Loesche supplies another vertical roller mill to Adana Cement

The Adana cement works do not only grind slag but now also cement raw material using a Loesche vertical roller mill.

In 2007 the Iskenderun cement works were newly built by Adana ­Çimento ­Sanayii T.A.S¸. and equipped with a Loesche mill of type LM 53.3+3 S for grinding clinker slag. Now, Adana ­Çimento Sanayii T.A.S¸. has placed an order for a Loesche mill of type LM 46.4 for the Adana works in Southern Turkey, a brownfield plant. This vertical roller mill with a transmission power of 2750 kW is used for grinding 200 t/h of raw material to white cement. The material is ground to a fineness of 8 % R 90 μm.

Adana Çimento Sanayii T.A.S¸. exports the cement and clinker produced in part to Europe and Asia.

A period of nine months is allowed for delivery so that the Loesche roller mill can already be put into operation during the fourth quarter in 2016.
