Gebr. Pfeiffer MPS vertical roller mill to modernize gypsum processing equipment
The internationally operating Etex Group produces dry construction materials under the brand name of Siniat. The Sinat GmbH works in Hartershofen/Germany is involved in the manufacture of gypsum plasterboards and plaster moulds.
On this brownfield project, Gebr. Pfeiffer could particularly impress with its tailor-made concept of implementation which will allow Hartershofen’s production to remain largely unaffected by the forthcoming modernization activities. Moreover, the fact that Gebr. Pfeiffer was able to offer a solution from one source was of particular importance to the customer. All this led to Gebr. Pfeiffer being awarded the contract.
The installed Pfeiffer MPS 125 A vertical roller mill, which has been in operation at the works since 1990, will be replaced with a vertical mill of the type MPS 160 B. This new mill will be set up in an annex next to the old grinding plant. To be noted is that a major part of the existing equipment will be reused. This procedure will ensure that the current production can be maintained as long as possible during the phase of implementation.
The scope of services comprises delivery of the mill, proportioning equipment, hot gas generator, process ducting, electrics, buildings and foundations including installation and connection works as well as integration into the existing process.
Switch-over and commissioning of the grinding plant are planned for December 2016.
