Cement is a bonding agent for materials. It is a finely powdered substance, which possesses strong adhesive power when combined with water. The most common and widely used in construction is the Portland cement. This cement is produced by burning a homogenized mixture of clay and limestone, resulting in intermediate product called clinker. This inturn is mixed with gypsum in a specified proportion, and ground into fine powder to form the final product called Portland cement. This product is very useful in construction and engineering works of housing, buildings, bridges and cement concrete roads.

cement plant equipment and processing
The major raw materials required for the production of cement are limestone, clay, sandstone, gypsum and pumice. These raw materials are proportionally mixed at different stages of the production process in order to produce an intermediate product called clinker and final product of cement.
Quarrying, crushing and transportation of limestone, sandstone and clay is carried at the site of the raw materials. These materials are, then, stored in their respective storage yards, and are fed to proportioning equipment (bunkers and weigh scales). The proportioned materials are transported by a belt conveyor and fed to raw grinding mill. The output of the mill called raw mix or raw meal - is fed into homogenizing silos where high pressure air mixes the raw mix to a high degree of homogeneity.
