World Cement,

Askari Cement Ltd has ordered three MVR vertical roller mills from Gebr. Pfeiffer for its plant in Nizampur.

Askari Cement is one of the leading cement producers in Pakistan, a company that produces cement that is used for the construction of major projects in the country, including dams, bridges, highways as well as commercial and industrial complexes, but of course also for housing projects.

By equipping the cement plant in Nizampur with the latest vertical mill technology, the company is contributing to the development of Pakistan's infrastructure and thus to the country's growth. In addition to the application of Askari products in the construction projects described above, the company also exports its cements to South Africa, India and Afghanistan.

In detail, the three mills are two MVR 5000 C-4 cement mills, which together grind 360 tph of cement to a fineness of 3250 cm²/g (according to Blaine), and one MVR 5000 R-4 raw meal mill for grinding 520 tph of cement raw material to a fineness of 12% R 90 µm.

An SLS V high-efficiency classifier will be installed on all three mills.

The order is being handled by the Chinese general contractor Hefei Cement Research & Design Institute.

Commissioning is scheduled for the second half of 2022.

An MVR mill of the same size is also producing in Uzbekistan.
