The new system will help GIC more than double the current capacity of its cement grinding line, as well as saving over 10% in operational energy per tonne.

KHD’s scope includes the engineering and delivery or mechanical and electrical equipment, as well as the supervision and erections of the new COMFLEX SC16-3500.

The core equipment includes an RPS 16-173/180 roller press with ROLCOX system for control and monitoring, a cascade separator (VS 620 static classifier), a high-efficiency separator (SEPMASTER SKS-VC 3500 dynamic classifier), and HKSK 212-275 system fan.
