This paper investigates the new phases formation in the magnesia-spinel, magnesia-zirconia-cal- cia and magnesia-hercynite refractory products as a result of their reaction with kiln hot meal and cement clinker (both rich in SO3 and Cl ions) at the temperature range 1200°C - 1450?C.

Reactions in the cement kiln - clinkering

As the clinker cools, the main liquid phase crystallizes to form aluminate phase, ferrite and a little belite. Fast cooling of clinker is advantageous - it makes for more hydraulically-reactive silicates and lots of small, intergrown, aluminate and ferrite crystals.

Certification of the phase compositions of the NIST Reference Clinkers often is based upon more than one independent method. The current certificate values were established using an optical microscope examination, and additional microscope data taken from an ASTM C 1356 round robin.

Clinker (cement) - Wikipedia

In the manufacture of Portland cement, clinker occurs as lumps or nodules, usually 3 millimetres (0.12 in) to 25 millimetres (0.98 in) in diameter, produced by sintering (fused together without melting to the point of liquefaction) limestone and aluminosilicate materials such as clay during the cement kiln stage.

Portland cement clinker - overview

Portland cement clinker - overview. Portland cement clinker is a dark grey nodular material made by heating ground limestone and clay at a temperature of about 1400 °C - 1500 °C. The nodules are ground up to a fine powder to produce cement, with a small amount of gypsum added to control the setting properties. This page gives a thumbnail …

Electron optical analyses of the flux phases in Portland cement clinker have frequently shown the presence of three distinct areas within the flux, corresponding to the aluminate phase, the ferrite phase and a phase which appears from x-ray microanalysis to be chemically between the two.

ADVANCES IN QUANTITATIVE XRD ANALYSIS FOR …

A reliable, precise and very reproducible method to quantify the relative phase abundances in Portland cement clinker and Portland cements is to use X-ray diffraction (XRD) in combination with the Rietveld method. This analysis is a powerful method for the determination of quantitative phase amounts in multiple phase mixtures.

Scanning electron microscopy imaging of hydraulic …

While it is important to know the bulk phase composition of a clinker or cement, the surface area of each phase will also affect cement performance, especially at early ages. The surface area of a constituent is influenced by the clinker texture and grinding characteristics, which may be studied by microscopy.

Phase composition analysis of the NIST reference …

Aluminate appears gray and is often found with the ferrite; both of which are sometimes referred to as the interstitial phases. Periclase appears gray and is identified by its equant crystal habit and size. Clinker 8486 (Figure 1) is intermediate in crystal size and exhibits heterogeneous phase distribution relative to the other clinkers.
