Clarient Germany has purchased the first Loesche mobile grinding plant for the Balikesir facility in Turkey. The plant is completely integrated in seven containers and all electrical connections between the containers are pluggable.

Clarient Germany approached Loesche GmbH, Dusseldorf, with a request for a vertical roller mill for grinding bentonite for its facility in Balikesir, Turkey. It required all components of the grinding system to be mobile as a relocation of the facility was planned for the future.

Loesche’s solution was to integrate the entire plant in seven ISO containers. All grinding plant components from the open loop control to the feed bin, the crusher, the mill with classifier, the hot gas generator, the filter, the fan and the pneumatic product transport are placed in containers. The container grinding plant was designed as a turnkey solution and no solid foundations are required for its erection on solid ground.

The smallest Loesche roller mill, type LM 9.2 D, has a capacity of 1.8 tph and is designed for grinding industrial minerals. The Balikesir facility grinds bentonite, which is ground to a fineness of 30 % R 0.063. With a power transmission capacity of 45 kW, the facility meets all the customer's requirements."This was the first order of its kind for Loesche," remarked Project Manager Matthias Authenrieth, "but we were able to successfully implement the customer's requirements. Our mobile, container grinding plant is expected to be commissioned in May 2016."
