Loesche begins installation of raw mill in Turkey

World Cement,

Loesche has begun installing an LM 45.4 mill at the Bastas Baskent Cimento plant in Elmadag, Turkey. The mill was ordered by Vicat Service Technique Ciment in May 2014, with Loesche supplying the mill within a 10 month delivery period.

Cement plant Bastas Baskent Cimento Sanayii ve Ticaret A.S. – Elmadag, Turkey.

The mill will grind cement raw meal at a rate of 260 tph to a product fineness of 16% R 90 µm. The LM 45.4 mill has an installed drive power of 2100 kW.

Loesche’s scope of supply also comprises weigh feeders, apron feeders, magnetic separators, metal detectors, shutoff and control flaps, vibrating conveyors, a bucket elevator and expansion joints.

This is not the first Loesche VRM that Vicat has ordered. Raw mills of the same type are already in operation at the plant in Elmadag, as well as in the Konya cement plant, Turkey. The decision to acquire a further LM 45.4 mill will enable Vicat to keep the supply of spare parts to a minimum, as the same parts can be used on all mills of the same type.
