Abstract

OSORIO, ADRIANA; RESTREPO, GLORIA  and  MARIN, JUAN. CEMENT CLINKER GRINDING: EVALUATION OF MILL SPIN SPEED, RESIDENCE TIME AND GRINDING MEDIA LOAD. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2009, vol.76, n.158, pp.69-77. ISSN 0012-7353.

In this study, the milling of clinker was evaluated by varying the mill speed (24 and 72 RPM), residence time (3 and 5 hours) and grinding media load (30 and 40 %) in a ball mill. The experiment was designed as a three level factorial statistical model. The main objective was to assess the effect of these parameters on cumulative passing percentage (CPP) and surface area, both of which affect the quality of commercial cement. Physico-chemical properties, composition, mineralogy and granulometric distribution were determined using X Ray Fluorescence, Surface Area Analysis and Sieving Granulometric Analysis. Results showed that that CPP through a 325 mesh increases considerably with mill spin speed, that the rate of CPP increase decreases with residence time and that grinding media load changes were not significant. The surface area increased mainly as a function of increases in mill spin speed, while residence time and grinding media load had lesser impacts.
