The annual cement consumption in the world is around 1.7 billion tonnes and is increasing by 1% every year [1]. Cement industries consume 5% of the total industrial energy utilised in the world [2]. A total of 40% of the total energy consumption of a cement plant is used in clinker grinding in a ball mill to produce the final cement product [3].

Cement In the most general sense of the word, a cement is a binder, a substance that sets and hardens independently, and can bind other materials together. Cement used in construction is characterized as hydraulic or non-hydraulic. Hydraulic cements (e.g., Portland cement) harden because of hydration, chemical reactions

A ball mill also known as pebble mill or tumbling mill is a milling machine that consists of a hallow cylinder containing balls; mounted on a metallic frame such that it can be rotated along its longitudinal axis. The balls which could be of different diameter occupy 30 – 50 % of the mill volume and its size depends on the feed and mill size.

mill for cement The mill shell is divided by a diaphragm. Coarse grinding using big balls of up to 100 mm in diameter takes place in the first com- partment. The peripheral wear lining is designed as a lifting or activator plate lining which, with the large balls, achieves a high energy input for comminution. The transfer diaphragm allows
