Loesche supplies largest ever cement mill in Europe
Jul, 02 2012
(Turkey) -- Nuryol Çimento has decided to use Loesche GmbH as the supplier of all mills for its new 4000t/day cement plant project in Karasu, around 150km east of Istanbul. Loesche will supply mills for coal grinding, cement raw material grinding and clinker grinding. The complete project execution and coordination will be done by Sintek Mining Machinery
Industry Construction, which is based in Ankara.
Loesche will supply one Loesche mill type LM 46.4 to grind cement raw material at a rate of 330t/hr to a fineness of 12% R90u and a Loesche mill type LM 28.2 D to grind coal. The design capacity of the coal mill is 30t/hr, to a fineness of 3% R90u.
For cement grinding Nuryol has purchased a Loesche mill type LM 63.3+3, including process filter and fan. The mill is designed to grind OPC cement with a capacity of 240t/hr to a fineness of 3800cm2/g according to Blaine. This Loesche mill represents the largest vertical roller mill for cement grinding in Turkey as well as in the whole of Europe. It will have a table diameter of 6.3m and will be driven by a motor with a rated capacity of 7200kW.
Loesche's innovative Compact Plant design for cement grinding plants was an important factor that Nuryol says led it to choose a Loesche vertical roller mill for cement grinding. Compact Plant design eliminates the need for a large and expensive mill building, leading to massive savings in the required plant plot, in cost for structural steelworks and civil works as well as in erection time.
