Standing Procedure For Liter Weight of Cement Clinker

Procedure For Liter Weight of Clinker

The liter weight of clinker is a good measure of burn-ability by calculating the density of the clinker.  The size of clinker for liter weight is between 5 & 10 mm. A clinker of density approximately 1100 g/ltr is of normal quality, but below than that is not considered a good quality clinker,  and if it is above 1300 g/ltr it can be over burned or over fueled.

How To Find Liter Weight Of Clinker

Collect 20~25 Kilograms of clinker sample from bucket conveyor going to the clinker storage (outlet of clinker crusher).


Sieve all the material through a 10-mm sieve, and throw the material retained upon the 10 mm sieve into the bucket conveyor again.

Sieve the material through 5-mm sieve, which is passed through 10-mm sieve.

Material retained upon 5-mm sieve is collected into a bucket of about 5-Kg capacity, if the collected material is less then about 2-Kg above steps are repeated.

Clinker Liter Weight Calculation

The sieved clinker is then taken to the sample room of laboratory.

Clinker is gently filled in a pre-weighed bucket of one-liter volume.

The surface of material filled in the bucket is flattened with the help of a square iron plate.

The weight of filled bucket is measured by a digital top-loading balance.

Weight of empty bucket is subtracted from the total weight of bucket & clinker.

The difference of weight is the liter weight in Grams/Liter.
