Göltas Cimento’s first vertical roller mill for cement grinding will be supplied by Loesche
To increase the cement grinding capacity at its plant in Isparta, Göltas Cimento ordered a Loesche Vertical Roller Mill of the Type LM 56.3+3.
Isparta – Göltas Cimento A.S. is operating two clinker production lines in Isparta, about 130 km North of Antalya, Turkey. As part of the existing lines, Göltas Cimento already successfully operates two Loesche Vertical Roller Mills; one for cement raw material grinding and the other one for coal grinding.
In order to increase the cement grinding capacity on site, Göltas Cimento and Loesche signed a contract in July 2013, for the supply of a third Loesche Vertical Roller Mill. The chosen Loesche Vertical Roller Mill – Type LM 56.3+3 – will be producing at least three different cement types, from a standard OPC cement to various types of composite cements. Production rates of up to 230 tph are foreseen.
Göltas Cimento realized that the Loesche Vertical Roller Mill technology is superior over all other available grinding systems. Loesche’s innovative Compact Plant Design for cement grinding plants was a major reason for Göltas Cimento to choose a Loesche Vertical Roller Mill for its project. This concept ensured that the grinding plant can be built into the very limited available plant footprint.
The new Loesche Compact Plant Design eliminates the necessity for a large and expensive mill building, leading to massive savings in required plant plot, in cost for structural steelworks and civil works as well as in erection time. The advanced Loesche technology, ensuring the production of various excellent product qualities, with high availability and very low energy consumption of the complete grinding plant, were further decision factors for Göltas Cimento to trust Loesche for the new cement mill.
This is, amongst other Loesche innovations in this direction, possible due to Loesche’s newly developed LDC classifier. This classifier is equipped with a patented gas flow straightener called “VORTEX Rectifier” which ensures an already homogeneous airstream at the classifier exit. Due to that a horizontal mill exit directly into the mill filter is possible. This leads for example into a reduced pressure drop of the mill system hence into savings in the specific power consumption of the complete grinding system.
