Published by Rebecca Bowden,
In December 2016, Belgian enterprise Cemminerals NV gave Gebr. Pfeiffer an order for the supply of a grinding plant for slag and cement. The plant will be set up in Flanders, in the middle of Europe, and will have an MVR 5300 C-6 mill installed.
The contract also encompasses the handling equipment, two infeed devices to enable moist slag and dry clinker to be fed to the mill separately, the plant filter, the plant fan, the magnetic drum separator, all ductwork including chutes, expansion joints, and the stack. The scope of supply also includes a hot gas generator for the heating of the mill, as well as all electrical drives, starters, frequency converters and the electrical switchgear.
The Pfeiffer MVR 5300 C-6 slag and cement mill features 6 rollers and is the most advanced vertical roller mill available on the market. It will grind five different types of cement, as well as pure slag to three degrees of fineness. The mill is guaranteed to achieve a capacity of 132 tph of pure slag, ground to a fineness of 5000 cm²/g according to Blaine, and a capacity of up to 200 tph CEM II, ground to a fineness of 3500 cm²/g according to Blaine. The main mill drive is designed for an installed power of 4600 kW, and the SLS 4750 BC high-efficiency classifier, mounted on top of the MVR mill, enables high material fineness degrees of up to 5000 cm2/g according to Blaine.
The mill is scheduled for commissioning in early 2018.
