Making uniformly high-quality cement

The book “Control of Portland Cement Quality” provides a practical approach to the application of statistical methods for quality control in cement manufacturing. A key element of the book is the concept of functional quality control, which sets the stage for a quality program that not only recognizes the relevance of product specifications and quality requirements for clinker and cement, but also the performance characteristics required in the marketplace. Moore’s use of both real and simulated examples representing actual plant conditions provides the reader with specific guidance and direction. The book can be an important reference for plant managers, and corporate and plant quality department personnel. It will also be of interest to cement users and specifiers, and the academic community. More information at:
