Topnewer awarded new contract at

Bestway Cement's Chakwal plant, Pakistan

On 27 April 2019, Topnewer's commissioning team arrived at Bestway Cement Ltd's Chakwal plant, Pakistan, to commission ball mill No 3 following the replacement of steel grinding media with ceramic grinding balls in the second chamber to reduce specific power consumption.

Topnewer was invited to upgrade the ball mill, having successfully installed ceramic grinding balls at ball mill No 2 in February 2018. By the end of April 2019, ball mill 2 had been running for 14 months and produced 1,005,683t of cement. According to Bestway, with this technology, the annual average specific power saving rate is 3.41kWh/t.

After two weeks of technical modification and commissioning, ball mill 3 has been operating successfully. When the system was optimised, the specific power saving was over 4kWh/t.

The Topnewer team has also succeeded in introducing its innovative technology not only in Pakistan but also to India. Commissioning work will start in the first week of June 2019 at Vikram Cement (UltraTech Cement).
