Cement Industry Impacts & Management for Limestone and Clinker Storage

Limestone storage:

In cement plant, one of the major component for clinker or cement formation is limestone. Dispatch, storage and processing of limestone can be divided into five main operations: i.e. crushing/grinding, sizing, benefication, storage/loading-out & transport. For cement production, limestone is first reduced in size by processing through a series of crushers and grinders and then limestone storage is done under covered sheds to get rid of cement industry impacts such as environmental Issues, health & safety issues and many more.

Clinker Storage:

After limestone is reduced in size by processing, the stored limestone is then mixed with some mineral aggregates (siliceous, aluminous, and ferrous materials) and water in high temperature kiln to form clinker. After cooling, clinker storage is done under covered sheds or clinker dome. The nodules of cement clinker are then ground to the consistency of face powder to produce powdered cement.
