thyssenkrupp Polysius, a subsidiary of Germany-based thyssenkrupp, has delivered a Polysius booster mill to Mountain Cement’s Laramie grinding plant in Wyoming. The Eagle Materials subsidiary will take delivery of further ancillary equipment, including material handling, process gas management and machine protection systems, throughout mid-late 2023. The supplier said that the mill will help to increase the Laramie plant’s flexibility. It will also provide site services and technical support for optimisation and maintenance for two years after commissioning, also slated for 2023.
thyssenkrupp Polysius’ project manager Matthew Burchfield said “This is a very important and interesting project for thyssenkrupp Polysius. This is the first booster mill system sold in the US and one of the first booster mills worldwide. We are tasked with a very tight engineering and supply schedule. thyssenkrupp Polysius is working closely with Mountain Cement and its engineering teams.”
