United Cement Company of Nigeria (UNICEM) has ordered the largest Loesche mill to-date, an LM 70.4+4 for its new line at the Calabar cement works.

The Loesche LM 70.4+4 will be used at Unicem’s new Calabar line in Nigeria with an output of 370tph at 4700 Blaine. The delivery period is 14 months.

The 4+4 concept follows Loesche mill types with 2+2 and 3+3 rollers. The 4+4 grinding concept is intended to allow high throughput capacity or it can run in 2+2 roller operation, generating a mill output of 60 per cent.
