Cement is generally produced by calcining the raw material to produce a sintered "clinker" which is then mixed with a small amount of gypsum and mixed into a finely divided state having a larger surface area to form a finished cement.
Grinding clinker consumes a lot of energy and time, so the use of grinding aids in the industry is a common practice. Grinding aids reduce the energy and time required for grinding by increasing grinding efficiency. Reducing energy consumption can significantly increase the overall cost efficiency of a cement plant, such as reducing plant operating costs, increasing cement production, and / or reducing the size of grinding equipment needed to grind a given amount of cement.
According to the market demand, Horizon Chemical has researched and developed raw materials suitable for cement grinding aids: Triethanolamine, Triisopropanolamine and Diethanolpropanolamine. By adjusting different ratio and production requirements, to reduce energy consumption purposes.
