Forschungsergebnisse: Puzzolane aus Calcinierung kalkhaltiger und dotierter Tone – Untersuchungen zu deren Hydratationsverhalten im Zement

Available in German

Um die puzzolanische Reaktion der bei verschiedenen Temperaturen calcinierten Werkstone ohne den Einfluss des Zementklinkers zu untersuchen, wurden vier verschiedene Tonbrände (W1-800, W2-1300, W3-800 und W3-1200) ausgewählt und im Gemisch mit Calciumhydroxid und Calciumcarbonat hydratisiert.

Research projects


Current

Performance of ternary cements with Portland cement clinker, granulated blast furnace slag and calcined clay as the main constituents

The aim of the research project is therefore the detailed investigation of the performance, durability and hydration behaviour of ternary cements with blastfurnace slag and calcined clay as main constituents (KSQ cements).

Current

Environmentally friendly railway sleepers with calcium sulfoaluminate cements

The research project will investigate whether the technical requirements for railway sleepers with CSA cements can be realised. Also, some basic links to standards (e.g. modulus of elasticity, creep and shrinkage in accordance with EC2) must be checked and ensured.

Current

Effects of pre-hydration on the performance of cements and the influence of different clinker properties

The research project has two objectives. The first is to investigate whether certain chemical / mineralogical properties can make clinker more robust against pre-hydration effects. Secondly, it will be investigated which measures can be taken to counteract possible negative effects, in particular by adjusting the sulphate carrier composition.

Seminar

Plant Maintenance and Refractories Course

Our Plant Maintenance and Refractories Course covers all topics concerning the high efficiency and availability of a cement plant’s key machinery. Measurement of rotary kilns and ball mills as well as independent expertise in mechanical maintenance and inspections are also among the major aspects. In addition, we provide an extensive know-how transfer on high quality refractory kiln brick lining materials and installation including their relation to mechanical failure.

Congress

International­ VDZ Congress 2018

Climate protection and digitisation are key challenges for the cement industry: More than 600 representatives from the international cement industry and associated suppliers, as well as from scientific and research institutes around the world, gathered at the International VDZ Congress 2018 in Duesseldorf at the end of September. Steeped in tradition, the VDZ Congress is one of the world's most important events in the industry. The 40 talks held at this year's congress focused on particularly pressing topics such as climate protection and digitisation. The participants also discussed current technical challenges and the general situation with regard to cement production. A further highlight was an evening ceremony at which the winners of the VDZ Industrial Safety Prize 2017 received their awards.
