  • Patent number: 10352885
    Abstract: An apparatus for producing and analyzing sample materials may comprise a milling device for milling material components, a first metering device for metering a material component into the milling device, a second metering device for metering an activator liquid into the milled material component, a homogenization device for homogenizing the material components and the activator liquid to produce a sample material, a control device that is connected to the milling device and is configured to vary a parameter characteristic for milling intensity of the milling device so that particle size of the material components is altered, and a measuring device for determining a reactivity of the sample material. The present disclosure further concerns a process for producing and analyzing a plurality of sample materials. The process may involve varying at least one parameter characteristic for milling intensity for each sample material produced.

  • Patent number: 10294152
    Abstract: Methods for producing pozzolanic or latent hydraulic cement clinker substitutes may involve calcining clay with a fuel comprising a mineral substance at temperatures in the range from 500 to 1250° C., preferably from 550 to 1150° C., most preferably from 700 to 900° C. A resulting mixture of mineral substance from the fuel and the calcined clay forms a pozzolanic or latent hydraulic cement clinker substitute, in which a fraction of the mineral substance incorporated into the pozzolanic or latent hydraulic cement clinker substitute by the fuel is 1-60% by weight.

  • Patent number: 7976627
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and to apparatus for the production of a hydraulic binding agent from a plurality of raw material components (12a to 12e), wherein the raw material components are ground to a raw meal, the raw meal is burned to clinker in a combustion plant (2) and finally the clinker is ground together with further inter-grinding materials. Moreover, the mineralogical and/or chemical composition of the raw meal and/or the clinker is analyzed, at least two separate raw meal silos/clinker silos (4a to 4h, 5a to 5g) are provided in each case for the raw meal and/or the clinker and are filled with raw meal/clinker of different mineralogical and/or chemical composition. Furthermore the composition of the raw meal to be burned and/or of the clinker to be ground is fixed by controlled extraction as a function of the analysed composition of the raw meal/clinker from one or a plurality of raw meal silos/clinker silos.
