Success for TAKRAF’s HPGRs in Turkey

TAKRAF has announced its intention to supply of two High-Pressure Grinding Rolls (HPGRs) to a plant in Turkey.

TAKRAF’s HPGRs were designed with maintenance in mind, aiming for a reduction of downtime. This includes integrated maintenance tools and a focus on the changing of wear parts. In addition, the machines have a load optimised frame structure, ensuring effective operability under varying load conditions.

For the plant in Turkey, each HPGR will have rolls with a diameter of 1800 mm, a width of 1600 mm, and will weigh 50 t. Two variable frequency drives will provide a combined power output of 3000 kW, enabling it to process more than 1000 tph.

Each roll will be protected from wear by weld-hardfacing and a specialised welding machine was recently installed at TAKRAF for this purpose. This machine guarantees constant quality throughout the entire hardfacing process, ensuring hardened rolls can meet the necessary demands.

A joint team based at TAKRAF’s production facilities in Germany will conduct the engineering, with delivery scheduled for 1H19.

“We are pleased to be part of this project, which marks an important milestone in respect of TAKRAF’s ongoing strategy to develop within the comminution equipment market and ensure that our clients are best-served to increase efficiency within their operations,” said Dr Frank Hubrich, CEO of TAKRAF.

TAKRAF is a Tenova Group company, providing integrated solutions to the global mining, bulk material handling, minerals processing, and beneficiation industries.
