Extraction of Free Lime in Portland Cement and Clinker by Ethylene Glycol


Free lime in portland cement and clinker has been determined by extraction with hot ethylene glycol. Our determinations show that times of 5–10 minutes and temperatures of 80–100°C are adequate. This method is as accurate as the ASTM method and has the distinct advantage of simplicity and rapidity.
