Cement is a building material which has a cohesive and adhesive properties in The process of manufacture of cement consists of grinding the raw materials. Two basic types of clinker production processes exist, depending on the . CEMENT PRODUCTION PROCESSES– The two Oxide Manufacturing industries, May ,; ftp://osakeya.info 2.
There are more than twenty types of cement used to make various specialty concrete, however the most common is Portland cement.
In this process, the chemical bonds of the raw materials are broken down and then they are recombined into new compounds. The result is called clinker, which are rounded nodules between 1mm and 25mm across.
The clinker is ground to a fine powder in a cement mill and mixed with gypsum to create cement. The powdered cement is then mixed with water and aggregates to form concrete that is used in construction. Clinker quality depends on raw material composition, which has to be closely monitored to ensure the quality of the cement. Raw mix is stored in a pre-homogenization pile after grinding raw mix to fine powder.
Pre-heater chamber consists of series of vertical cyclone from where the raw material passes before facing the kiln.
Pre-heating chamber utilizes the emitting hot gases from kiln. Pre-heating of the material saves the energy and make plant environmental friendly.
This temperature begins a chemical reaction so called decarbonation. In this reaction material like limestone releases the carbon dioxide.
High temperature of kiln makes slurry of the material. Rotary kiln The series of chemical reactions between calcium and silicon dioxide compounds form the primary constituents of cement i.
Kiln is heating up from the exit side by the use of natural gas and coal. When material reaches the lower part of the kiln, it forms the shape of clinker. Clinker released the absorb heat and cool down to lower temperature.
Released heat by clinker is reused by recirculating it back to the kiln. This too saves energy.
The cement by this process can be prepared by using the following operations:- Mixing of raw materials Burning and Grinding Mixing of Raw Materials : The raw materials i. Drying: The crushed materials are dried by heating at a sufficiently high temperature. It may be done in drying kilns.
Reduction of size: The drying materials are then grind by using ball mills and tube mills to reduce the size of materials to find powder. Mixing in correct proportion : The finely dried materials are mixed in exact proportions.
The mixing may be done either mechanically or by pneumatic methods e. Burning and Grinding: These operations are same as for wet process. Except for the mixing of raw materials. In the dry process, the raw materials mixed, fined and then fed into kiln whereas in the wet process, the raw materials are crushed separately and then directly mixed in correct proportion in the presence of water to make a fine thin paste known as Slurry.
