Litharge Manufacturing Plants
Litharge manufactured on ACS Litharge furnaces is suitable for use in Stabilizers, Batteries, Glass,
Ceramics and specialty chemicals. The feed material to the litharge furnace is the output from the Barton
Litharge manufacturing is a batch process. The Furnace is pre-heated to 575-600°C by a gas/oil fired
burner. Lead Oxide is metered and fed into the furnace. The material is mixed and agitated inside the
furnace. The temperature is maintained between 575-600 °C throughout the reaction. The reaction is
exothermic, hence less fuel is used to maintain the temperature. During the reaction negative draft
is maintained inside the furnace. The air sucked passes through a bag house before being let into the
atmosphere. The negative draft also helps in supplying fresh oxygen to the furnace. This ensures litharge
with less than 0.05% of metallic lead.
Litharge from the furnace is fed to a crusher to break the agglomerates. This crushing takes place at
600 °C. After crushing, the litharge is stored in silos with cooling arrangement.
Temperature in the furnace is sensed by thermocouples and accordingly, and the burner is put ON/OFF.
