Cement Grinding Technology

An overview of state-of-the-art grinding technology and optimisation approaches.
Target Group:
Process engineers with experience in cement manufacturing, R&D engineers
The energy consumption arising from the grinding of raw material and cement has been successfully reduced in the cement industry over many years, but increasing cement fineness and the diversity of the product portfolio have made further optimisation a challenging task. Today there are various different grinding technologies in use. Existing ball mills often offer high optimisation potential with regard to the ball charge, filling level or separator operation, but the operation of high pressure grinding aggregates like the VRM or HPGR is also linked to a variety of challenges including vibration, particle size distribution or dehydration. In this context the seminar will give an overview of the existing cement grinding technologies and practical approaches towards their optimisation. The examination of mill systems, the determination of key performance indicators and case studies will also be discussed. The seminar includes a visit to the CIMALUX cement plant in Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg.
