In 2007 the Iskenderun cement works were newly built by Adana Çimento Sanayii TAŞ and equipped with a LOESCHE mill of type LM 53.3+3 CS for grinding clinker slag.
Now, Adana Çimento Sanayii TAŞ has placed an order for a LOESCHE mill of type LM 46.4 for the Adana works in Southern Turkey, a Brownfield plant. This vertical roller mill with a transmission power of 2,750kW is used for grinding 200t/h of raw material to white cement. The material is ground to a fineness of 8% R 90 µm.
Adana Çimento Sanayii TAŞ exports the cement and clinker produced in part to Europe and Asia.
A period of nine months is allowed for delivery so that the LOESCHE roller mill can already be put into operation during the fourth quarter in 2016.
