Understanding Limestone in Cement Concrete

2015-3-26  The change is that the specification adds up to 5% limestone. The biggest difference in production is that the limestone is added to the clinker blend before grinding. Because the limestone is softer than the clinker it will grind preferentially, resulting in a cement with a better particle size distribution with less energy.

Portland Limestone Cement Part I - Preparation of Cements

2014-9-25  According to TS EN 197-1 standard, the CaCO3 ratio of limestone employed in the production of blended cement should be at least 75%. Clay content of limestone should not exceed 1.2%. Limestone may contain organic carbon, depending on the impurities of the raw materials. The total organic carbon (TOC) content of limestone should be determined according to TS EN 13639 standard. High organic carbon contents may cause incompatibilities and problems when air entraining admixtures employed in concrete production. Limestone with an organic carbon content higher than 0.5% can not be used as cement additive. According to TS EN 197-1, limestone blended cements

Geochemical assessment of a siliceous limestone sample

2011-9-25  Abstract A low grade siliceous limestone sample from the Jayantipuram mine of Andhra Pradesh, India, has been investigated for its suitability for cement making. Petrological as well as X-ray diffraction pattern studies indicated that the limestone sample was crystalline and dominantly composed of calcite and quartz. They are simple in mineralogy, and yet they have variable silica and lime contents. Geochemical analysis results of twenty five hand picked samples indicated that the limestone from the Jayanti-puram mine shows a wide range of variations in LOI (29.94% to 40.64%), SiO2 (6.14% to 27.18%), CaO (37.93% to 50.78%), Al2O3 (0.49% to 2.27%) and Fe2O3 (0.28% to 2.4%). MgO, K2O, Na2O, TiO2 and MnO2 are present in traces. CaO with LOI shows a strong positive correlation where as CaO with SiO2 shows a strong negative correlation because of mineralogical factors. The chemical composition of the limestone
