Kolkata-based Shree Cement has activated an order for another cement mill from Gebr. Pfeiffer. As part of the company’s expansion strategy to spread grinding plants across the whole of India, Shree Cement will now equip a grinding plant near Pune in the state of Maharashtra with a Pfeiffer mill.
For the grinding of clinker and extenders, MVR 6000 C-6 type cement mills are used in the cement plants and stand-alone grinding units of Shree Cement. The company successfully operates this type of mill at various locations. These repeat orders show the satisfaction of the customer, who has now ordered 34 mills from Gebr. Pfeiffer.
The MVR mill, with its six actively redundant grinding rollers, has proven particularly successful for the finish-grinding of cement. Compared to other grinding systems previously used by this customer, this system allows significant savings on electrical energy. In addition, the high level availability of Pfeiffer mills played a key role in the customer’s buying decision.
The planned plant for cement grinding, using the MVR 6000 C-6, is to alternately produce 300 tph of ordinary portland cement at a product fineness of 3100 cm2/g acc. to Blaine; 300 tph of portland pozzolana cement, containing as much as 35% of flyash at a product fineness of 3500 cm2/g acc. to Blaine; or 180 tph of ground granulated blastfurnace slag at a product fineness of 4500 cm2/g acc. to Blaine. The mill will come equipped with a 6700 kW drive.
While Gebr. Pfeiffer SE will supply the core components of the mill and the gear unit from Europe, its Indian subsidiary, headquartered in Noida, Gebr. Pfeiffer (India) Pvt Ltd, will provide the components such as the housing of the mill and classifier, the steel foundation parts, and the internal parts of the classifier. In addition, the Indian subsidiary will design the plant layout and advise the customer on the equipment it will procure on its own.
The current order has been place before the acceptance of the predecessor grinding plant in Jharkand, where an identical mill was successfully commissioned within a few days.
Shree Cement and Gebr. Pfeiffer look back on 25 years of cooperation, which is based on mutual trust and understanding. The two companies are not only customers or suppliers, they also work together in a spirit of partnership to achieve their common goal.
