DENSITY-COMPACTIVE ENERGY-CALCIUM CHLORIDE CONTENT RELATIONSHIPS FOR AN IOWA DOLOMITE

THE EFFECTS OF CALCIUM CHLORIDE CONTENT AND THE AMOUNT OF COMPACTIVE EFFORT ON THE DENSITY OF A CRUSHED LIMESTONE WERE DETERMINED BY LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS. THE DATA WERE ANALYZED ON THE BASIS OF ENERGY COST OR SAVINGS DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF CALCIUM CHLORIDE. THE RESULTS INDICATE THAT THE EXPENDITURE OF COMPACTIVE ENERGY TO OBTAIN A GIVEN DENSITY IS DEPENDENT ON THE CALCIUM CHLORIDE CONTENT. THE RESULTS ALSO SHOW THAT FOR A GIVEN DENSITY, AN OPTIMUM CALCIUM CHLORIDE CONTENT EXISTS WHICH WILL PRODUCE THE DENSITY WITH A MINIMUM COMPACTIVE EFFORT. THE OPTIMUM CALCIUM CHLORIDE CONTENT VARIES WITH THE DENSITY. /AUTHOR/
