According to a KHD press release, GIC will integrate at COMFLEX system into its existing ball mills at the Conakry plant, the third installation of the technology in West Africa. The COMFLEX system is a module grinding solution for cement, raw materials and slag.

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.
