In this paper, a modified formulation of class G cement for manufacturing and production has been proposed. Since the produced industry cements have no proper rheological properties, thickening time, and compressive strength, a new formulation has been proposed on the laboratory scale. The clinker was classified into a wide range of particle sizes and the final cement was prepared by mixing them with gypsum. The designed cement is non-uniform and coarser than conventional cements and 50 percent of particles are in the range of 3-30 µm, which shows a 20-30% decrease in the aforementioned range as compared to standard cements.
Although the designed cement has very good rheological properties, thickening time, and lesser water usage about 10% which causes a higher 24-hour compressive strength, there is a lower early compressive strength when compared to standard cements. Hence the production system was changed from ball mill and sieves to production by ball mill alone and homogenous cement with the same specific surface area was produced. In addition to having all the desired properties, by a 10% decrease of water usage in the cement system, the early compressive strength was improved by 21% compared to standard cements based on quality control results. Moreover, this production system can completely be implemented at the production plants.
