Gebr. Pfeiffer to supply vertical roller mills to HeidelbergCement

Published by
World Cement,

Four MPS vertical roller mills installed at HeidelbergCement’s Burglengenfeld plant will be replaced as part of the modernisation of the line, after forty years of successful operation. HeidelbergCement AG’s high level of satisfaction with the Pfeiffer technology is reflected in a recent order for two new Pfeiffer MPS mills, which will be used as substitutes for the old mills.

The company opted for two MPS 4250 B roller mills, each with a 200 t/h capacity. The mills grind the raw material to a fineness of 12% R 90 µm. The drive power of each mill is 2250 kW.

Additionally, Gebr. Pfeiffer will supply the complete equipment for the external material circulation system, as well as the cyclone collectors and mill fans. The supply of the mechanical equipment will be completed by engineering services covering the plant layout, and the integration of the process-related ductwork within the existing plant.

The first raw mill is expected to go on stream at the end of 2016, with the second following the next year.
