Synthesis of alinite cement using soda solid waste

Güneş, Aslı
This study is dedicated to give a production route for a kind of low energy cement called alinite cement using the waste material of soda industry as the main raw material. Soda solid waste, clay and minor amount of iron ore were mixed with certain quantities and burned at six different burning temperatures of 1050, 1100, 1150, 1200, 1350, and 1450 ºC. The resultant clinkers were investigated by mineralogical and chemical analysis. Mineralogical analyses were performed by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) technique. XRD analyses revealed the formation of alinite phase in the clinkers. Chemical analyses were performed by X-Ray Fluorescence spectroscopy technique and by wet chemical analysis. Especially, free lime content of the clinkers was searched and an optimum burning temperature was determined. In order to find the compressive strength of the alinite cement, larger amounts of alinite clinker were manufactured in wet rod shape raw mix in a laboratory type of furnace at 1200, 1350 and 1450 ºC. The results have shown that forming alinite phase requires ~6wt % chlorine. Alinite clinker is obtained using soda waste at the temperature range between 1050 and 1200 ºC. However, the free CaO becomes much lower as 0.12 at 1200 ºC. Moreover, a lime saturation factor of 76, which is lower than ordinary Portland clinker is obtained. Satisfactory compressive strength was achieved by gypsum addition.

Kesim, Asli Gunes; Tokyay, Mustafa; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Öztürk, Abdullah (2013-04-01)
A production route of alinite cement clinker using the waste material of the Solvay process of the soda industry as the main raw material was searched. Soda sludge (73.5 wt%), clay (26.3 wt%) and minor amounts of iron ore (0.2 wt%) were mixed to obtain a raw mix that is later burned at nine different burning schemes. Four different burning temperatures (1050, 1100, 1150 and 1200 degrees C) and three different burning durations (60, 90 and 180 min) were applied for clinkerisation. The clinkers obtained were ...
Utilization of soda and beer wastes in cementitious systems
Aleessa Alam, Burhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Department of Cement Engineering (2009)
To maintain the sustainability of cement and concrete production, there is a trend to use wastes in their production. Soda waste, generated by soda ash production process, and beer waste, generated by beer filtration process, are two locally produced wastes in Turkey and many other countries. The nature of these wastes, mostly their fineness, makes them possible to be used in concrete production, especially as a viscosity modifying agent in the self consolidating type of concrete. In this study, the additio...
Effects of separate and intergrinding on some properties of portland composite cements
Soyluoğlu, Serdar; Tokyay, Mustafa; Department of Cement Engineering (2009)
In the production of cement, to increase the cement/clinker ratio and decrease CO2 emission, the most important alternative is to produce mineral admixture incorporated cements (CEM II-III-IV-V) instead of portland cement (CEM I). These cements are usually produced by intergrinding the portland cement clinker and the mineral admixtures. However, the difference between grindabilities of the different components of such cements may cause significant effects on the particle size distribution and many other pro...
Effects of retempering with superplasticizer on properties of prolonged mixed mineral admixture containing concrete a hot weather conditions
Yazan, Kazım; Turanlı, Lutfullah; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
Concrete which is manufactured in a mixing plant to be delivered to construction site in unhardened and plastic stage is called ready-mixed concrete. Because of technical and economical reasons, many mineral and chemical admixtures are used in ready-mixed concrete production. As a result of extra mixing and delayed placing of ready-mixed concrete (especially at hot weather conditions), there can be many problems about concrete, like slump loss. Addition of water for retempering concrete is the usual procedu...
A comparative analysis of the recent cement grinding systems with particle-based influences on cement properties
Fidan, Berkan; Hoşten, Çetin; Kuleli, Ömer; Department of Cement Engineering (2011)
The conventional cement grinding system, the ball mill, has very poor efficiencies in spite of innovative improvements. For this purpose, development of new techniques, which allow proper size reduction and uniform particle size distribution with less specific energy consumptions, have become a necessity. The aim of this study is to make a comparative analysis of the fairly new cement grinding technologies, COMFLEX® Grinding System, Roller Press and HOROMILL®, at the same cement production plant with the sa...
