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.
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.
