Cement - composition, structure and fineness – we are stronger together! (Asian timezone)

Producing good cement is a science. The strength of cement can be greatly influenced by the shape as well as coarseness of the cement particles. Making the environmentally friendly switch to alternative fuels can also affect your kiln control. Learn how you can combine analytical methods for optimal plant operations and better quality cement production through the analysis of:

•    Cement particle size (from as small as 0.01µm and shape using laser diffraction
•    Phase quantification of clinker and cement in as fast as 5 minutes using X-ray diffraction
•    High throughput monitoring up to 200 samples of the elemental analysis using X-ray fluorescence

R<b>Harald van Weeren</b>, Product Manager XRD / Segment Manager Building Materials - PANalytical B.V. the Netherlands. Harald was born in Hoorn, The Netherlands, in 1975. He started his studies applied physics at the University of Twente, The Netherlands in 1996. In 2002 he finalized his studies with a Master’s Thesis on Nb<sub>3</sub>Sn superconductors. In that same year he started his PhD research on MgB<sub>2</sub> superconductors, where he focused on the material-science- as well as on the applicative aspects of this type of superconductor. Just after finalizing his PhD thesis in 2007 he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on cryogenic micro-coolers for space applications at the University of Twente. In 2008 he joined PANalytical B.V., Almelo, the Netherlands as product specialist non-ambient X-ray diffraction. Currently he is product manager, focusing on X-ray diffraction for process control and market segment manager for the building materials industry.
