Grinding clinker requires a lot of energy. How easy a particular clinker is to grind ("grindability") is not always easy to predict, but large clusters of belite due to coarse silica in the feed are difficult to grind. Rapid cooling of the clinker is thought to improve grindability due to the presence of microcracks in alite and to the finer ...
