cement ball millIn the most general sense of the word, a cement is a binder, a substance that sets and hardens independently, and can bind other materials together. The word "cement" traces to the Romans, who used the term opus caementicium to describe masonry resembling modern concrete that was made from crushed rock with burnt lime as binder. The volcanic ash and pulverized brick additives that were added to the burnt lime to obtain a hydraulic binder were later referred to as cementum, cimentum, cäment and cement.
Cement used in construction is characterized as hydraulic or non-hydraulic. Hydraulic cements (e.g., Portland cement) harden because of hydration chemical reactions that occur independently of the mixture's water content; they can harden even underwater or when constantly exposed to wet weather. The chemical reaction that results when the anhydrous cement powder is mixed with water produces hydrates that are not water-soluble. Non-hydraulic cements (e.g., lime and gypsum plaster) must be kept dry in order to retain their strength.
Cement Crusher and homogenizing :
In cement production process, cement crusher is very important since most of the raw materials will have to be crushed before being used to process cement, such as limestone, clay, iron ore and coal, etc. Limestone is the largest amount of raw material during cement production. After limestone mining, limestone is generally of large size and high hardness. Therefore the limestone crushing is very important in the whole material crushing. Usually we choose jaw crusher for limestone crushing since jaw crusher is of easy principle, convenient maintainence and low cost. However, if the whole cement mining scale is of large size, we usually choose cone crusher or impact crusher to assit jaw crusher and to be secondary or tertiary cement crusher machine. Also cement conveyor is used to transport these materials to next procedure, such as vibrating cement screen to screen out required fineness. In some production sites, we use a whole mobile crusher to complete the whole cement crushing and screening production since the mobile crusher is equipped with jaw crusher, impact crusher or cone crusher, vibrating feeder,vibrating screen,etc.
In the cement grinding, grinding mill will be used to grind the cement clinker to an appropriate size to increase the size of its hydration, accelerate hydration rate so that it can meet the cement paste setting, hardening requirements. There are many kinds of cement grinding mill, such as ball mill, high pressure suspension grinding mill,coarse powder grinding mill, raymond mill, vertical mill,etc. In the exact production site, we can choose suitable cement grinding mill according to the exact requirement and material information. This procedure is almost the last process of cement production. So cement grinding will directly influence the products quality.
