Loesche has delivered the world’s largest slag mill to Taigang Group International Trade Co, Ltd, German equipment specialists have said in a statement.

Loesche received the order for a vertical mill type LM 63.3+3 for grinding granulated blastfurnace slag in September 2011.  The plant went into operation at the steelworks of TISCO, Shanxi Taigang Stainless Steel Co. Ltd in Taiyuan in March 2014. It attained a new record product rate of 255tph of blastfurnace slag meal after only a short period of operation.

In the TISCO steelworks, the LM 63.3+3 has now been used for the pure grinding of granulated blastfurnace slag for the first time. The mill is driven by a motor with an output of 7400kW, the most powerful motor to have been installed so far by Loesche in a mill. The mill has achieved the projected guarantee values of 255tph of granulated blastfurnace slag at a fineness of 4400 Blaine. This is also ensured by the newly developed Loesche LDC classifier, used in the grinding plant and ideally customised for use with the Loesche mills.
