World Cement,

The Hormicreto clinker plant in Ecuador recently contracted Gebr. Pfeiffer Inc., which is a subsidiary of Gebr. Pfeiffer SE, to supply a complete grinding station to replace its ageing ball mills. The new grinding station will help to reduce the plant’s energy consumption and also improve its overall grinding efficiency. This will then enable the plant to increase production while continuing to use only a single mill.

The following components of the new grinding station were supplied by Gebr. Pfeiffer:

  • MPS 2500 BC Swing Mill with ‘lift and swing’ technology.
  • SLS 2250 BC classifier.
  • Bucket elevator.
  • Reject conveyor belt.
  • Chutes and divert chutes.
  • Reject silo.
  • Weigh feeder.
  • De-dusting unit.
  • Metal detector.
  • Separator.
  • Rotary locks.
  • Bag filter.
  • Mill fan.
  • Ducting, expansion joints and dampers.
  • HML 1250 Pfeiffer Hot Gas Generator.
  • MCC, control and instrumentation.
  • Related engineering services.

Delivery of the entire grinding station to the Hormicreto clinker plant is expected to be complete by December 2015.
