For cement plant owners today, reliability and durability of equipment are top of mind. Any technology investment needs to deliver on plant production goals, now and in the future. This is particularly true for crushing equipment, which bears the brunt of constant impact and wear as it is knocked around by the very materials it is designed to process. Here, there are clear economic advantages of increasing wear parts’ lifetime and making maintenance easier.

DESMI’s upgraded test bed technology is a vast improvement in performance testing. Once a pump is secured on its skid, an auto-cycle fills the pump cylinder with liquid, pushes the air out and automatically tests various points on a pre-determined pump curve. All the while, two viewing monitors provide a continuous and complete readout of the test results.

As cement producers continually seek reduced energy consumption and lower maintenance costs, two emerging trends are changing the face of cement production: the use of grinding stations that support variable feed materials and more widespread use of vertical roller mills (VRMs).
