Clinkerization - Cement Plant Optimization

Kiln feed rate fluctuations and composition inconsistency makes difficult to control free lime in clinker. Clinker litre weight (grams/litre): A convenient supplement for free lime measurement is the more rapid determination of litre weight of clinker sample from the cooler discharge to approximately +6/-12 mm and weighing a standard 1 litre volume. Normal range of litre-weight is 1100-1300 g/L. Low litre weight means high free lime and dusty clinker in general (for higher AM free lime …
