Loesche has been selected by Sinoma International Engineering to provide a vertical roller mill and associated equipment for Dangote Cement’s new grinding plant in Douala, Cameroon.
A Loesche Mill Type LM 53.3+3C will grind clinker with components such as gypsum, limestone and pozzolana. The product rate of clinker type CEM I A-L 42.5 will be 155-168tph at 3200Blaine while the product rate of clinker type CEM II 32.5 will be 230tph at 3600Blaine. The mill motor capacity for the LM 53.3+3C will be 4600kW.
To cope with the extremely high feed moisture, the mill feed is separated into a dry string (clinker and reject) and a wet string (pozzolana and gypsum).
Additionally to the mill Loesche will deliver metal detectors and mill rotary feeders. The supply is a split-up of Loesche key parts and a Chinese manufactured portion arranged by Sinoma International under supervision of Loesche.
Delivery is scheduled for the beginning of 2014.
