First mill from Gebr. Pfeiffer to Burkina Faso

The regional cement demand in West Africa is growing steadily and the cement producers are counting on reliable and economical solutions. Thus, Gebr. Pfeiffer is again delivering an MVR vertical mill to this region.

The vertical mill type MVR 6000 C-6 with an installed gear power of 6800 kW will be used in the second line of the Cim Metal Group in the Bobo-Dioulasso plant in Burkina Faso. The grinding plant is being realised by the German company Intercem Engineering AG, which is very well known in Africa. Gebr. Pfeiffer is supplying the mill and the process design, Intercem is contributing the execution as a complete plant.

The total production of the plant will thus be more than doubled. The vertical mill is used for different cement types between 4000 cm²/g and 5000 cm²/g according to Blaine and produces more than 400 t/h with its six active grinding rollers. The mill will be equipped with the latest classifier generation of the type SLS VC, which is characterised by a significant reduction of the differential pressure and, as a result, of the specific energy consumption at the mill fan.

The order also includes the delivery of a replacement gearbox. This will be the first MVR mill to be installed in Burkina Faso, although a large number of Pfeiffer vertical roller mills have gone into operation on the African continent in recent years. For Gebr. Pfeiffer, this is confirmation that customers on the African continent are convinced by the extensive process know-how and the wide range of economic solutions.
