French engineering company, Fives Group, has installed the first FCB B-mill for the cement grinding plant at the 6000 tpd clinker production line in Chlef, Algeria. The mill installation follows the erection of the 82 m long, 5.1 m dia. FCB kiln at the site in February.
The installation of the first of three cement grinding mills began in early April and required a heavy lifting rail-mounted crane system. The mill’s shell measures 4.8 m x 17.8 m, while the gearbox weighs in at 98.5 t.
The second and third grinding mills will be installed soon, the company said, completing the cement grinding plant. The finished plant will feature three 160 tph FCB B-mills with their associated FCB TSV 4500 HF classifiers.
