In this paper a mathematical model to predict the heat transfer in a lime kiln is presented. We assume the reaction is not well-stirred. We examine the properties of solution under certain conditions. The governing equations are solved analytically using high activation energy asymptotics. Results are presented and potential implications are discussed.Keywords: lime shaft kiln, lime production, calcinations, simulation, shaft furnacesJournal of the Nigerian Association of Mathematical Physics, Volume 19 (November, 2011), pp 91 – 98
