A comprehensive review of current innovations in the manufacture of portland and blended cement is included in this two-volume set. Starting with a fascinating historical background, the book quickly leads into practical applications and innovations. Drawing from experts from around the world, the book discusses all issues involved with the manufacture of cement. Major sections of the book are devoted to materials and fuels; pyroprocessing and kiln operation; finish milling and material handling; optimization and control; environmental issues; health and safety; analytical techniques; cement types, specifications, and properties; and future trends.
New chapters include: finish grinding using vertical roller mills, oxygen enrichment, inlet gas analysis, and acoustic pyrometry. Sustainability and the environment are covered frequently with new chapters on sustainable cement manufacturing, and carbon capture and carbon sequestration, along with carbon dioxide reduction and control. Health and safety issues also take center stage with new chapters on solid fuel safety and safety issues regarding build-ups in preheater kiln systems.
This is a must have reference all for personnel involved in the cement industry including production, quality assurance, process engineering, energy issues, health and safety, environmental issues, and analytical techniques.
