Each builder knows that the manufacture of cement is quite a complex process, which consists of certain subtleties and trifles. As you know, cement is made by mixing two components, it is gypsum and clay. Some manufacturers often use all kinds of additives that would enhance the strength of the crystal lattice.
Now let’s try to understand how the cement in bags is still made. Everything happens in two stages.
At the first stage, the task is to make the basic part of the cement (clinker). What is needed for this? It is necessary to use the connection of a special limestone breed. To do this, connect special limestone breeds. Often they use yellow limestone, which can be found at a depth of about 15 meters, from the ground level. The resulting mixture is burned in the furnace. This product that takes place and is a clinker.
The second stage in the manufacture of cement is crushing the clinker to the extent until the powder is obtained. Gypsum with various mineral additives that enhance strength and reliability is poured into the powder.
In the manufacture of cement, three methods are distinguished – it is wet, dry and mixed. It becomes clear that with a wet method of manufacture, the raw materials are soaked in water before firing. Accordingly, the dry method means that the raw materials are crushed to the state of the powder, and is burnt in the furnaces. And the last method includes the two previous methods at different stages of preparation, and is called mixed.
