EPC Project: Gebr. Pfeiffer delivers Complete Coal Grinding Plant to Egypt


BMIC, headquartered in Cairo, awarded Gebr. Pfeiffer a contract for a complete coal grinding plant on a turnkey basis for its cement plant in Assiut, Egypt.


Gebr. Pfeiffer, together with its global and local partners, suppliers and subcontractors, is responsible for the complete scope, including engineering, supply of plant parts, imported or locally manufactured, construction and commissioning of the plant.


Detailed description of scope:



From raw coal storage to injecting pulverized coal into the kiln burner (including upgrading the kiln and calciner burners) – everything comes from a single source: Gebr. Pfeiffer. The core of the plant is the Pfeiffer MPS 2800 BK coal mill designed to grind 50 t/h coal to a fineness of 12% R 0.090 mm as well as 25 t/h pet coke to a fineness of 3% R 0.090 mm. The innovative mill design allows coal to be ground with a feed moisture of up to 15% and pet coke with a moisture of as much as 8%.


As the world’s leading expert in coal mills Gebr. Pfeiffer offers all necessary safety concepts for the grinding of explosive feed material.


Safety concepts and standards:


The plant will start operation in the first quarter of 2018.
