Chapter 2 Cement Industry Grinding of raw materials, wet or semiwet kiln system Wet grinding is used only in combination with a wet or semiwet kiln system. The raw material components are ground with added water to form a slurry.
A raw material grinding circuit was modeled using plant data. Samples were collected from around the circuit and, following a crash stop, from inside the mill. The size distributions of the samples were determined down to a few microns. Using the data from inside the mill a modeling approach, based on perfect mixing, was developed.
