Bangladesh: FLSmidth supplies world’s largest VRM

FLSmidth has signed a contract with Bangladesh company, Shah Cement Industries Ltd, for the supply of an FLSmidth OKTM 62-6 vertical mill to its Mukhtarpur plant, Munshiganj, Bangladesh.

Scope of supply will include the main equipment, process and layout engineering, civil engineering and site advisory. Product companies will also participate in the deal, with FLSmidth MAAG Gear installing a MAAG® MAX Drive at the plant and FLSmidth Automation contributing to the full systems scope of supply. The OKTM 62-6 mill comes with weigh feeders supplied by FLSmidth Pfister® and process bag filters, process fans and auxiliary equipment from FLSmidth Airtech.

With a capacity of up to 640tph and 3800 Blaine, the OKTM 62-6 will be the largest cement VRM in the world to be installed at a cement plant, in terms of mechanical dimensions and operating capacity.

Shah Cement’s Director of Operations, Hafiz Sikander, spoke on the company’s choice of the OKTM 62-6, which boasts an 8.1m diameter grinding table and six grinding rollers, all with a greater than 2.6m diameter. Mr Sikander said, "We have selected FLSmidth's OKTM 62-6 mill for its exceptional efficiency and reduced power consumption. It is going to be the largest single unit grinding mill in the industry."
