Geocache Description:

Podutiška apnenica

Podutik lime kiln

SLO
Podutiška apnenica
Podutiška apnenica je tehnični in kulturni spomenik in največja podutiška znamenitost. Znana podutiška družina Vodnik je v apnenici sedemdeset let kuhala apno za ljubljanske in okoliške gradbenike. Pred vhodom v apnenico je vklesana letnica 1875. Zadnjikrat so jo zakurili leta 1945. Zunanji obok apnenice je pozidan s podutiškim apnencem, notranjost pa je iz kremenovega peščenjaka.
Kako so žgali apno? V apnenico so naložili apnenčasto kamenje (kalcijev karbonat), spodaj so jo kurili z drvmi, na vrhu pa je bila plast ilovice. Kuhanje apna je trajalo najmanj pet dni, pri temperaturi 1000 stopinj Celzija. Tako so pridobili živo apno (kalcijevega oksida). Največ dela so imeli po ljubljanskem potresu leta 1895, ko je apnenica gorela več let. Pokojni profesor geologije Anton Ramovš je leta 1995 poskrbel za temeljito obnovo apnenice.

ENG
Podutik lime kiln
Podutik lime kiln is a technical and cultural monument and the greatest attraction of Podutik. Renowned Podutik family Vodnik manufactured lime seventy years for Ljubljana and surrounding builders. At the entrance to the lime kiln the year 1875 is carved. The last time they lit the kiln was 1945. The external arch is built of Podutik limestone, the interior is made of quartz sandstone.
How the lime was produced? The lime-kiln was loaded with the lime stones (calcium carbonate), below was the burning wood, and on the top was a layer of clay. Burning the lime lasted at least five days at a temperature of 1000 degrees Celsius, when the quicklime (calcium oxide) was produced. Most intense production of the lime was after the Ljubljana earthquake in 1895, when the kiln was burning for several years. In 1995, the late professor of geology Anton Ramovš organized a thorough reconstruction of the kiln.
