Turkey: Askale orders KHD's COMFLEX roller press system for two cement plants
Published: 25 January 2016


Askale Cimento has awarded KHD with an order for two new COMFLEX® grinding units at the Turkish cement producer's Akoluk and Bilecik plants.

At the Akoluk works, the new COMFLEX system will be installed up stream of a new 100tph ball mill.  Meanwhile, at the Bilecik plant the COMFLEX unit will allow Askale Cemento to increase existing capacity from 100tph to 210tph at 3800 blaine.

KHD’s scope includes engineering as well as the supply of mechanical and electrical equipment. KHD will also supervise erection and commissioning of the new systems.

The core equipment of the COMFLEX® SC16-3500 clinker grinding system includes:

• Roller Press RPS 16-170/180 with ROLCOX® system for control and monitoring
• Cascade separator, type VS 618 as static classifier
• High efficiency separator SEPMASTER, type SKS-VC 3500 as dynamic classifier
•  HKSK 212/275 system fan.

Commissioning of both COMFLEX systems is planned for the first part of 2017.

With this new order KHD has now sold six COMFLEX plants in Turkey. Other COMFLEX systems are in operation for Denizli, KCS, Aslan and Batisöke.

Between 2006 and 2011 KHD supplied three kiln lines to Askale plants in Askale, Van and Gümüshane.
