The Environmental Remediation Challenge: A waste-to-energy company needed to repair its slack lime unit which is critical for meeting the environmental regulations limiting the acidity of smoke fumes. The repair would greatly reduce its slack lime storage capacity, necessitating the expensive and potentially erratic use of stand-by lime delivery trucks.
The Baker Solution: A temporary bulk storage system using four Baker Mix Tanks was installed to keep the slack lime in continuous suspension. The high level of storage capacity allowed the customer to be less dependent on variations in the delivery schedules of their slack lime supplier.
It also allowed continuous operation of the waste-to-energy plant with full environmental compliance. Finally, the Baker tanks gave the customer all the time they needed during the repair of their slack lime unit.
