Mordovcement reaches record performance

Published by
World Cement,

Part of the Eurocement Group, Mordovcement has successfully connected three methods of cement production at its site: wet, semi-dry (combined), and dry. The holding is actively implementing programmes for the development of the Mordovian enterprise, increasing production efficiency.

According to the results of work in 1Q19, the productivity of the rotary kilns using the wet method increased to 78.6 tph. This was a record since the kiln’s commissioning. The stove index was 8% higher than the design capacity of the equipment. It is thought that this improvement was made possible through the implementation of a set of measures on Mordovcement that aimed at improving operating efficiency and increasing equipment productivity.

At the end of 2018, a pump made by the Finnish company Metso was installed in the clinker burning shop, to supply the furnace with sludge. Its design allows an increase in the flow of materials into the rotary kiln and, accordingly, an increase in its performance. An automation system for controlling pump performance allows a reduction in power consumption.

In addition, the furnace succeeded in reducing the specific fuel consumption for clinker burning by 3%, which has a positive effect on both the environment and the cost of production for the company.
