New Release! Lime Kilns and Recausticizing: The Forgotten Part of a Kraft Mill

Written for entry-level and operating engineers who are new to the industry, Lime Kilns and Recausticizing: The Forgotten Part of a Kraft Mill serves as a training resource, and as an in-depth reference guide and refresher for more seasoned engineers in this area of the mill that is often overlooked in most textbooks.

This new resource reviews the entire kraft chemical recovery cycle, as well as lime kiln chemistry, and includes 11 chapters dedicated to all areas of the kiln, both process and mechanical.

It covers:

  • Recausticizing chemistry
  • Green liquor scale formation
  • Recausticizing equipment
  • Recausticizing process control

Editors Peter W. Hart, TAPPI Fellow, director – Fiber Science, WestRock; Glenn M. Hanson III, TAPPI Fellow, technical sales support- NCA, Metso Outotec; and Richard P. Manning, technical consultant worked together to provide a solid theoretical foundation, intermixed with practical operating experiences and troubleshooting guides. 

“As more seasoned engineers retire, they take with them the knowledge about overlooked areas like the lime kiln,” said Hart. “Our intent is to help fill the gap for new engineers, providing them good operating practices and a solid understanding of the theories that back them up.”
