Cement Machinery Industry

Cement Machinery Industry

The cement machinery industry in India has evolved over the years keeping pace with the technological developments overseas
The Indian cement machinery industry is engaged in the manufacture of complete cement plants with capacities upto 10,000 TPD. based on dry processing and pre-calcination technology. The thrust on infrastructure projects by the Indian government augurs well for the cement industry and, in turn, for the cement machinery industry.
Cement companies have already expanded their capacities in anticipation of demand from the housing and infrastructure sectors. However, since the demand has not materialised, there is excess capacity in the cement industry. But this is deemed to be a passing phase, and the demand is expected to pick up once the economy turns around. Once this happens, the cement manufacturers are expected to once again go into expansion mode and this is where the machinery manufacturers can play a vital role by catering to the need latest for the technology machines, equipments and products for cement manufacturers.
According to the Ministry of Heavy Industries, presently there are 18 units in the organised sector for the manufacture of cement plant machinery. Modern cement plants are designed for high product quality, higher output with lower energy consumption and zero downtime. Presently, in India, cement is manufactured through dry process, wet process or semi-wet/semi-dry process. The dry process is considered superior because of its high fuel economy. Hence, many of the older wet process plants are being converted to dry process.
The technological collaborations of Indian companies with international cement machinery manufacturers have made it possible for Indian cement companies to procure plant, machinery and equipments for large sized plant with capacities of 3,000 TPD and more. The industry has been delicensed and foreign direct investment upto 100 per cent along with technological collaboration is allowed under the automatic route.
Evolution
The cement plant and machinery industry has evolved over the years, moving from the wet process technology to the dry process based on pre-heater and pre-calciner technology, thereby improving fuel efficiency. The size of the dry process kilns ranges from 1,500 TPD to as much as 10,000 TPD. For grinding raw materials, vertical roller mills have replaced ball mills, use of continuous homogenising silos for homogenisation of raw meal, use of pre-blending stockpile, roller presses and high-efficiency separators, electronic packing machines, bag loading machine and advanced process control and instrumentation are some of the major changes observed in cement plant and machinery manufacture.
The dry process cement plants are equipped with efficient pollution control measures to meet the stringent pollution control norms laid down by various state pollution control boards. Some of the pollution control equipments include fabric bag dust collectors, gravel bed filters, electrostatic precipitators, etc.
The mini cement plants are based on vertical shaft kiln technology or rotary kiln technology. The vertical shaft kiln is suitable for mini cement plants as low capacity plant fabricated by small workshops can be installed at a lower cost. Also, it requires less space and has lower maintenance and refractory cost. The rotary kiln plant is based on dry process with suspension pre-heater and can be designed indigenously.
