Free lime analysis in cement

ARL 9900, cement, free lime, Integrated XRF-XRD, X-ray Fluorescence, X-ray Diffraction Introduction Calcination of cement raw materials in the kiln produces a material called clinker. Free lime (CaO) in clinkers has to be closely monitored to ensure the quality of cement. Excess free lime results in undesirable effects such as volume

    Furthermore, determination of the free-lime content benefits cement quality. An excess of free lime in cement can result in expansion effects. Traditionally, free-lime content is measured using wet chemical methods such as titration, which lasts 35-45 minutes and has a

    Free Lime Analysis in Clinkers Using XRF Spectrometry

    Free lime in the clinker can be quantified with high reliability, sensitivity and excellent stability by using the diffraction system integrated into the ARL 9900. It is also possible to monitor limestone additions to cement using this integrated XRF-XRD instrument, as well as other clinker phases like C

    Free lime is therefore generally analyzed by wet chemical analysis like titration or by an X-ray diffractometer (XRD). This paper introduces the Rigaku simultaneous wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) system Simultix 15 equipped with a free lime diffraction channel, enabling both XRF analysis and free lime quantification by XRD

C3S is much more reactive than C2S and is a more important contributor for 28 day strength. Considering the fact that the cement contains high free lime it

    Nevertheless, the clinkers usually contain some amount of free lime (up to 1-2%) and free calcium sulphate . In white cement, the whiteness index is a very important parameter to control. However, white cement contains a very low amount of iron since it decreases the whiteness, which implies insignificant content of C4AF
