Cement grinding. The clinker from the pyro-processing area is ground in ball mills or roll press + Ball mill combination or vertical roller mills to form cement. Commonly used separators are in closed circuit grinding are: O –sepa, Sepol and Sepax separators to achieve a finish cement fineness of 3000 – 4000 Blaine surface (cm2/gm).

A raw mill is the equipment used to grind raw materials into "rawmix" during the manufacture of cement. It's mainly used in grinding raw materials and end products in cement plant. Raw mill is made up of feeder part,discharging part,rotating part,transmission part (reducer,samll transmission gear,motor,electric control) etc.

In the cement manufacturing process large fans draw air through the kiln, precalciner, mills and filters to an ex-haust stack. Many smaller fans push the air into the grate cooler to reduce the temperature of the hot clinker leaving the kiln 1. All these airflows have to be adjusted and controlled as atmospheric conditions, process con-
