Raw materials Understanding Cement

Cement manufacturing raw materials. If you happen to be a geologist, the raw materials quarry is probably the most interesting part of a cement works, maybe unless you view the clinkering process as igneous rocks in the making. The most common raw rock types used in cement production are: Limestone (supplies the bulk of the lime) Clay, marl or shale (supplies the bulk of the silica, alumina

Raw materials for cement manufacturing

The second important raw material for cement production is clay.The main component of clay is formed by hydrous aluminium silicates.The chemical composition of clay may vary from those close to the pure clay, to that containing a significant amount of admixtures as iron hydroxide, iron sulfide, sand, calcium carbonate, etc. Clay is used as an argillaceous component of raw mix.

CEMENT RAW MATERIALS British Geological Survey

The quality of cement clinker is directly related to the chemistry of the raw materials used. Around 80–90% of raw material for the kiln feed is limestone. Clayey raw material accounts for between 10–15%, although the precise amounts will vary. Magnesium carbonate, which may be present in limestone, is the main undesirable impurity. The level

Cement Raw Materials used in Manufacturing of Cement

Raw materials used for manufacturing of Portland cement are found naturally in the earth’s crust. It is made primarily from calcareous and argillaceous materials and gypsum. Calcareous materials contain limestone or chalk while argillaceous materials comprise an oxide of silica-alumina and iron. Both are found as clay or shale.

Composition of cement

This is a fluxing agent which reduces the melting temperature of the raw materials in the kiln (from 3,000 o F to 2,600 o F). It hydrates rapidly, but does not contribute much to strength of the cement paste. By mixing these compounds appropriately, manufacturers can produce different types of cement to suit several construction environments. References: Sidney Mindess & J. Francis Young (1981

Cement Manufacturing Process Civil Engineering

Raw Material Extraction/Quarry. The raw cement ingredients needed for cement production are limestone (calcium), sand and clay (silicon, aluminum, iron), shale, fly ash, mill scale and bauxite. The ore rocks are quarried and crushed to smaller pieces of about 6 inches. Secondary crushers or hammer mills then reduce them to even smaller size of 3 inches. After that, the ingredients are prepared

Secondary raw materials (materials in the raw mix other than limestone) depend on the purity of the limestone. Some of the materials used are clay, shale, sand, iron ore, bauxite, fly ash, and slag. When a cement kiln is fired by coal, the ash of the coal acts as a secondary raw material. Cement grinding

Alkalies : The most of the alkalies present in raw materials are carried away by the flue gases during heating and the cement contains only a small amount of alkalies.

Cement Plants: Chalk Raw Materials

The softness of chalk made it a natural choice of raw material for the early cement industry, when cement manufacturing technology was primarily limited by lack of effective grinding techniques. The fine grinding of hard materials was initially at best expensive, and at worst impossible. A second, more subtle reason for the early preference for chalk was its chemical dependability, amenable to
