Abstract

Abstract Based on studies carried out with two kiln feed samples used for the production of Portland cement, a method for the direct measurement of the theoretical energy requirement (TER) on a high-temperature calorimeter HT 1500 from the company SETARAM (Lyon, France) is presented. Because the use of this method for the determination of the TER presupposes a complete transformation of the raw materials into the respective reaction products, under the conditions prevailing in the calorimeter, additional studies were carried out to verify to what extent the transformation is eventually completed. Based on the results obtained, the influence of the composition of the kiln feeds on the TER is discussed.
