Clinker

Long Son is a provider of Clinker products to the Southern market with years of experience. To replicate that success, Long Son Co., Ltd will provide Clinker products with guaranteed quality meeting the needs of cement production as well as the needs of export to demanding markets where the company is implementing.

Clinker is a product burned and sintered at 1450°C of the limestone – clay and some coefficient control additives such as iron ore, bauxite, sand, …

DSC02448 (Large)

The primary chemicals of blending include 04 major oxides such as CaO (limestone), and SiO2, Fe2O3, Al2O3 (clay), If lacking, it will be supplemented by the coefficient control additives above.

– When being burned to 1450°C, 04 major oxides in blending will react to each other and form 04 major mineral in clinker C3S (3CaO. SiO2); C2S(2Cao.SiO2); C3A (3CaO.Al2O3); C4AF (4CaO. Al2O3. Fe2O3)

These minerals have different crystal structures and this determines the nature of the clinker. The quality of clinker will determine the nature of the cement.

With the advantage of the high-quality materials, Long Son Co., Ltd believes that they will provide the best Clinker meeting the ASTM (America) standard to produce types of cement with perfect quality

  Remark:   C3S to be calculated based on gross CaO content.
  C3S  =  (4.071x %CaO) – (7.60x %SiO2) – (6.718 x Al2O3)- (1.43 x %Fe2O3)-(2.852xSO3)
  C2S  =  (2.867x% SiO2) – (0.7544x % C3S)
  C3A  =  (2.650x %Al2O3)-(1.692x Fe2O3);   C4AF= 3.043 x % Fe2O3
  LSF  =  (100 x % CaO) / (2.8 x %SiO2 + 1.18 x %Al2O3 + 0.65 x % Fe2O3)
