Estanda achieve its first turn-key engineering project for the cement sector

04-04-2014

Fundiciones Estanda has expanded its product catalogue with the completion of two innovation plans developed in recent years.

The research activity of the Basque company has been pursued through the creation of a higher value-added range for the cement sector whose the first commercial operations will be completed in the current year.

The entry of Estanda in the clinker pre-grinding systems engineering appears as one of the highest strategic activity of its technological plan. The company has been involved during three years in the aim to offer more add value to its traditional activity of manufacturing of castings; this action has been completed with its first order acquisition which will be developed in Russia with a value exceeding 1 million euros.

The importance of this plan is also directly impacting the Basque auxiliary industry. The system designed, a comprehensive system for pre-grinding of clinker is structured around a central element, vertical shaft impact crusher incorporating new designs and materials in the anvils and rotor shaft, but the rest of the equipments will be outsourced to third parties such as conveyors suppliers, suctions and filtering equipment, elevators, vibrating shake-out systems. Estanda solution is adapted to the lines with pregrinding capacity between 30 and 120 tons/hour with the function of grind cooled clinker for its introduction into the mill’s cement with less and more homogenous granulometry. These systems reduce the energy consumption of the overall process improving the efficiency and the productivity.
