The slakers and causticizers are where the liquid-based chemical reactions of the recaust area occur. The purpose of slaking and causticizing is to convert clarified green liquor to white liquor for use in the digesters. This module will discuss the role of slaking and causticizing in the recaust system as well as identify and describe the major equipment and process flows.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the role of slaking and causticizing in the recaust system
  • Describe the slaking and causticizing chemical reactions
  • Identify and describe the major equipment and process flows
  • Describe operating considerations for slaking and causticizing
  • Identify key safety considerations when working around a slaker and causticizers

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is slaking?
Slaking is the reaction that occurs when solid lime, or calcium oxide is added to water, creating calcium hydroxide.

What is causticizing?
Causticizing is a reaction in which sodium carbonate in green liquor reacts with calcium hydroxide from the slaker to form sodium hydroxide and calcium carbonate.

How is the slaker temperature controlled?
Slaker temperature is controlled by changing the temperature of green liquor flowing into the slaker.

At what temperature does a slaker operate?
Slaking is a reaction which gives off heat, so the slaker operates near the boiling point of water.

What is causticizing efficiency?
Causticizing efficiency is how much sodium carbonate is converted to sodium hydroxide, or how effective the recausticizing process is.

Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

The slaker is a combination vessel that consists of a large tank called, the slaker bowl and an incline classifer. Its purpose is to mix lime and green liquor and settle out the grits produced this reaction. The slaker bowl has an inlet for both lime and green liquor, an agitator, and a side discharge to the classifier. The classifier has an inlet from the slaker bowl and a conveyor to discharge the grits. It also has an outlet that sends the slurry to the causticizers.

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

I would like to have several employees take multiple courses. How can I set that up?

We're in the process of making bulk course and multiple user purchases easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and contact us with details on who you'd like to assign courses to. We can set up each user's training plan and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

Can I get a free full-length preview of a course to see what this course covers?

While we do our best to offer details on course contents, we don't normally offer full-length previews. But please contact us with more details for a better understanding of what your organizaton needs and how we can help.

Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes. All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of each eLearning course.

How do I log in to take a course that I have already paid for?

You'll receive an email with login details moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course. Just click the login link and enter the user name and password provided.

Do you have courses in different languages?

Yes. While all of our courses are originally produced in English, we develop many courses in a growing number of languages, including Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tamil, and Thai. Available languages are normally displayed in the Course Details section on each course page.
