World Cement,

After selling more than 140 vertical mills in India, within the last year Gebr. Pfeiffer has received four orders from neighbouring Nepal. The fourth vertical mill will be installed at a cement plant in the town of Sunwal for Palpa Cement Industries Private Ltd and will grind portland and blastfurnace cement.

Supplied by the mill manufacturer from its factory in Kaiserslauten, Germany, the MVR 3350 C-4 will have a drive power of 2150 kW and is designed to grind 130 tph of cement at 3000 Blaine, as well as 100 tph of blastfurnace cement at 3800 Blaine.

Gebr. Pfeiffer’s MVR mills are “state-of-the-art vertical mill technology, which have proven successful across the globe,” the German company said. “This was one of the key factors behind the customer’s buying decision, as the MVR mill guarantees a low vibration level and efficient grinding.”

Commissioning of the new mill is planned for mid-2019.
