PAUL WURTH S.A., a Loesche client of many years opted again to select Loesche’s vertical mill technology. This time, it is being used for the injection of coal dust into the blast furnace of the Dniprodzerzhynsk’s Steelworks in the Ukraine.
There are already two coal mills in the Ukraine, provided by Loesche GmbH. Both are for the PCI Protects Jenakievo and Zaporozh Steel Works. So far, Loesche has sold 8 coal mills to clients in the Ukraine.
In Russia, three PCI projects are under way for Lipezk, Nizhni Tagil, and Novokuznezk, totalling 8 Loesche coal mills. All are currently in their construction phase.
This means, the existing PCI plants in Russia are 100% equipped with Loesche mills – a total of 17 coal mills sold by Loesche for the use in steel plants.
For the Dniprodzerzhynsk Coal Project, two Loesche mills are intended, grinding 70 t of brown coal per hour to a fineness of 20% R DIN 0.09 mm. The mill motor for both vertical mills, type LM 26.3 D, will have a capacity of 780 kW.
Loesche’s scope of supply for both coal mills LM 26.3 will also include two gearboxes and two hot gas generators (HGG), type LF 20. Each will be equipped with a multiple lance burner (MLB) and a start burner.
Paul Wurth S.A. will handle the Dniprodzerzhynsk Coal Project and anticipates delivery of the Loesche mills for July of 2014.
