Industrial clinker used for the production of ASTM C150 Type I cement 4 natural pozzolan meeting the requirements of ASTM C618 Class N 19 and gypsum materials were employed Their ratio in the cement produced was maintained at 86 5 8 5 and 5 respectively The materials chemical composition and PSD are presented in Table 1.
Two commercially available GAs were tested in this study The glycol based GA is composed by DEG and PG chemicals it is referred to as grinding aid and pack set inhibitor in the cement industry Its active chemicals determined by Karl Fischer method specific gravity and pH were 64 1 08 and 7 8 respectively The second GA is amine based it is commonly used as grinding aid and strength enhancer in the cement industry Its main components include TIPA and TEA the active chemicals specific gravity and pH were 60 1 09 and 7 2 respectively.
The increase in CL due to GA additions is a common phenomenon in the cement grinding industry mostly attributed to a decrease in MRT and improved cement flowability 11 18 26 In other words the use of GA makes coarser the product that leaves the mill B1 thereby requiring increased number of passages through the system to reach the targeted fineness level After reaching stable mill conditions the grinding tests were pursued for 4 additional hours whereby samples of cement were taken at regular time intervals The products temperature leaving the mill B1 hovered around 102 4C.
Table 4 summarizes the properties of control cement and those containing GAs that resulted from industrial grinding after reaching stable conditions the Ec values are also given It is to be noted that the data reported in Table 4 are averages of 3 to 4 measurements collected after reaching stable mill conditions The coefficient of variation COV for each measurement determined as the ratio between standard deviation and mean values multiplied by 100 is given.
The setting time that resulted from cement containing amine based GA was relatively lower than the one obtained using glycol GA i e 245 versus 266min resp This can be attributed to the TIPA existing in the former GA those molecules are known by their capacity to promote cement hydration reactions with consequently reduced setting times 2 6 7 The resulting 1 day compressive strength slightly increased to 14 83MPa.
Two other grinding tests were then realized by sprinkling the preselected glycol and amine based GA concentrations of 530 or 460gton onto the 6kg feed materials Grinding stopped when the cement mixtures reached Blaine fineness equivalent to the control mix The temperature of cement obtained right after the end of grinding hovered around 32 to 36C It is to be noted that each test was repeated twice to evaluate the COV of various measurements as summarized in Table 5.
As expected the addition of GA led to reduced Ec given the decrease in cement agglomeration that is from 43 27kWton for the control mix to 39 23 and 40 33kWhton for those containing glycol and amine based GA respectively.
Compared to the control mix the incorporation of GA did not remarkably alter water demand and setting time those measurements varied within 27 6 0 15 and 210 15min respectively Table 5 Nevertheless remarkable increase in early strength occurred when both GAs were used i e 14 5MPa for the control mortar compared to 16 1 and 16 4MPa for glycol and amine GA resp The increase in 1 day compression could mostly be attributed to an increase in the amount of fine cement particles as a consequence of GA additions 6 7.
This research project was initiated following an industrial test undertaken to validate the effect of glycol and amine based GAs on mill performance and cement properties It mainly seeks to evaluate the scale effect by comparing the results obtained from the closed circuit tube mill operating at around 90tonhr to those determined using a 50 liter laboratory mill Grinding was realized for fixed Blaine fineness of 3850 75cm2g.
