Optimizing Cement Grinding with Vertical Roller Mill

Optimizing Cement Grinding with Vertical Roller Mill

Cement is the backbone of infrastructure development throughout the world, and as the global population grows, so does the demand for cement. As a key ingredient in concrete, cement helps build bridges, roads, highways, airports, and buildings of all sizes. With such importance, it is imperative that the cement grinding process is optimized to ensure high quality and reliable production.

One technology that has gained popularity in recent years is the vertical roller mill (VRM). This mill provides efficient grinding of any type of cement, including Portland cement, blended cement, and slag cement. It features a patented roller and table design and concrete mill stands instead of traditional, heavy steel structures. The OKTM Mill’s flexible design makes it an efficient cement grinding solution for all types of cement.

Optimizing cement grinding with VRM is based on the principle of selective grinding and wear in the mill, ensuring consistent grinding efficiency and energy consumption throughout the mill. The mill controls the material flow rate and the separator speed to provide accurate product particle size distribution. By adjusting the grinding pressure, grinding curved blades, and selecting the appropriate grinding parameters, vertical roller mill can optimize the cement particles size distribution, improving cement quality.

Vertical roller mill's advantages:

1. High grinding efficiency: save 20~30% power consumption compared with the ball mill. With the increasing of moisture content, it can save more and more electricity.

2. Strong drying capacity: dry and grind raw materials with moisture content as much as 15%.

3. Mutifunction: crushing, drying, grinding, separating and conveying.

4. Low noises and little dust: no direct contact between the grinding rollers and grinding disc, so metallic impact is avoided and its noises is 20~25 decibels lower.

5. Big capacity: grinding coarse powder at low temperature can achieve large production capacity.

Vertical roller mill’s disadvantages:

Despite its vertical grinding layout, the vertical roller mill’s footprint is smaller compared to traditional ball mills. However, the roller mills got is own limitations. The overall cost of this instrument is slightly higher. It requires higher maintenance too. The system is slightly complex in its operation when compared to ball mills​.

Vertical Roller Mill In Cement Industry

Over the last three decades, the vertical roller mill has become the preferred mill for grinding of raw materials. The grinding efficiency of the vertical roller mill combined with an ability to dry, grind and classify within a single unit gives the vertical roller mill a decided advantage over a ball mill system. However, despite these benefits, applications of the vertical roller mill for cement grinding are less prevalent.

In cement production, vertical grinding mill shows its remarkable advantages and features, which is why vertical grinding mill for cement produced by the ZK Corp has been sold nationwide and exports to more than 30 countries and regions.

However, if you want to process a finer powder, you can also choose a vertical roller mill. At this time, we need to adjust the relative position according to the size of the particle size by adjusting the position of the vertical roller mill rocker. We are able to optimize the grinding efficiency of vertical roller mill for cement with the help of such equipment and technology.

Overall, vertical roller mill is a perfect solution for all types of grinding operations, such as coal grinding, energy-saving, grinding cement, industrial minerals, and building materials. It has larger production capacity, lower power consumption, stable operation and long service life of wearing parts. It is ideal grinding solution for better control of product fineness, high level of availability of the mill system, and suitability for grinding all kinds of raw materials such as clinker, slag, cement, and raw coal.
