Clinker, also known as kiln pulp, is a dark, gray grain that is three to 25 or 30 millimeters in diameter. Clinker is produced by intense heat to clay and limestone up to 1500 ° C. The produced clinker can be stored in a dry place for a long time without changing its properties. In areas where raw cement raw materials are scarce and not readily available, clinker is used in the cement plant.
In wet method cement production, clinker is mixed in water and then ground, but in dry cement production method, clinker and other raw materials are mixed and ground dry.
Regarding the difference between cement and clinker, it can be said that cement is a powdery material and is used in construction, but clinker is used in the production of cement. Clinker is obtained during the cement production process inside the kiln. Clinker is formed when the raw materials inside the furnace are subjected to extreme heat and reach the highest possible temperature.
The percentage of clinker in cement and the types of clinker produced are very diverse. Types of cement clinker include sulfate resistant clinker, white clinker, low alkali clinker, low heat clinker and also calcium sulfoaluminate transite. Clinker mineralogy can be done with the help of two methods of mineral and chemical analysis. In the first method, mineral analysis, lithological microscopy and X-ray diffraction are used, and in the second method, chemical analysis, X-ray fluorescence spectrometer is used.

In the production of cement, clinker that is combined with clay and other additives and is in the form of gray balls is used. In the cements that are produced, special materials such as gypsum are used in clinker, which increases the compressive strength of cement.
