The fineness of cement is a property that must be carefully controlled during the manufacturing process. The total specific surface of the cement represents the surface area available for hydration. Various methods are in use to measure the specific surface of cements. For most purposes air permeability methods produce accurate, repeatable results.

Open the Blaine Fineness Apparatus page

The Blaine Fineness Apparatus is used in measuring the fineness of Portland cement in accordance with ASTM and AASHTO standards. The fineness is measured in terms of the specific area of cement expressed as total surface area in square centimeters per gram.

The apparatus consists of a U-tube glass manometer, a ground joint with stainless steel test cell, a stop cock and a rubber bulb.The Blaine Fineness Apparatus is used in measuring the fineness of Portland cement in accordance with ASTM and AASHTO standards.
