Cement Production Process

What Is Cement Production Process?

Cement is a fine powder which sets after a few hours when mixed with water, and then hardens in a few days into a solid, strong material. Cement is mainly used to bind fine sand and coarse aggregates together in concrete. Cement is a hydraulic binder, i.e. it hardens when water is added.

The cement production process consists of drying, grinding and mixing limestone and additives like bauxite and iron ore into a powder known as "raw meal". The raw meal is then heated and burned in an exceedingly pre-heater and kiln and then cooled in an air cooling system to form a semi-finished product, known as a clinker. Clinker (95%) is cooled by air and subsequently ground with gypsum (5%) to form Ordinary Cement. Other forms of cement need increased blending with other raw materials. Blending of clinker with other materials helps impart key characteristics to cement, that eventually govern its end use.

Cement process machine

In cement process, most of the raw materials are extracted from the earth through mining and quarrying and can be divided into the following groups: limestone(calcareous), silica(siliceous), alumina(argilla- ceous), and iron ore(ferriferous). Since a form of calcium carbonate, usually limestone, is the predominant raw material, most process plants are situated near a limestone quarry or receive this material from a source via inexpensive transportation. The process plant must minimize the transportation cost since one third of the limestone is converted to CO2 during the pyroprocessing and is subsequently lost. Quarry operations consist of drilling, blasting, excavating, handling, loading, hauling, crushing, screening, stockpiling, and storing. We provide crushing screening, grinding machines, such as jaw crusher, cone crusher, ball mill, vertical roller mill.
