As part of the modernization of the kiln line, the four MPS vertical roller mills installed at the works in Burglengenfeld/Germany will be replaced after forty years of successful operation. The cement producer’s high level of satisfaction with the Pfeiffer technology is reflected in a recent order for two new Pfeiffer MPS mills which will be used as substitutes for the old mills.
HeidelbergCement AG opted for two MPS 4250 B roller mills. Each mill is designed to achieve a capacity of 200 t/h of cement raw material ground to a fineness of 12 % R 90 µm. The drive power per mill is 2250 kW.
In addition, Gebr. Pfeiffer will supply the complete equipment for the external material circulation system as well as the cyclone collectors and mill fans. The supply of the mechanical equipment will be completed by engineering services covering the plant layout and the integration of the process-related ductwork within the existing, complex plant.
Raw mill No. 1 is scheduled to go on stream at the end of 2016 and No. 2 the following year.
