Brief description: Maerz kiln consists of two vertical shafts and a connecting crossover channel. Both shafts work with each other. While one calcines the product, the other preheats the stone. In the burning shaft the lime is calcined in parallel flow. The hThis allows the regenerative preheating of the stone to take place (the stone in the preheating zone of the kiln acts as heat exchanger) and thus for the maximum use of the heat contained in the kiln gases.
