Pakistani Pioneer Cement Ltd. orders four LOESCHE mills
New cement production line in Chenki/ Punjab province with innovative classifier and dedusting technology
LOESCHE is contributing to the new production line of the cement plant of Pakistani Pioneer Cement Ltd. with four vertical roller mills. With the newly constructed cement line, Pioneer Cement will expand its production capabilities to around 8,000 t/day at the plant in Chenki/Khushab district at the center of the Punjab province.
A powerful LOESCHE mill for grinding cement raw meal with a throughput of 630 t/h is to be used here. In addition there are also two cement mills for clinker with a processing capacity of 235 t/h each. The LDC (LOESCHE Dynamic Classifier), which is used in the plant and is optimally customized to the LOESCHE mills, ensures the appropriate fineness. The patented vortex rectifier and an optimized flow characteristic produce significantly lower energy consumption and therefore lower operating costs.
Efficient dedusting of the raw material mill is carried out using two HURRICLON® systems of the LOESCHE subsidiary ATEC. Advantage: HURRICLON® technology plays an important part in reducing the total energy requirement of the plant due to the low pressure loss and high degree of separation. It also creates savings in steel construction and installation due to the significantly lower weight compared to conventional cyclone technology.
The LOESCHE delivery, which will be processed by autumn 2018, also includes a coal mill with a throughput capacity of 60 t/h. This is equipped with the tried-and-tested dynamic classifier of the LSKS model series (LOESCHE bar cage classifier).
The installer of the new plant and LOESCHE contracting partner in the project is the Chinese Chengdu Design & Research Institute, which belongs to the well-known company Sinoma International Engineering Co., Ltd., who specializes in the planning of cement plants and has already worked together successfully with LOESCHE within the scope of numerous orders. With this order the number of LOESCHE mills in Pakistan increases to 32, which further consolidates the good reputation in Pakistan.
