LOESCHE wins order for coal mill in Filipino cement plant of Barangay
LOESCHE could now once again place one of its vertical roller mills on the Filipino market. For the first time, the local cement manufacturer Eagle Cement Corporation ordered a LOESCHE vertical roller mill for its plant in Barangay in San Ildefonso – 50 km north of the capital city of Manila.
The coal mill for line 3 of the cement plant will ensure the fuel supply and is designed for grinding coal and pet coke with a capacity of 54 t/h of mixed coal or 34 t/h of pet coke. The grist is ground to a fineness of 12 % (coal) or 3 % (pet coke) sieving residue with 90 µm.
The scope of supply also includes an LSKS-classifier and corresponding filters, blowers, an inertisation unit, the gas analysis and the main drives – all components are to be delivered before the end of the 2017.
One benefit is that the coal mill operates with a low differential pressure and therefore has a significantly lower energy consumption than typical solutions. In addition the Eagle Cement Corporation (ECC) was impressed by the distinctly good price-performance ratio and the close customer contact developed over years.
The cement plant in San Ildefonso has been operating since 2010.
