Ciment Quebec Inc. has selected Fives FCB to upgrade its cement grinding in Saint Basile Plant, Quebec/Canada

Fives FCB was awarded a contract by Ciment Quebec Inc. (CQI) for the supply of two new FCB Horomill® grinding workshops to upgrade its Saint Basile Plant cement production facilities in Quebec/Canada.

Production of high-quality cement with higher additives content

Ciment Quebec was looking for a cutting-edge, reliable and environmentally-friendly grinding technology to produce today’s numerous types of high quality cements and succeed in their evolution towards higher additives content.

Fives technologies to reduce environmental impact and perfectly comply with technical requirements

To best meet CQ’s requirements, Fives has proposed its FCB Horomill technology that perfectly matched the criteria with the following main advantages:

Optimized CK ratio cement production capacity

Zero water use in the process

Lowest electrical consumption of the market

All in reduced CO2 emissions per ton of cement

Data processing for a permanent optimization of the installation

Fully automated operation with rapid change of recipe

In addition the compactness as well as low noise and vibration levels of the installation was particularly adapted to an existing and limited environment.

Two FCB Horomill 4200 grinding workshops will be implemented, each including one FCB TSV™ 5000 THF Classifier with one FCB Aerodecanter/Flash dryer and one Fives TGT® process filter.

CQI’s decision was based on its conviction about the validity and benefits of the FCB Horomill technology, after having visited installations in the USA and Mexico, and also thanks to the excellent quality results during the pilot tests performed by the FCB Horomill 500 compared to industrial ones in a ball mill.
