In the diagram above of a precalciner kiln, raw meal passes down the preheater tower while hot gases rise up, heating the raw meal At 'A,' the raw meal largely decarbonates; at 'B,' the temperature is 1000 C - 1200 C and intermediate compounds are forming and at 'C,' the burning zone, clinker nodules and the final clinker minerals form...
HYDRATION DISCOLORATION In this illustration the variation in color was caused by pressure during placing A standard hardboard was used as the form lining; the concrete pressure caused more water to be absorbed by the lining at the base, where pressure was greatest, than at the top SEGREGATION DISCOLORATION Variation in shade is...

At a water-cement ratio of 050, there is about 300 pounds of water and 600 pounds of cement in a cubic yard As the concrete begins to set, some of that water (about half) combines with the portland cement (through hydration) and some rises to the surface as bleed water where it evaporat The rest is in the pores of the concrete...
