Cement production is very energy intensive, there is great pressure to optimize grinding to reduce variability and increase throughput whilst reducing over-grinding.
Rheology can provide useful information on the curing of cements.
Analysis of the particle size and shape of cement is necessary to understand, monitor and control:

Centralised automated labs offer the cement industry a highly-efficient way of handling routine analyses and saving labour costs. The Mastersizer 3000 has been designed to meet the demands of automatic operation for particle size measurements.
On-line laser diffraction particle sizing offers the cement industry fast, automated and real-time particle analysis, yielding possible energy savings of up to 20% along with significant product throughput gains.
Across the cement industry, manufacturers are moving away from simple Blaine measurements for product characterization in favour of laser diffraction particle size analysis. Here, the reasons behind this trend are explained.
The paper explores the benefits of Vulcan Materials' decision to upgrade its finishing circuit to use automated process control, through the instalation of an Advanced Process Control system and real time particle size analysis.
Laser diffraction is a fast and effective technique for measuring the particle size of cement, a key indicator of performance. The availability of at- and on-line systems for the process environment is a major advantage of the technology.
