Wet process - Cement manufacturing -Flow Diagram


Cement manufacturing is done in the following three major processes:
(a) Mixing
(b) Burning
(c) Grinding

(a) Mixing: Mixing can be done in two ways: (1) dry method and    (2) wet method.
Dry method was used in the early periods in between 1913 to 1982. After 1982 all the cement manufacturing plants in India are equipped with the technologies of Dry process, since this is more energy efficient and environment friendly method of cement manufacturing. In this post I am sharing with you the flow diagram of the wet process of the mixing because it is in the syllabus of the many Diploma courses.
