Published: 16 March 2011

In the second-half 2010, Gebr Pfeiffer secured an order from Wonder Cement Ltd, a new player on the Indian cement market. Wonder Cement is setting up a greenfield plant in Tehsil Nimbahera in Chittorgarh district where the 6500-7000tpd kiln will be fed by an MPS 5600 B raw mill.

The MPS 5600 B raw mill, which will come equipped with a 5600kW drive, is designed to produce 550tph of raw meal ground to a fineness of 15 % R90 µm.

Pulverised petcoke will be used as fuel for the kiln. It will be ground in an MPS 3070 BK roller mill designed for a capacity of 35tph to a fineness of two per cent R 90µm. It will also be possible to grind up to 64tph of coal or lignite in the mill, to dry them by means of process gases and to classify them in the integrated SLS-BK high efficiency classifier of the latest generation.

Due to the high abrasiveness of the Indian coal, the mill will be provided with appropriate wear protection.
