Gebr Pfeiffer SE has won a contract to supply a MVR 6700 C-6 cement mill and an MVR 6000 R-6 raw mill for Lafarge’s cement plant near the Algerian town of Biskra.
This acquisition underpins Lafarge’s strategy towards the "one-mill solution with MultiDrive®", Gebr Pfeiffer said, noting that it offers a "high level of availability when it comes to cement grinding, thus giving preference to this concept over the conventional two-mill solution with less availability."
The cement mill has an installed total drive power of 9125kW and will be capable of producing 231-342tph of OPC ground to a product fineness of 3700-4800 cm²/g according to Blaine.
The raw mill, which will come equipped with a conventional drive having an installed power of 6120kW, is designed to grind 680tph of cement raw material to a finished product fineness of ≤ 12 per cent R90µm and 460tph of limestone to a product fineness of ≤ 1 per cent R150µm.
The order was placed via the general contractor CBMI and delivery is scheduled for summer 2015.
