MANUFACTURING OF CEMENT – A WET PROCESS WITH THE FLOW DIAGRAM In the wet process, 1) The limestone from quarries is first crushed to small size fragments. Then it is mixed with clay or shale in ball or tube mill and ground to form a slurry of a fine consistency with the addition of water.
flow chart description wet process cement in mill. Burning in this operation, the slurry is directly fed into a long inclined steel cylinder called rotary kilnInthis kiln there are different zones shown in fig below cement manufacturing process flow chart i drying zones in the wet process, the drying zone is comparatively larger than dry process in is because the material in slurry .
The wet process of cement manufacturing refers to grinding material into slurry after mixing with water and then feeding them into the wet process kiln for drying and calcination and finally forming clinker. The slurry’s water content is usually between 32%-36%.
The flowsheet diagram of the wet process for manufacturing Portland cement is given in Figure 3.3. The limestone is disintegrated in crushers. The crushed limestone is fed to a tube mill, where the limestone and the clay, introduced as a slurry from a clay mixer, are simultaneously subjected to fine grinding.
Cement is the basic ingredient of construction and the most widely used construction material. It is a very critical ingredient, because only cement has the ability of enhancing viscosity of concrete which in returns provides the better locking of sand and gravels together in a concrete mix.
Wet process. There are two different processes of manufacturing cement. wet process minerals are wet ground (by adding water) to form a slurry and then dried, dry process minerals are dry ground to form a powder like substance.Both the processes are in use and have their own advantages and disadvantages.While in wet process grinding is easier,in dry process there is a saving in fuel costs .
