AMCC: Raising capacities at Alexandria plant

The Amreyah Cement Company (AMCC)/Egypt – a member of the Cimpor Group – also awarded Polysius France a turnkey modernisation order. This involves the upgrading of kiln line 2 and conversion of the cement mill at their Alexandria plant with the aim of raising the production capacity to 3500 t/d of cement clinker. The two raw grinding plants are to be equipped with SEPOL LM high-efficiency separators for a throughput of ­170 t/h each, and the electrostatic precipitators are to be replaced with new bag filters. Using the existing tower, the preheater is to be completely refurbished and a bucket elevator will be installed for raw meal dosing. In addition, a new tertiary air duct and a new kiln hood are to be installed, various modifications will be made to the clinker cooler and a new dust collection filter is planned. The cement grinding system will be converted from open-circuit mill to a closed-circuit system equipped with a SEPOL SV separator for an output of 150 tonnes of cement per hour. Commissioning of the cement grinding plant is due to take place as early as 2012, while commissioning of the kiln system is scheduled for 2013.
