Fives will supply a new high-efficiency separator for the Lafarge Cement Egypt petcoke grinding unit in the frame of its conversion from open to close circuit by Imsat (Romania).
Thanks to the installation of the FCB TSV™ Classifier the grinding plant will produce 90tph of pulverised petcoke with R90µm ≤ 5 per cent, as required by LCE to shift from the conventional fuel used presently for the pyroprocess to petcoke. This project is aiming at relieving the stress on the cement plant due to the energy crisis in Egypt.
The selected FCB TSV™ Classifier is of 4000 MF series, with 4m outer diameter, and 90KW installed power. Nominal cut size is 60µm.
