Modular Lime Slaking Systems 
6.2 TPD Lime Slaking System with enclosed bag breaking hopper and hydrated lime storage tank

Westpro's Custom Lime Slaking Systems incorporate a combination of Westpro's products including detention slakers, grinding mills, vibrating screens, VP pumps and process control systems.  Our systems capacities range from 0.13TPH to 30TPH.  Larger capacities may be available upon request.

Westpro Lime Slaking Systems are modular systems designed to accept dry lime feed from screw conveyors and only require a single water feed. The actual lime slaking process is performed either in a detention slaker or in a ball mill type slaker.  In either case the slaking process is automated, controlled by a PLC which monitors both lime and water feed rates, slaking temperature and lime:water ratio.  Emergency response to over-temperature conditions are built in, as is automated shutdown and flushing of the slaker.

Each Lime Slaking System can be fully customized for each application with the addition of options such as lime storage silos (with silo fill blowers), bag breaking hoppers (with monorail and hoist), dust control systems and wet scrubbers, milk of lime storage tanks and more.

Our lime slaking systems are completely engineered structurally and mechanically in 3D with the latest design software.  Assemblies include all piping and electrical work. All plants are constructed in pieces, shipped worldwide and assembled together onsite.  Westpro’s own machine, fabrication and assembly shop and network of subcontractors provides flexibility to meet short delivery times while still maintaining high quality standards.
