Wonder Cement has ordered raw meal and coal mills from Germany’s Gebr. Pfeiffer for the expansion of its cement plant in Tehsil Nimbahera, Chittorgarh, India. The mills will supply the new 8500 tpd kiln line at the plant.
Wonder Cement placed the follow-up order with Gebr. Pfeiffer in part due to the positive experiences with existing mills, but also on the advice of Holtec, the Gurgaon-based consulting company.
The order comprises the following:
An MPS 5600 B, which will produce raw meal at a fineness of 1.5% R 212 µm, equipped with a 5600 kW drive. The mill will operate at a rated capacity of 605 tph.
An MPS 3070 BK for grinding petcoke with a capacity of 40 tph and a product fineness of 2% R 90 µm. The mill is equipped with an SLS-BK high efficiency classifier, so is capable of grinding both coal and lignite. Process gases are used for drying. Due to the high abrasiveness of Indian coal, the mill will be equipped with adapted wear protection.
These new mills are the same as the mills already supplied by Gebr. Pfeiffer to Wonder Cement, but with increased capacity based on the customer’s operating experience and adapted to suit the special requirements of the materials.
The engineering team at Gebr. Pfeiffer (India) Pvt. Ltd in Noida will do the planning work for the grinding plants, including general arrangement drawings, specifications of components to be provided by the customer and support during erection and commissioning of the mills.
