Diagram task 1 - Cement-making process
Stages and equipment used in the cement-making process
These diagrams illustrate the process of making cement first, followed by a visual explanation of concrete’s production. While cement is made through a sequence of much more passages, concrecte’s production seems to be easier as it requires less features.
First of all, limestone and clay are the materials used in cement production; these need to be crushed, and once a powder is obtained and mixed, it goes into a rotating heater. Subsequentially to this, the heated powder is smashed thanks to a grinder and cement is obtained. This is usually conserved in bags.
Finally, concrete production can start. However, the process requires four materials instead of the two used in cement production. The suggested proportions are a half of gravel, a quarter of sand and the last quarter divided between 15% of cement and 10% of water. These have to be poured in a rotating concrete mixer.
