Re: Regarding Slag Grinding
The best would be to take part in the CemNet Training Grinding and Milling course. The desired proportions of slag and OPC depend on the grade of cement being produced and its proposed application rather than the other way around. Slag is harder to grind than clinker because it is. It is inherent in its composition and having been quench cooled.The pros of intergrinding are that only 1 mil and silo is required. With separate grinding you need an extra mill and storage, but you can rind the individual components to their required fineness.
