Gebr. Pfeiffer has announced that it will supply two MVR 5000 C-4 roller mills for the production of various cement types based on clinker, gypsum, granulated blastfurnace slag, and flyash to Sri Lanka. The company has noted that the country is known as the pearl, the drop of luck, floating just off the southeastern coast of India.

The customer, Lanwa Sanstha Cement Corp. (Private) Ltd, belongs to the ONYX Group, mainly operating in Sri Lanka and around the UAE. The contract was signed in February 2019.

In addition to the known technical advantages of the MVR mill, such as actively redundant grinding rollers and a low vibration level that allows cement types to be produced with the highest Blaine values, it was the concept of the compact grinding plant that convinced the customer. Due to tourism being strong in Sri Lanka, especially in the south of the country, extensive environmental guidelines were taken into account when planning the grinding plants. Residual dust and noise are only two of these criteria. Both the building volume and the footprint of the grinding plants to be set up in a closed building are kept to a minimum.

Most of the components of the grinding plants, be they mechanical or electrical, will be supplied by the Indian subsidiary, Gebr. Pfeiffer (India) Pvt Ltd. The core components of the mills, such as the grinding rollers, the tension systems, and the gear units, will come from Europe. As well as the equipment supplies, Gebr. Pfeiffer (India) Pvt Ltd will also provide the entire engineering for the grinding plants and make available staff to support and supervise the construction and commissioning, and assist with the performance test.

The two grinding plants, each coming equipped with an MVR 5000 C-4 and producing about 180 tph of ordinary portland cement to a fineness of 4000 cm2/g acc. to Blaine, will be set up at staggered intervals.

Delivery of the first plant is slated for the end of this year and scheduled to go onstream in 2Q20.
