chemical aggression. templates. to create mosaics and artificial granite. fly ash. The use of blended cements in ready-mix concrete reduces mixing water and bleeding. our oil-well cement is applicable for different depth. It usually forges slowly and is manageable at high temperatures and pressures. and gypsum. and reduces the heat of hydration. calcined clay. or pressure levels. Oil-well Cement Our oil-well cement is a specially designed variety of hydraulic cement produced with gray Portland clinker. and for sculptural casts and other applications where white prevails. Produced in classes from A to H and J. and brick work. Our customers use this type of cement for multiple purposes. We manufacture this type of cement with limestone. including concrete blocks. finishes. silica fume. road surfaces. . inhibits sulfate attack and the alkali-aggregate reaction. Customers use our White Portland Cement in architectural works requiring great brightness and artistic finishes. and other pozzolans. hydrated lime. improves workability and finishing. Masonry or Mortar Masonry or mortar is a Portland cement that we mix with finely ground inert matter (limestone). Blended Cement Blended hydraulic cements are produced by intergrinding or blending Portland cement and supplementary cementitious materials or SCM such as ground granulated blast furnace slag. low iron content kaolin clay.White Portland Cement CEMEX is one of the world's largest producers of White Portland Cement.

The blasting techniques use the latest technology to insure vibration. is usually mined on site while the other minor materials may be mined either on site or in nearby quarries. dust. shale. and noise emissions are kept at a minimum. Another source of raw materials is industrial by-products. The main material. the minor materials (sand. Raw Grinding In the wet process. and iron ore) may or may not be crushed before being stored in separate areas until required. clay.5 meters in diameter to small particles less than a few millimeters in diameter. clay. Depending on size. each raw material is proportioned to meet a desired chemical composition and fed to a rotating ball mill with water. shale. Material is loaded at the blasting face into trucks for transportation to the crushing plant. The raw materials are . Raw Material Preparation Mining of limestone requires the use of drilling and blasting techniques. Blasting produces materials in a wide range of sizes from approximately 1. sand. Through a series of crushers and screens. The use of byproduct materials to replace natural raw materials is a key element in achieving sustainable development. limestone. the limestone is reduced to a size less than 100 mm and stored until required.Cement Process Raw Materials The main raw materials used in the cement manufacturing process are limestone. and iron ore.

0 m to 165. the slurry is fed to a rotary kiln. The rotary kiln is made of steel and lined with special refractory materials to protect it from the high process temperatures. shale. clay. and reacting the calcium oxide with the minor materials (sand. which can be from 3. Process temperatures can reach as high as 1450oC during the clinker making process. The kiln feed is pneumatically blended to insure the chemical composition of the kiln feed is well homogenized and then stored in silos until required.0 m in length.ground to a size where the majority of the materials are less than 75 microns. nodular product known as "clinker" which has the desired hydraulic properties.0 m in diameter and from 120.0 m to 5. In the dry process. This slurry is pumped to blending tanks and homogenized to insure the chemical composition of the slurry is correct. . the slurry is stored in tanks until required. Following the homogenization process. This results in a final black. calcining the limestone to produce free calcium oxide. and iron). Materials exiting the mill are called "slurry" and have flow ability characteristics. The dry materials exiting either type of mill are called "kiln feed". The raw materials are dried with waste process gases and ground to a size where the majority of the materials are less than 75 microns. In the wet process. each raw material is proportioned to meet a desired chemical composition and fed to either a rotating ball mill or vertical roller mill. Pyro processing Whether the process is wet or dry. Basic chemical reactions are: evaporating all moisture. the same chemical reactions take place.

Preheater towers can be equipped with firing as well. oil. Regardless of the process. which can be as high as 150. coke. The clinker cooler recovers heat from the clinker and returns the heat to the pyroprocessing system thus reducing fuel consumption and improving energy efficiency.In the dry process. . kiln feed is fed to a preheater tower. gas or waste fuels. Material from the preheater tower is discharged to a rotary kiln with can have the same diameter as a wet process kiln but the length is much shorter at approximately 45. The rotary kiln discharges the red-hot clinker under the intense flame into a clinker cooler. produced by burning coal.0 m. The preheater tower and rotary kiln are made of steel and lined with special refractory materials to protect it from the high process temperatures. the rotary kiln is fired with an intense flame. Clinker leaving the clinker cooler is at a temperature conducive to being handled on standard conveying equipment.0 meters.

is transported by rail to the Edmonton plant from the Cadomin limestone quarry 220 kilometres west of Edmonton. The cement manufacturing process begins when limestone. Bulk cement can be distributed in bulk by truck. Cement Manufacturing Process Lehigh Inland's manufacturing plant in Edmonton is capable of producing one million metric tonnes of cement per year. the fine powder is heated as it passes through the Pre-Heater Tower into a large kiln. Sand. 3. gypsum. or water depending on the customer's needs.Finish Grinding and Distribution The black. and the amount of process additions added are all varied to develop a desired performance in each of the final cement products. Cement can also be packaged with or without color addition and distributed by truck or rail. rail. Each cement product is stored in an individual bulk silo until needed by the customer. amount of gypsum added. iron and bottom ash are then combined with the limestone and clay in a carefully controlled mixture which is ground into a fine powder in a 2000 hp roller mill.2 metres in . nodular clinker is stored on site in silos or clinker domes until needed for cement production. Next. and other process additions are ground together in ball mills to form the final cement products. 1. 2. The limestone is combined with clay. Clinker. the basic raw material used to make cement. Fineness of the final products. which is over half the length of a football field and 4. ground in a crusher and fed into the additive silos.

the powder is heated to 1500 degrees Celsius. which resembles pellets about the size of marbles. called clinker. The finished cement is ground so fine that it can pass through a sieve that will hold water. The cement manufacturing process consists of many simultaneous and continuous operations using some of the largest moving machinery in manufacturing. In the kiln. The mill is a large revolving cylinder containing 250 tonnes of steel balls that is driven by a 4000 hp motor. .diameter. The clinker is combined with small amounts of gypsum and limestone and finely ground in a finishing mill. 5. This creates a new product. Over 5000 sensors and 50 computers allow the entire operation to be controlled by a single operator from a central control room. 4.
