For years, a cement plant in Indonesia has experienced very rapid wear in its vertical mills. The mills are used for grinding hard limestone (41%), iron sand (34%), silica (24%) and clay (1%). The customer was facing high wear of its rollers and table segments compared to other plants within its group, which was affecting its annual maintenance costs and workers’ safety conditions. The customer had tried other Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) solutions from competitors prior to working with Magotteaux but it did not meet its expectations. The customer turned to Magotteaux to improve the lifetime of its wear parts, save on its annual budget and improve safety.
