LOESCHE delivers new coal/petcoke grinding plants for Mexican cement industry

LOESCHE has now sold two of its biggest coal/petcoke grinding mills for the cement industry in Mexico. They have been selected by Cooperativa La Cruz Azul, S.C.L. for their plant in the province of Hidalgo, 80 km north of Mexico City, and for their Lagunas plant in the province of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. In each of these cases, the Cruz Azul group is establishing a new production line. At the Hidalgo plant with a production capacity of 2.8 million tpy, new, as well as all existing kiln lines are to be supplied with ground pet coke from the LOESCHE mill.

In addition to the mill with a capacity of 65 tph, LOESCHE will also be supplying the complete plant equipment including mill fans, inertisation units, explosion protection valves, feed screw and drag chain conveyors, as well as the complete electrotechnical equipment.


This adds to an existing relationship between the two companies as, at the end of 2016, LOESCHE delivered one complete cement grinding plant with a LOESCHE mill type LM 46.2+2 CS that is currently being put into operation for the Tepezalá cement plant of the customer CYCNA, who also belongs to Cruz Azul Group.

The two new coal/petcoke mills in the cement plants of La Curz Azul S.C.L. are based on the proven mill design with 4 rollers and are characterised by their modular construction as proven in the cement industry. These mills are perfectly suited for processing petcoke fuel for heat generation in kiln furnaces and precalciners.
