Storage of Cement


Proper place for cement storage, duration, arrangement, atmospheric moisture content etc. is necessary after the process of manufacturing and before using it in the construction site.Storage of cement should be done with care as due to cement hygroscopic nature, the cement absorbs moisture from the atmosphere very actively and hardens like stone which cannot be used for constructional purpose. 
During storing of cement precautions should be taken against atmospheric moisture content, duration of cement storage, place of storage, arranging cement bags, withdrawal of cement bags.Moisture content is dangerous for cement. Presence of moisture in cement will make cement useless so it should be stored that it cannot expose to the atmosphere. The absorption of moisture from atmosphere will also depends up on the quality of cement. If the cement is finely grained and very good in quality, then it will absorb moisture vigorously. Hence, extra care should be taken for this type of cement and it is better use it in its fresh stage.
Longer the time reduces the strength of cement. It is preferred that the cement should not be stored for more than 3 months. If cement is stored for longer time then strength will decrease and it can be reactivated by vibro grinding methods. Vibro grinding improves fineness quality of long period stored cement and make it fit for the constructional purpose.
The bags of cement should not be stored in open places. Preferably specially designed storage sheds are good for cement storage. They can be used for longer periods.
The cement bags should be arranged one above the other which forms stack of cement bags. This arrangements should be done on wooden platforms.
When the time of using arrives, Withdrawal of cement bags from stacks happens. The cement bags should be taken out in such a way that the bag first placed in storage shed should be withdrawal first.
