Abstract:

Sulphate in Portland cement clinker may originate from the clay or calcium sulphate of the raw mix, from the fuel, or from the use of mineralizers. It retention in the clinker is influenced by the kiln atmosphere. Studies in progress on the role of sulphate in the cement making process and the ways in which it may alter either the compound composition of the clinker or the cementing properties of important cement compounds are discussed.
