The first VRMs for cement grinding to El Arish Cement

El Arish Cement of Egypt is extending the clinker production capacity of its existing cement plant and will add two new lines with a clinker production capacity of 5500 tpd each. The company already operates two Loesche vertical roller mills of the type LM 56.4 for cement raw material grinding within their existing lines 1 and 2, so it was decided to have the same mills again also for the new lines. They will grind raw meal with a capacity of 450 tph and a fineness of 12 % R90 μm. As the new mills are of the same type than the existing ones, common spare parts can be used keeping the spare parts demand to a minimum.

For cement grinding El Arish decided also for Loesche VRMs by selecting two large mills of the type LM 63.3+3. The ­table diameter of those mills equal to 6.3 m and will be driven by a drive system with a rated capacity of 6800 kW. The mills will grind various cement types with capacities of up to 305 tph.
