IMPROVEST diaphragm turnkey project to Germany


The assembly and the commissioning of an IMPROVEST middle diaphragm has been carried out for the SCHWENK cement group in Germany.

The aim of this project is to improve the outlet mill’s cement production (CM) decreasing the load loss of the material to be milled during its passage through the diaphragm and increasing mill ventilation (diameter = 4.6 m).

To achieve this objective, the preceding diaphragm has been removed and a new IMPROVEST diaphragm with optimized and specific plate designs for this mill has been installed. A 10% production improvement is estimated.

In this turnkey project, Estanda has directed the cement mill assembly and the commissioning in addition to providing the diaphragm structure and the plates for the first and second chamber, with chrome alloys (Cr. 7.0% - 12.5%).

In the next months, an inspection to ensure its correct functioning will take place.
