Loesche has won the order from Batisöke Söke Cimento Sanayii TAS for a new 500 tph LM 56.4 VRM to grind raw material at a fineness of 12% R 90 µm. The Turkish cement company has ordered the mill for its Söke Cimento Sanayii TAS cement plant, having had success with Loesche mills ordered for a project some 25 years ago. The plant is installing a new kiln line in an existing plant, presenting a particular challenge for the contractors.
The new mill has a 3400 kW gearbox and the scope of supply includes magnetic separators, metal detectors, refined parts for the mill fan and the engineering of the cyclone. The lead time for this vertical roller mill is 10 months.
The new kiln line will also be fitted with an LM28.3 D coal mill and a LM 53.3+3 CS cement mill. The coal mill will grind 40 tph at a fineness of 5% R 90 µm and has a 700 kW gearbox. The LM 53.3+3 CS mill has a capacity of 200 tph CEM 1 with a fineness of 3500 Blaine and a 4700 kW gearbox. The commissioning of the new mills in the Batisöke Söke Cimento Sanayii TAS cement plant is planned in 2Q17.
