Mexican cement producer, Cementos Moctezuma, has signed the acceptance certificate for its new FCB Horomill® 3800, installed at the Apazapan site in Veracruz, Mexico. Fives supplied the mill for raw meal grinding on Apazapan’s second production line.

FCB Horomill® technology grinds material through bed compression. This  technology reduces energy consumption by up to 50% compared to balls mills and  up to 20% compared to vertical mills.

In addition to the raw materials of cement production, FCB Horomills can be used to grind cement, slag or any other minerals without water injection. 

The second line at Apazapan began operations in January, bringing the plant’s capacity to 2.75 million tpy of cement. The project was completed in under two years from its start in February 2015 and cost US$150 million. It is one of three plants that Cementos Moctezuma operates for a combined capacity of 8 million tpy.
