Cement formulae 

Cement = limestone + clay + calcination + grinding

 

Extraction of materials

+The raw materials used for the manufacture of cement, essentially limestone (80%) and clay, are extracted.

 

 

Proportioning

Production of the “raw feed” to obtain the ideal proportioning of materials.
Crushing reduces the materials to tiny fragments of 25 to 40 mm, which are then ground into a fine grey powder (<200 microns), and the powder obtained is stored in silos.

 

Calcination

The feed is heated to produce clinker, the raw material for cement. Heated in the kiln at a temperature of up to 2,500°C, the material increases in temperature to roughly 1,500°C.

 

After burning the clinker is brought down to handling temperature. Several production methods exist; currently, the most widely employed is the dry process.
