Nov 01, 2002· Cement has a high affinity for water. So upon contact with water, the dry cement powder acts like a sponge and globs up. The balls form as these globs roll against the inside drum surface. The key to prevention is to program a material-loading sequence that deposits the cement and the coarse aggregate into the drum at the same time.
