What Is the Cement Manufacturing Process? (with pictures)

The cement manufacturing process is completed when the cooled clinker is ground once again in a rotating finishing mill. A combination of gypsum and limestone will usually be added in small amounts to the heated cement during this last grinding step, and coloring agents can also be added here. The fineness of the finished particles will vary according to individual preferences, and the cement ...
