Vision for the Future

Greer Lime Company has deep roots in the community, but a vision for the future.  We have implemented new ideas and new equipment into our operation to meet our customer’s needs.

Because of the need to supply high quality rock dust to coal mine operators, we installed a Bradley Hercules grinding mill.  We’ve also installed a state-of-the-art robotic packaging system that allows us to deliver high quality lime in 50 lbs bags as well as 2000-3000 lbs Super Sacks.  In addition, we have automatic samplers within the system to ensure that our products meet or exceed the specifications set by MSHA.

– Chuck Bolyard, Vice President of Sales

Rotary Kilns

Through our Operating Control System, we have computerized control of our kilns; analyzing the kiln dynamics and making responses to the firing rate based on hourly quality tests. Two rotary kilns are operated and controlled by the latest technologies. Computer-generated statistics are monitored by plant management and kiln operators perform hourly carbon/sulfur analysis on production to ensure that lime quality meets customer specifications.
