Deccan Cement orders coal mill from Gebr. Pfeiffer in India
Deccan Cement, based in Hyderabad/India, has ordered another vertical mill from Gebr. Pfeiffer for its new kiln line at the Bhavanipuram plant in Andhra Pradesh. The line will have a total capacity of 3m500 tonne per day.
The fuel for this line will be ground with an MPS 250 BK mill, which has been ordered through Gebr. Pfeiffer's Indian subsidiary based in Noida. In this case, Gebr. Pfeiffer India will also take over the complete order processing and production supervision of the mill manufactured in India.
Having already purchased a Pfeiffer raw meal mill in the past, the customer has also opted for a Gebr. Pfeiffer product for the coal grinding. The MPS 250 BK is to grind 35 t/h of coal to a fineness of 15 per cent residue on the 90 µm screen. Alternatively, pet coke can be ground to a fineness of approximately 2 per cent residue on the 90 µm screen or any mixture of the two materials.
The Gebr. Pfeiffer coal mills are designed in such a way that no variable speed drive of the mill is necessary, thus reducing the investment costs, as no frequency converter is required when changing over from coal to pet coke. The commissioning of the mill is planned before the rainy season in 2022.
