Effect of Grinding Methods on the Performance of Ground Fly Ash
In this study, coarse fly ash was ground with laboratory ball mill, vibration mill and jet mill respectively. The powder characteristic of ground fly ash was tested by laser particle size analyzer and scanning electron microscope. And the performance of cement containing different ground fly ash was also studied. It was observed that the characteristic value of fly ash ground by ball mill, vibration mill and jet mill was 13.543 μm, 13.403 μm and 17.344 μm, respectively, when average particle size was about 25μm. And the uniformity coefficient of fly ash ground by ball mill, vibration mill, and jet mill was 1.26, 1.24 and 1.38, respectively. Specially, the mortar strength was increased when 10 to 20 percent of ground fly ash was added. And the highest fluidity of mortar was obtained when 30 percent of fly ash ground by jet mill was added.
