Gossman Consulting, Inc. provides assistance in cement manufacturing process trouble-shooting and process improvement. Our experienced team of professionals have an intimate understanding of the chemical processes in cement manufacture and can assist in the selection of alternate fuels and feed stocks or in determining a raw materials specification and blending ratio. GCI's wide experience in assisting clients who utilize a number of different clinker production processes has given us a unique understanding of the cement manufacturing process. This understanding and experience, coupled with our strong sampling and analytical skills and our equally strong production management experience, create a combination of skills that can be widely utilized by cement manufacturers wishing to improve their process.
