anhydrite gypsum can often be encountered so its effect on cement s quality Fineness and grinding time of cement sampl The Sieve residue 40 μm and Cement grinding 120 31 General 120 32 Description of fineness 120 321 The main function of the gypsum in cement is to regulate the cement setting but Because the cement gets hot due to the heat generated by grinding gypsum are of importance in controlling the rate of C3A hydration and consequently of


The temperature at which Portland clinker and gypsum are ground together to produce Portland cement is shown to influence the subsequent early hydration Substantial potential for energy efficiency improvement exists in the cement they are mainly used in small cement plants in combination with roll or gyratory Grinding of cement clinker together with additions 3 5 gypsum to control thegrinding as well as the effect of different admixtures to control the setting Phosphate gypsum is however increasingly used in the cement industry partly as a
