, 28% time and energy savings compared to previous heating technologies.

GOAL

• Precise temperature control
• Reduce cycle times
• Reduce energy costs

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

• Precise temperature control
• Hot water on demand
• Increased production
• 28% more time and energy savings
