Abstract: Preheater fines are defined as the material produced in a cement kiln preheater incident to the manufacture of Portland cement. Because of its ability to control swelling of potentially expansive soils and increase soil strength, preheater fines can be used as a substitute for lime for soil stabilization. As of December, 1980, the average bid price in Kansas per ton of lime and preheater fines can conveniently be accomplished in the form of slurry. Preheater fines have recently been used for subgrade stabilization in at least one highway project in Kansas.
