Siemens develops new mill control optimisation system

World Cement,

The Siemens Industry Solutions Division has developed Sicement IT MCO (Mill Control Optimisation), an expert system that helps to forecast and then optimise the quality relevant operating parameters in cement mills.

The software has a knowledge-based approach, and uses current plant data to adapt control parameters automatically, so relieving the operator of these tasks. This reduces energy consumption and has a positive effect on availability and profitability.

The system has now been installed for the first time in a ball mill belonging to Suedbayerisches Portland-Zementwerk in Rohrdorf, Germany, where it has replaced the previous optimisation system. The three other ball mills in the plant will be equipped successively with the new Sicement IT MCO expert system.
