Cement Manufacturing Process

The cement manufacturing process are


The raw materials that are used to manufacture cement (mainly limestone and clay) are blasted from the quarry.


The raw materials are loaded into a dumper.

Crushing and Transportation:

The raw materials, after crushing, are transported to the plant by conveyor. The plant stores the materials before they are homogenized.

Raw Grinding:

The raw materials are very finely ground in order to produce the raw mix.


The raw mix is preheated before it goes into the kiln, which is heated by a flame that can be as hot as 2000 °C. The raw mix burns at 1500 °C producing clinker which, when it leaves the kiln, is rapidly cooled with air fans. So, the raw mix is burnt to produce clinker: the basic material needed to make cement.


The clinker and the gypsum are very finely ground giving a “pure cement”. Other secondary additives and cementitious materials can also be added to make a blended cement.

Storage, Packing & Dispatch:

The cement is stored in silos before being dispatched either in bulk or in bags to its final destination.
