PORTA BATCH® - a mobile hot lime slurry production system - is a cost-effective and convenient way to use lime slurry at remote locations or on large jobs.
The self-contained, diesel-powered unit can slake quicklime (calcium oxide) or slurry hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide) to the percentage of solids required for each job. Controlled batching features such as accurate lime/water ratios, slaking temperature and agitation produce homogeneous lime slurry with a fine particle size. These particles have greater surface area, allowing faster reactivity and higher lime utilization.
Lhoist North America has successfully used PORTA BATCH® since 1984 to satisfy the needs of diverse customers. It is ideal for soil stabilization and recycled asphalt pavement; acid neutralization; water and wastewater treatment; environmental remediation and flue gas desulfurization projects.
Utilizing our PORTA BATCH® technology, we can locate these unique slakers in regional or local areas to provide a cost-effective, industrial lime slurry to a wide variety of customers and applications requiring hydrated lime. Typically, delivery is made in 5,000 gallon tankers containing 7 to 10 tons of calcium hydroxide slurry (dry weight), and transferred to the customer’s receiving/slurry storage vessel. Generally, the customer is then billed on a dry weight basis for the tons of calcium hydroxide delivered.
