Deccan Cement Ltd, based in Hyderabad/India, has ordered another vertical mill from Gebr. Pfeiffer for its new kiln line at the Bhavanipuram plant in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The line will have a total capacity of 3500 t/d.
The fuel for this line will be ground with an MPS 250 BK mill, which has been ordered through Gebr. Pfeiffer’s Indian subsidiary based in Noida. In this case, Gebr. Pfeiffer India will also take over the complete order processing and production supervision of the mill manufactured in India.
Having already purchased a Pfeiffer raw meal mill in the past, the customer has also opted for a Gebr. Pfeiffer product for the coal grinding. The MPS 250 BK is to grind 35 t/h of coal to a fineness of 15% residue on the 90 µm screen. Alternatively, pet coke can be ground to a fineness of approx. 2% residue on the 90 µm screen or any mixture of the two materials. The Gebr. Pfeiffer coal mills are designed in such a way that no variable speed drive of the mill is necessary, thus reducing the investment costs, as no frequency converter is required when changing over from coal to pet coke.
The commissioning of the mill is planned before the rainy season in 2022.
