In September 2011, Loesche was commissioned for a vertical mill of the type LM 63.3+3 by the Taigang Group International Trade Co., Ltd. (China) for its customers. This was to be the largest slag mill in the world. In March 2014, the plant went into operation in the steelworks of Tisco, Shanxi Taigang Stainless Steel Co. Ltd in Taiyuan/China and attained a new record product rate with 255 t/h blastfurnace slag meal after only a short time.
The mill is driven by a motor with an output of 7400 kW, the most powerful motor to have been installed so far by Loesche in a mill. The projected guarantee values of 255 t/h granulated blastfurnace slag at a fineness of 4400 Blaine are reliably attained here. This is also ensured by the newly developed Loesche LDC classifier, used in the grinding plant and ideally customized to the mills.
