Cement Production - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

The clinker is a kiln outlet, which is the main cement ingredient The limestone is used only for the cement production, for certain cement types, in the cement mill as a mineral component. The raw materials from the depo centre are transported to the vertical roller mill, where raw meal is produced. The storage of this raw meal consists of 2 silos.

Example for calculating the dust return correction

On the output side stand clinker production (P) and bypass dust leaving the kiln system. Since the LOI (Loss on Ignition) of the raw meal and the additional raw materials is also a mass output of the system, a correction of these material masses for their LOI has to be conducted as well as for potentially incomplete calcination of bypass dust.

Clinker quality depends on raw material composition.

Portland cement is the most common type of cement in the world. It is used primarily to make concrete, mortar, and grout. Portland cement manufacturing begins with mining and then grinding raw materials that include limestone and clay, to a fine powder, called raw meal, which is then heated to a sintering temperature as high as 1450 °C in a cement kiln.

Raw materials - Understanding Cement

Technically, a cement producer can have almost complete control over clinker composition by blending raw materials of different compositions to produce the desired result. In practice, however, clinker composition is largely determined by the compositions of the locally-available raw materials which make up the bulk of the raw meal.
