Konya – Biberci İnşaat specialises in infrastructure works including road construction, interchange, water conduction lines, sewerage, natural gas and other energy transfer lines, now they are also planning to produce their own cement in Konya, Turkey.

One of their first investments for the new greenfield cement plant is the order of LOESCHE’s LM 56.3+3 cement mill for the grinding of clinker. The mill will be producing 200 t/h of OPC at 3,800 blaine. The gearbox is planned with a capacity of 5,400 kW.

20 years of experience with the 3+3 technology for cement mills

LOESCHE’s 2+2/ 3+3 system was developed for a better grinding bed stability and patented in 1994. More than 310 mills of this type have already been sold throughout the world for the production of a wide spectrum of cement types. Using this technology it is possible to produce OPC with a fineness of up to 6,000 blaine.

LOESCHE’s 20 years of experience using this grinding technology, with the added advantage of a Low Specific Energy Consumption, has convinced Biberci İnşaat, to decide in favour of purchasing the vertical roller mill from LOESCHE Germany.

Delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2015.
