Solutions for Recausticizing

Recausticizing consists of technology that converts green liquor and lime through several processes to high-quality, homogenous white liquor and lime mud. An efficient and controlled flow between green liquor and lime is essential to ensure optimal processes.

Laitex conveyor systems are designed to support solid material flows in recausticizing plant, including lime and ESP dust.

Recausticizing plant’s material handling

Laitex has designed and supplied conveying systems for a variety of conditions, each with its own challenges. Through our strong knowledge of materials, our equipment is applicable globally.

Lime conveyors

Lime is another of the main raw materials in the recausticizing process. Lime is conveyed in three different forms during recausticizing. First, the lime is conveyed to the causticizers where the white liquor is produced. In addition to the white liquor, the process produces lime mud, which is conveyed to both a lime kiln and a smelt dissolving tank to stabilize the green liquor.

The lime mud resulting from the combination of lime and green liquor is burned and re-utilized in the recausticizing process. The moist and sticky mass requires special precision and material expertise in the design of the conveyors.

ESP equipment

Recausticizing process also produces flue dust that is captured usually with Electrostatic precipitators, ESP equipment. The particles from a gas stream are electrically charged and attracted to collector plates carrying the opposite charge. The solid ESP dust is conveyed for further processing.

For collecting flue gases and conveying ESP dust, Laitex designs and supplies conveyors . Even one of the world’s largest recovery boilers relies on our reliable and efficient equipment.
