Optimising raw material grinding

Our raw mill evaluation and optimisation program covers examination of the raw material grinding process from the mill feed to raw meal homogenisation. An FLSmidth specialist will evaluate the grinding process and installation by analysing key areas, such as:

  • Mill feed transport
  • Addition of corrective materials
  • Drying, grinding and separation
  • Energy consumption
  • Auxiliary heating systems
  • Dust transport to silo
  • Quality control methods
  • Dust emission control


These findings are compiled in a report that gives an evaluation of the raw material grinding process at the plant, pinpoints issues of special concern and recommends action for optimisation.

Optimising cement grinding

FLSmidth’s cement mill evaluation concentrates on areas relevant to optimising the cement grinding process, including:

  • Clinker blending
  • Addition of gypsum and additives
  • Grinding aids
  • Clinker grinding
  • Separation
  • Cooling
  • Energy consumption
  • Cement quality
  • Transport arrangements to the silo
  • Dust emission control


These findings are compiled in a report that gives an evaluation of the cement grinding process at the plant, pinpoints issues of special concern and recommends action for optimisation.
