Published: 01 May 2013


Peruvian cement producer Cementos Yura has placed an order with Loesche America Inc for a clinker/additives grinding plant to installed at its Arequipa plant, Peru.

Based on good and long-term experience with an existing Loesche Mill Type LM 56.2+2 C/S, Yura has once again selected this type of vertical roller mill to be installed at the plant, which is situated 2600m above sea level. The mill will be part of a clinker/pozzolana dry-grinding plant for which Loesche is supplying the main mechanical equipment.

Materials to be ground include clinker, gypsum and pozzolana. The product rates will exceed 170tph of cement with a fineness of 5000cm2/g according to Blaine. The gearbox has an installed capacity of 4000kW.

Loesche will be responsible for importing the sections of the grinding plant that range from the mill feed hoppers to the cement silo inlet. Furthermore, Loesche will deliver a compact LoMA hot gas generator (Loesche design), the main set of drive motors, a set of instruments for process control loops and the dust emissions monitoring equipment.

Delivery is scheduled to take eight months.
