Cement plant engineering or large scale plant engineering in general is subject to certain boundary conditions, which influence the equipment engineering for it, make it very challenging and make both the optimization of the engineering processes and the products themselves demanding. From an mechanical engineering view these are:
the small quantities built
the very large dimensions of components
the need for extremely high availability of plants and especially
the constantly changing requirements from order to order, e. g. regarding to plant size, scope of delivery, process...
