After having ordered seven Loesche Vertical Roller Mills for the grinding of cement raw material, coal and clinker for the project Ibese Line 1+2, which are operating successfully since 2010, Dangote ordered five more Loesche Mills for the grinding of cement raw material and clinker for the project Ibese 3+4 in 2012.

Once again Dangote chose a Loesche Mill for its new project Ibese 7 - an LM 63.3+3 cement mill for the grinding of clinker.

Dangote Ibese ordered a Loesche Vertical Roller Mill of the type LM 63.3+3 for its cement plant. Materials to be ground will be clinker with components such as gypsum and limestone.

The product rate of clinker type CEM I will be 310 t/h at 3,200 Blaine while the product rate of clinker type CEM II will be 295 t/h at 4,500 Blaine. The gearbox capacity for the LM 63.3+3 will be 6 700 kW.

Additionally to the mill, Loesche will deliver a hot gas generator of the type LF 20 (burner dual-fuel HFO / NG) and all the complete mechanical equipment between the mill’s pre-bins and the product bucket elevator.

Also in Loesche’s scope of supply are the complete electrical equipment and automation, the building steel structure as well as the detail engineering of the civil works. The latest generation Classifier type LDC will also be delivered by Loesche.

Commissioning is scheduled for end of April 2014.
