Cement Industry

Engineering for the cement industry

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, as a competent partner, helps its customers find the optimal solution for every single plant project, ensuring a profitable low-energy cement production, while saving resources. In view of ever-increasing throughput rates, it is of the utmost importance to dimension correctly the system and machine components that are subject to extreme mechanical stress. Our company possesses a high level of know-how in this field.

Cement Production - processes and cement plants

The efficient manufacturing of high-grade cement products requires more than just a stringing-together of machines and individual processes. For our clients we offer the entire process chain from a single source: from the quarry to the cement loading facility, and from engineering, procurement, erection and commissioning to after-sales service. Thanks to the application of ultramodern production processes our plants save resources and protect the environment and can guarantee plant owners maximum productivity and economy of operation.

Our know-how at a glance

From raw material preparation…

1. Crushing
The raw material is crushed to the size of coarse gravel

2. Interim storage and blending
The raw material is stockpiled or homogenized in blending beds

3. Dosing
A dosing device feeds the raw material to the mill in the right quantity and composition

4. Grinding
The raw material is ground to the required fineness in a raw mill and is simultaneously dried

5. Homogenizing
The raw meal is homogenized and stored in silos to be subsequently fed at a controlled rate to the preheater

… via clinker manufacturing…

6. Preheating and calcining
The raw meal is preheated and calcined in a cyclone preheater with calciner

7. Burning
The raw meal is burned in a rotary kiln at a temperature of roughly 1500°C to form clinker

8. Cooling
Most of the heat given off during clinker cooling is recovered for use in the production process

… to cement manufacturing

9. Storage
The clinker store is the source of supply for the cement grinding process

10. Grinding
Additives are fed in during the clinker grinding process to achieve the required type and grade of cement

11. Storage, packing and loading
The finished cement is transferred to storage silos. Finally, it is loaded into bulk transporters or bags.
