Ball mills operations and maintenance seminar

Learn how to optimise your ball mill systems in this 5-day training seminar focused on best practices for operations and maintenance (preventive and reactive) to achieve energy savings, reduced maintenance costs and overall improved productivity of the ball mill systems.

 

Ball mills are used for many applications in cement production: raw meal grinding, coal and petcoke grinding as well as finish cement grinding.  Each of these systems have their similarities and differences. This ball mill seminar is designed to train your personnel on the overall technology, operation and maintenance of your ball mill cement grinding system. 

 

The seminar focuses on the latest best practices for the operation and maintenance of ball mill systems to allow for optimal cement production, energy savings, reduced maintenance costs as well as the continuous improvement of the overall equipment operation.

 

The course offers classroom instruction from our FLSmidth ball mill specialists and case studies based on real situations at different ball mill installations. Working sessions are scheduled to allow for a thorough study of the design and function of the main equipment, including but not limited to the latest methods for optimisation and possibilities for upgrades and modernisation of the current systems and operations.

 

Maintenance training is focused on routine preventive maintenance to minimize downtime in ball mill systems, as well as developing preventive maintenance programmes and troubleshooting techniques to quickly identify and fix problems.

 

Beyond what you will learn about your ball mill systems, this seminar provides excellent networking opportunities with our specialists as well as your counterparts from the cement industry.
