Calcium Carbide Production Plant


Calcium Carbide Production Plant

Moisture is removed from coke in a coke dryer, while limestone is converted to lime in a lime kiln. Fines from coke drying and lime operations are removed and may be recycled. Then, the solidified calcium carbide goes through primary crushing by jaw crushers, followed by secondary crushing and screening for size. To prevent explosion hazards from acetylene generated by the reaction of calcium carbide with ambient moisture, crushing and screening operations may be performed in either an air-swept environment before the calcium carbide has completely cooled, or in an inert atmosphere.

Calcium Carbide Crushing Operation

Calcium carbide is generally crushed in two or three stages: primary, secondary and tertiary crushing. The crushing process often involves one or more phases of screening to classify the different particle size.

The feeder moves the rock material to the crusher. The crusher breaks the rock into smaller grain size. The pirmary jaw crushers can break boulders that are about one cubic meter in size. From the crusher, the rock material is dropped onto the main conveyor that moves the end product upwards and then drops it into one big pile or into the feed hopper of the secondary crusher.

Calcium Carbide Crusher Types

Zenith is the poineer in stone crushing technology. We developed whole series of calcium carbide crusher plant for sale, such as jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher, gyratory crusher, VSI crusher etc. Here several calcium carbide crusher types. If you are interested, please contact us for more information.

The jaw crusher is a fully mobile, single toggle jaw crusher ideal for crushing in primary or secondary applications including the reduction of run-of-mine ore, blasted rock, river gravel, demolition or recycled concrete.


The cone crusher is a heavy-duty, track mounted cone crusher ideal for crushing in the quarrying, mining or aggregate industries including coal, aggregate, sand, construction or demolition waste, mine ore, blasted rock or river gravel applications.

The vertical impact crusher is a smaller type mobile impact crusher suitable for, and especially designed to process recycled mateiral and manufactured sand. The design specification of an impact crusher is to produce fine particle size suitable for layer work or filling on any earthworks application. It is one type of popular portable stone crushing plant.
