Estanda has successfully completed the commissioning of a two-compartment cement ball mill for a cement producer in Saudi Arabia.

The project was carried out on Cement Mill 2  (with a diameter of 5m), operating in parallel with the Cement Mill 1 (CM1), which had previously been renovated and updated by Estanda in 2013.

The renovation of CM2 affected all the interior steel components of the mill involved in the grinding process: inlet headwall liners, lifting liners of first ball mill chamber, the intermediate diaphragm, the second chamber classifying liners and the outlet diaphragm. The designs and materials were according to Estanda technical specifications for the producer: improvement in productivity (> 15 per cent), wear reduction on the steel components (less maintenance) and increased profitability, the equipment supplier said.
