A new kiln line is being developed in the Batisöke, Söke Cimento Sanayii TAS cement plant in Turkey. Due to their experience with a project carried out almost 25 years, ago and the technology supplied by LOESCHE at the time, the customer Batisöke, Söke Cimento Sanayii TAS has decided to collaborate with LOESCHE again in this project.
The challenge of this project lies in the installation of the new kiln line in an already existing plant. The customer trusts in LOESCHE as a reliable and solid partner, with whom an integration of the new technologies into the limited available space is possible.
In the new Söke plant, a type LM 56.4 LOESCHE mill with a capacity of 500t/ph is being used with a fineness of 12% R at 90 micrometres for grinding cement raw material. The gearbox of this mill has a power of 3,400kW. Magnetic separators, metal detectors, refined parts for the mill fan and the engineering of the cyclone are also included in the scope of supply. The lead time for this vertical roller mill is ten months.
The LOESCHE mill sold to the customer Baticim, Bati Anadolu Cimento Sanayii AS in 1991, a type LM 26.3 D coal mill, is still running well even after 24 years. The new kiln line is now fitted with a type LM 28.3 D LOESCHE coal mill, with a capacity of 40t/ph with a fineness of 5% R at 90 micrometres for grinding solid fuels. The gearbox has a power of 700kW. For this mill, the further scope of supply includes magnetic separators, metal detectors, process filters, refined parts for the mill fan and, above all, explosion flaps.
For grinding clinker, the type LM 53.3+3 CS LOESCHE mill with a capacity of 200t/ph CEM I with a fineness of 3,500 Blaine is being used. The gearbox has a power of 4,700kW. The commissioning of the new mills in the Batisöke Söke Cimento Sanayii TAS cement plant is planned in the second quarter of 2017.
