Exploration on Feasibility of Preparing Cement Clinker with Artificial Aggregate Concrete
Combining with the utilization of waste, an new idea of using the waste to prepare high-strength artificial aggregates was put forward in this paper. The concrete was also prepared by using these aggregates. The demolished concrete could be recovered and used as cement raw meal to produce new cement clinker. In this study, the feasibility of making cement clinker with this kind of demolished concrete was studied. The concrete aggregates composed of steel slag, blast furnace slag, coal gangue and fly ash were prepared. The concrete was prepared using these aggregates with the water-cement ratio of 0.45, 0.50 and 0.55 respectively. The compressive strength of the concrete in 28 days is 52.8MPa, 46.4.2MPa and 42.6MPa, respectively, higher than that of ordinary concrete. In accordance with the ratio of cement raw meal, the cement clinker is produced by adding appropriate limestone, clay and other correction materials. After hydrated for 3 days, 7 days and 28 days, the cement paste compressive strength is 47.1 MPa, 59.8 MPa, 75.6 MPa, respectively, which reach the requirements of ordinary 42.5 Portland cement.
