Cheney Lime & Cement Company
Plants: We have historically had two plants.
The Landmark plant, our active manufacturing facility, is located in Alabaster, AL
(Shelby County), which is just 25 miles south of Birmingham, AL. Our
Graystone Plant has been decommissioned and is no longer operational. It's
located in Allgood, AL (Blount County), which is about 32 miles northeast of
Birmingham and 2 miles south of Oneonta.|
Process: At the Landmark plant we quarry a large deposit of high calcium limestone and use the processes of calcination and hydration to chemically convert the limestone into lime. The calcination process takes place in our rotary kilns and converts the limestone into quicklime, which is then available for bulk shipment to customers by truck or rail. The hydration process involves taking a portion of the quicklime that has already been produced, and reacting it with enough water to produce a dry hydrated lime, which then becomes available only for bulk shipments to customers by truck. (Note: Hydrated lime is no longer available in 50 lbs bags.)
Markets: Our lime products are shipped to markets throughout the Southeastern United States including such industries and businesses as Pulp and Paper, Waste Treatment, Chemical Mfg, Water Treatment, Phosphate, Sugar, Asphalt, Steel, Power, Chemical Distributors, Tanning, Soil Stabilization, Feed & Seed Distributors, etc.
