Gebr Pfeiffer SE and its Indian subsidary Gebr Pfeiffer (India) has received a contract from Kolkata-based Emami Cement Ltd for four MVR mills and an MPS mill for coal grinding.

Emami Cement, a newcomer to the cement industry, is setting up a greenfield cement works in Chhattisgarh state.

Three MVR 6000 C-6 mills will be used for cement grinding. Each of these mills featuring an installed drive power of 6700kW will be capable of producing 335tph of OPC. The grinding plants will also be designed to allow fly ash cement and granulated blast-furnace slag to be ground to a fineness of 3800cm²/g acc. to Blaine and 4000cm²/g acc. to Blaine, respectively.

This order brings the number of MVR mills sold to the Indian market to 10, increasing the number of MVR mills ordered worldwide to 16.

For the grinding of the fuel to be used for the cement kiln, the customer opted for an MPS 3350 BK VRM which will be producing 80tph of hard coal ground to a fineness of 15 per cent R90µm.

While Gebr Pfeiffer SE will supply the core components of the mills and the gear units from Europe, its Indian subsidiary, Gebr Pfeiffer (India) Pvt.

In addition, the Indian subsidiary will design the plant layout and advise the customer on the equipment to be procured by itself.
