KHD solidifies its leading position in Turkish Market with the new COMFLEX® order from Batısöke
The BATI ANADOLU GROUP, Batısöke Söke Çimento Sanayi T.A.Ş., awarded KHD Humboldt Wedag a contract for engineering and delivery of equipment to increase its cement grinding capacity at its plant in western Turkey.
The contract to install a new COMFLEX® grinding system will increase the capacity of cement grinding unit no. 5, from 59 tph to 195 tph @ 3300 Blaine and save more than 12 kWh/t energy, allowing Batisöke to maintain their position as one of the most significant companies in this region.
KHD´s scope includes the engineering and delivery of mechanical and electrical equipment, as well as advisory services during erection and commissioning for the new COMFLEX SC16-3250. This will be KHD’s third COMFLEX grinding unit in Turkey, after Denizli and Kahramanmaras Cimento.
The core equipment to be designed and delivered by KHD, as specified in this contract, includes:
Clinker Grinding System / COMFLEX® SC16-3250
- Roller Press RPS 16-170/180 with ROLCOX® system for control and monitoring
- V-Separator, type VS 524, as static classifier
- High efficiency separator SEPMASTER, type SKS-VC 3250 as dynamic classifier
- System fan HKF 200/265
The concept suggested by KHD includes a new COMFLEX® system, in combination with the existing ball mill system. This concept, along with the numerous positive references regarding KHD roller presses in the Turkish cement industry, ultimately won the customer over. Additionally, the horizontal version of KHD’s static VS separator will be used, allowing for a significant reduction in the installation height of the COMFLEX® system.
With the installation of a COMFLEX® grinding system, in its newest design, BATISÖKE, will have a system that is equipped with the most advanced grinding technology in the market.
The commissioning of the new COMFLEX® system, in combination with the existing ball mill system, is planned for the end of 2014.
