The cement fineness!!

Hi Ted,
  • In our Plant,  ASTM C150 Cement series were produced. However, the fineness (Blaine) is quite low, it's just below 3200 cm2/g.  AND this type of ASTM C150 cement was limited to: LOI, IR and SO3.  So I have to control raw material: Clinker, Gypsum (SO3) and limstone (LOI) in order that LOI <3.0%, SO3 <2.3%. (Certain Puzzolan is not used because of IR so high > 60%). Therefore We rarely change the raw material composition.

Question: How to increase the fineness of ASTM C150 cement if it was controlled by parameters:     Grinding Pressure (bar), separator (rpm), heat in the vertical mill (hot air from Kiln ), refluxed materials...or improve the equipment : damring heigh so on.

And We use the vertical mill (Loesche mill).

Could you give to me the experiences to control the fineness in cement...

Please help me!

check classifier seal gap ( maintain around 12 mm) . Reduce mill air flow
