Gebr. Pfeiffer supplies mills to Shree Cement

World Cement,

Gebr. Pfeiffer has sold ten more mills to Kolkata-based company Shree Cement.

The deal continues the company’s expansion policy to distribute several cement works across the whole of India and produce cement in stand-alone grinding terminals.

Gebr. Pfeiffer will supply the cement works with capacities of about 550 tph and an installed drive power of 6700 kW each. The works will come equipped with MPS 2800- BK type coal mills, each featuring a 720-kW drive and an integrated high-efficiency type SLS BK classifier. MVR 6000 C-6 type cement mills are planned to grind clinker and extenders in these cement works and/or stand-alone grinding terminals.

The described mill types are in successful operation at various of Shree Cement’s locations and these repeatedly ordered mills reflect the satisfaction of the customer. Shree Cement is currently running 24 Pfeiffer mills.

The MVR mill with its 6 actively redundant grinding rollers has proven particularly successful for the finish-grinding of cement. Compared to other combined grinding systems, previously used by this customer, this system allows significant savings on electrical energy. In addition, the high level of availability of Pfeiffer mills played a key role in the customer’s buying decision.

The plants planned for cement grinding are to alternately produce 300 tph of OPC at a product fineness of 3100 cm2/g acc. To Blaine, or 300 tph of PPC containing as much as 35% flyash at a product fineness of 3500 cm2/g acc. To Blaine. Each of the mills will come equipped with a 6700-kW drive.

While Gebr. Pfeiffer SE will supply the core components of the mill and the gear units from Europe, its Indian subsidiary, headquartered in Noida, Gebr. Pfeiffer (India) Pvt. Ltd., will provide the components such as the housings of the mills and classifiers, the steel foundation parts as well as the internal parts of the classifiers. In addition, the Indian subsidiary will design the plant layout and advise the customer on the equipment he will procure on his own.
