HeidelbergCement has placed orders for two new Gebr Pfeiffer MBS mills to subsitute older mills at the Burglengenfeld works, in Germany. As part of the modernisation of the kiln line, the four MPS vertical roller mills installed at Burglengenfeld works in Germany will be replaced after 40 years of good operation.
HeidelbergCement AG opted for two MPS 4250 B roller mills. Each mill is designed to achieve a capacity of 200tph of cement raw material ground to a fineness of 12 per cent R90 µm. The drive power per mill is 2250kW.
In addition, Gebr. Pfeiffer will supply the complete equipment for the external material circulation system as well as the cyclone collectors and mill fans. The supply of the mechanical equipment will be completed by engineering services covering the plant layout and the integration of the process-related ductwork within the existing, complex plant.
Raw mill 1 is scheduled to go on stream at the end of 2016 and raw mill 2 the following year.
