low sr slurry
Can someone tell me what are the implications of running a very low raw meal SR (1.8%) from a KILN OPERATION and a CEMENT QUALITY point of view please?
We current run a SR of 2.00% and have no problems.

re low sr slurry
What is the SR of your clinker?
Since clinker SR is inversely related to quantity of liquid phase, a drop in SR would be accompanied by an increase in the amount of liquid phase in the burning zone. But I doubt that change of SR from 2.0 to 1.8 in the raw meal would have a significant effect.
From a quality perspective, the clinker SR determines the potential to form calcium silicates (ie C3S + C2S). So a drop in SR normally equates to a drop in clinker C3S + C2S content. But again the change you are proposing is so small that you may not see any effect on silicate mineral content.
