The cement producer SemeyCement has placed an order with Gebr. Pfeiffer for a vertical mill of type MVR 5000 C-4 to grind various types of cement.
This state-of-the-art mill will be installed at the Semey cement plant on the banks of the river Irtysh in the western part of the city of Semey.
With this investment, SemeyCement is further advancing its extensive project to modernise its production. An international invitation to tender was completed and the contract with Gebr. Pfeiffer signed in August 2020.
The active redundancy provided by the four grinding rollers, which enables the mill to operate with a reduced number of grinding rollers, gives the cement producer the security of its plant having a high level of availability. This MVR feature was one of the reasons for choosing the Pfeiffer technology.
The mill has a drive power of 4000 kW and will be equipped with a high-efficiency SLS 4500 BC classifier. The throughput rate is up to 200 t of cement per hour.
Delivery of the vertical roller mill is scheduled for autumn 2021.
