Published: 30 June 2009

Only a few weeks after Gebr Pfeiffer AG, Germany, and its Indian subsidiary Gebr. Pfeiffer (India) Pvt. Ltd. had been contracted to supply a raw meal grinding plant, Chennai-based THE KCP Limited placed another order.

Not only will an MPS 4500 B roller mill for cement raw material grinding be installed but also an MPS 2800 BK for coal grinding in the new cement manufacturing plant which will be located in Muktyala Village, Jaggayapet Mandal, in Krishna District of Andhra Pradesh state.

The coal, which will be used to fire the cement rotary kiln, will be ground to a product fineness of 15% residue 90µm. The mill with an installed power of 570kW is designed for a finished product rate of 40 t/h. While being ground in the mill, the coal, which may have a feed moisture of up to 15%, is dried with hot gases.

Although the customer possesses its own manufacturing facilities in which components for ball mills and vertical roller mills of various suppliers are manufactured, he decided to have all components manufactured by the Gebr Pfeiffer due to the excellent quality of their products.

The core components of the mill and the classifier, like for instance the rollers, the hydropneumatic tension system and the mill gear unit will be supplied by Gebr Pfeiffer AG. The other components of the mill as well as the components required to complete the grinding plant will be supplied by Gebr. Pfeiffer (India) Pvt. Ltd.
