Loesche receives Saudi Arabian roller mill order

United Cement Industrial Company (UCIC) has selected a Loesche LM 56.4 raw mill for its cement plant in Al-Sadiya, 150km south of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Tianjin Cement Industry Design and Research Institute Co Ltd Tianjin, part of China-based Sinoma International, signed the contract with Loesche for the delivery of a vertical roller mill to the Al-Sadiya plant.

Loesche’s order includes the design engineering and supply of the raw mill that will grind cement raw material at a product rate of 420tph with a fineneness of 12 per cent R 90μm/ two per cent R200μm.  Furthermore, Loesche will deliver the 3600kW gearbox.

The very hot ambient conditions in Saudi Arabia result in very dry raw materials. Therefore, to condition the grinding bed, a sprinkler system will be also installed on the raw mill.

Delivery for the key parts of the LM 56.4 is scheduled for August 2014. The commercial production of cement is expected to start in the 2H15.
