Belgian lime producer, Lhoist, has ordered a third FCB TSV classifier 1400 HF from French engineering company, Fives, to increase the production of a limestone grinding plant in Poland. The plant, which is one of the company’s largest plants, already operates two FCB TSV classifiers, installed in 1999 and 2016.


The new classifier will close a circuit, which has consisted of a ball mill in open circuit. The installation of the new equipment will increase both the grinding line capacity and the quality of the finished products.

Lhoist has been “very satisfied” with the two existing FCB TSV classifiers, Fives said. “The first has been operating for 18 years in the same workshop. The group has naturally selected FCB technology once again.”

Established in 1889, Lhoist operates over 100 facilities around the world, including four plants in Poland. The family-owned company had a turnover of €2.2 billion in 2015.
