Industrial Filtration for the Lime Industry

Lime is produced from limestone using a lime kiln and is used to produce quicklime or hydrated lime, using heat or water. Lime plants have processes similar to cement plants including:

  • Crushing
  • Calcination
  • Kilns

SUN Filter has demonstrated success supplying and installing various types of baghouse filtration solutions and service for various parts of lime plant. We can meet your specific needs and solve your application problems similar to the following examples:

  • Premature filter life
  • High pressure drop or drag resistance
  • Emissions
  • Product and profit loss

Similar to cement, the alternatives for air filtration in the lime industry are traditional bag filters, ePTFE, and pleated bags. Our Pleat Plus® Pleated bags are shorter than filter bags, however the filtration efficiency remains the same due to the filter design and material. Pleated Bags is a one-piece design with integrated cage and can be retrofitted directly into existing bag houses without any baghouse modification. This enables quicker installation.
