The present study is focused on clarifying the influence of waste gypsum (WG) in replacing natural gypsum (NG) in the production of ordinary Portland cement (OPC). WG taken from slip casting moulds in a ceramic factory was formed from the hydration of plaster of paris. Clinker and 3–5 wt% of WG was ground in a laboratory ball mill to produce ...

1.. IntroductionThe most common cement setting retarder used in industry is natural gypsum, which is primarily a dihydrated product of calcium sulfate (CaSO 4 · 2H 2 O). The need for gypsum in cement increases with increasing amount of C 3 A and alkalies in the clinker and the fineness of the cement,, .Gypsum also promotes cement strength at an optimum content …

natural (anhydrite) or industrial (such as FGD gypsum and phosphogypsum). FGD gypsum, a waste material of the desulphurization process of residual gases with limestone in coal burning power plants, seems to be the most promising one with respect to cement setting. On the other hand the influence of different types of superplasticizers (SPLs),

The aim of this paper is to investigate the possible displacement of natural gypsum (CaSO 4 ·2H 2 O) in cement with an alternative setting retarder, such as the industrial by-product derived from flue gas desulfurization process called FGD gypsum. These calcium-sulfate-bearing materials (CSBM), alone or in mixtures, were ground with clinker both in laboratory and …

Gypsum quantitative determination in cements may be done from their thermogravimetric analysis (TG) data, which uses the mass of the water released from its gypsum dehydration during cement analysis, to determinate its content stoichiometrically. Depending on the operational conditions used to mill the gypsum with clinker, its partial dehydration may …

Natural anhydrite may also be added to discourage lumpiness of the gypsum due to its water content. Since the clinker gets hot in the mill due to the heat generated by grinding, gypsum can be partly dehydrated.
