Ukrainian cement industry. Results of operations in the 1st half of 2014

The quantity of clinker and cement produced in January-June 2014 is presented as well as the consumption of cement by the regions of Ukraine is given in tables.

An innovative system to improve material handling and operator safety

Currently, at many cement factories there are problems with material spillage from the conveyor belts and, respectively, with immense dust emissions into the air. To prevent this, and to ensure safe conditions for the operators during maintenance of conveyor belts, Fren...

A ropeway system of transporting raw materials for cement plant in Sudan

Often, local geography such as mountainous terrain, overflowing rivers or heavily populated areas interferes with smooth material flow from the quarry to the place of its processing by the shortest route. Long detours may significantly affect the speed and cost of deliv...

Industrial practice of energy-saving cement production of extremely coarse-ground raw meal

Extremely coarse-ground raw cement meal can increase the amount of the melt and reduce the melting temperature to 1100°C. The higher reactivity of the extremely coarse-ground raw meal can increase its saturation factor and the silicate module. The thermal treatment of t...

Cement particle size analysis

The measurement and control of particle size distribution in cement are very important for both the desired product composition and controlling production costs. Conventional methods, such as measuring the particle size distribution by sieving and determining fineness a...
