Our customer, Yoo Gyeong CM, awarded its first contract for its KyungNam terminal to LOESCHE GmbH, the market leader in cement grinding. To grind the granulated blast furnace slag, the customer will use an LM 41.2+2 CS type LOESCHE mill with a capacity of 90t/h at 4,500Blaine as a reliable unit. The gearbox of this mill has a power output of 2,800kW.
Moreover, the scope of supply for this order includes the filter, the fan and the hot gas generator. All of the equipment is to be delivered in six to nine months’ time and the LOESCHE mill is to be put into operation as early as October 2016.
The customer, Yoo Gyeong CM, owns gravel works which it has equipped with its own cement mixing and loading terminals. The customer is currently purchasing ground slag to operate its plants. By using the LOESCHE vertical roller mill, the customer will be able to use the cheaper granulated slag in future. Even as a newcomer in the field of combined grinding and drying, management at Yoo Gyeong CM clearly recognised the advantage of this approach.
The numerous references in Korea convinced the customer of the quality and reliability of LOESCHE technology.
