MasterCem LS 3122 - Cement additive engineered for enhancement of cement late strength and reduction of unit grinding energy / increase of cement mill throughput
How does it work?
MasterCem LS 3122 is a liquid, ready-to-use
cement additive designed to enhance cement
performance. In addition to acting as a Grinding Aid
in the milling process and a flow aid in cement
conveyance, MasterCem LS 3122 improves
specific cement properties by the activity of its
chemical components. These act in the modification
of clinker characteristics and in the enhancement of
its hydraulic properties.
Products of the MasterCem LS 3000 series are
specifically designed to increase late strength of
cement. These benefits can be used either for
achieving superior product performance or for
cement optimization while maintaining the original
performance level. Typical late strength
improvement is +5-15% at 28 days vs. plain control.
However, product performance is dependent on
grinding equipment characteristics, process
conditions, raw material properties and cement
type. To best benefit from cement additives, mill
and separator process parameters may need to be

What is it used for?
MasterCem LS 3122 is developed for application in
the cement grinding process in:
- Ball mills (closed and open circuits)
- Vertical mills
- Other cement grinding systems
What are the benefits?
MasterCem LS 3122 offers the following benefits to
- Cost reduction due to lower unit grinding
energy (kWh/t) and optimization of cement
fineness and composition while maintaining
- Capacity extension due to higher mill
throughput and optimized cement recipe.
- Sustainability due to reduced Clinker Factor
and specific CO2 emissions. Gain of carbon
- Product differentiation due to enhanced
product performance and improved cement
properties for the final application.
- Improved cement handling due to faster
cement conveyance through the plant and in the
distribution logistics. Reduction of plant stops
and optimized storage in silos.
