Gebr. Pfeiffer – along with co-sponsors, Aumund, Haver & Boecker and Fuchs Lubritech – hosted over 100 participants from Southeast Asia and Australasia in Kuala Lumpor, Malaysia, at the latest Pfeiffer Panel. The panel was held at the Grand Hyatt, opposite the Petronas Towers, and focused on the theme: efficient grinding plants for the cement industry.

According to the Kaiserslauten-based mill manufacturer, “the combination of interested guests, exciting presentations, detailed discussions, lively exchanges of experiences, and a pleasant atmosphere led to a successful cement event in all respects.”

Among the topics presented, engineers from Gebr. Pfeiffer discussed the range of sizes available for the company’s MVR vertical mill. Examples given were the MVR 6700 C-6 in Brazil, which according to the company is the largest cement mill in the world, and the relatively small MVR 1800 C-4 in Kenya.

The Kenyan mill is the “core equipment of the world’s first modular grinding plants, better known as ready2grind,” the company said.

In addition to regional Pfeiffer engineers, specialists in the fields of process engineering, order processing and service also attended the event. The panel was hosted by Gebr. Pfeiffer’s Regional Office Malaysia and its manager, Tim Burden.
