The paper discusses the measurement of the sintering rate of CaO in a nitrogen atmosphere at temperatures of 700-1100 C. CaO prepared from ultrapure CaCO3 was compared with an impure CaO derived from limestone. Both materials yielded an initial surface area of 104 sq m/g. The rate of surface reduction was independent of particle size between 2 and 20 micrometers, but strongly dependent on temperature and impurities. A model was used to correlate the kinetics of surface reduction and identify lattice diffusion as the mechanisms of solid transport. Impurities increased the rate of sintering at a given temperature and reduced the activation energy. The porosity declined logarithmically with time during the intermediate stage of sintering.
