CRUSHING AND TRANSPORTATION : The raw materials. The plant stores the materials before they are homogenized. BLASTING 2. Next . TRANSPORT crushing conveyor storage at the plant 3. 3. CRUSHING & TRANSPORTATION 1. are transported to the plant by conveyor. BLASTING : The raw materials that are used to manufacture cement (mainly limestone and clay) are blasted from the quarry. TRANSPORT : The raw materials are loaded into a dumper. after crushing.THE CEMENT MANUFACTURING PROCESS quarry dumper loader Quarry face 1. 2.

RAW GRINDING kiln cooling clinker 2. when it leaves the kiln. The raw mix burns at 1500 °C producing clinker which. the raw mix is burnt to produce clinker : the basic material needed to make cement. BURNING : The raw mix is preheated before it goes into the kiln. BURNING 1.THE CEMENT MANUFACTURING PROCESS Raw grinding and burning storage at the plant conveyor Raw mill Raw mix preheating 1. 2. Back Next . So. is rapidly cooled with air fans. RAW GRINDING : The raw materials are very finely ground in order to produce the raw mix. which is heated by a flame that can be as hot as 2000 °C.

STORAGE.THE CEMENT MANUFACTURING PROCESS Grinding. packing. GRINDING silos dispatch bags 2. PACKING. DISPATCH 1. DISPATCH :The cement is stored in silos before being dispatched either in bulk or in bags to its final destination. dispatch Gypsum and the secondary additives are added to the clinker. PACKING. storage. Other secondary additives and cementitious materials can also be added to make a blended cement.GRINDING : The clinker and the gypsum are very finely ground giving a “pure cement”.
