Case story: Cimentas-Izmir plant

Cimentas-Izmir Cimento wanted to increase the clinker output of its FLSmidth kiln from 2,300 to 3,000 tpd, at a down-time not exceeding 83 days. Increasing the raw milling capacity was essential to the project, and incorporation of a TUMS ball mill in the milling circuit ensured that proven technology – employed in a new way – was used to solve the issues relating to drying and pre-grinding of the additional raw materials. Selecting a ball mill for pre-grinding instead of any other crushing machine also ensured that normal wear-related operational down-time would be kept at a minimum. The actual kiln stoppage lasted 82 days. The kiln production increased by 1,000 tpd, exceeding the original target of 700 tpd.
