Abstract

Class C flyash, baghouse dust and scrubber sludge have been successfully used for sulphoaluminate belite (SAB) cement preparation by microwave sintering. For proper raw mix proportioning, the modulus of gehlenite (C2AS)1 Conventional cement notation is used here, i.e. C=CaO, S=SiO2, etc. formation (MG) and modulus of calcium sulphosilicate (2C2S·CS̄) formation (MS) were put forward. The results indicated that, when MG and MS were 0.90-1.10, C2AS and 2C2S·CS̄ could be chemically eliminated when microwave-sintered at low temperature; with the 1150°C/10 min sintering condition, microwave-prepared sample had developed into SAB cement clinker with the main phases of C4A3S and β-C2S, while a conventionally fired one had not; with proper gypsum addition, microwave-prepared SAB cement developed strength similar to Type-I cement in 28-day hydration.
