Iron Making


A lime calcination facility is used to make calcium oxide (CaO) by calcining limestone (CaCO3) from a mine. Calcium oxide is added to the hot metal that underwent the iron making process with impurities eliminated to improve the quality of the hot metal. In addition, calcium oxide is also used as a pyrogen in the production of sintered ore thanks to its high calorific value.

We have competitiveness and knowhow in the construction of lime calcining facilities. With such proven technology capability, we have successfully performed the design, procurement, construction and commissioning of lime calcining facilities.
