Four mills from Düsseldorf-based Loesche GmbH will help upgrade Bestway Cement’s Farooqia cement plant in Pakistan. The four mills will be supplied to Sinoma International Engineering Co., which is handling plant construction for Bestway.

The four mills include one raw mill, one coal mill, and two clinker mills. All will be delivered to the site within seven months.

The raw mill is a high-performance four-roller vertical roller mill (VRM) with a capacity of 450 tph. It will grind cement raw material to a fineness of 12% R90 µm.

Two medium-performance 170 tph mills will be supplied for grinding of cement to a fineness of 3200 Blaine. Coal will be ground on a large modular VRM with a capacity off 40 tph to a fineness of 10% R90 µm.

“Sinoma and Loesche have globally been working together successfully for many years,” Loesche said in a press release. “The numerous positive experiences with Loesche mills, the competitive price, and the face delivery time of only seven months were decisive factors in Sinoma’s decision to again choose [Loesche] grinding plants.”

Bestway Cement is part of the UK-based Bestway conglomerate. The company currently owns four cement plants in Pakistan with annual production around 6 million t.
