FCB_Horomill®

The FCB Horomill® is a breakthrough technology in bed compression grinding that enables producers to improve their grinding plant operation. In order to enhance the plants’ production capacity and optimize the plant maintenance, Fives has implemented significant technical development on its new generation of FCB Horomill®.

  • to reach mill size up to Dia. 5.0 m
  • to increase the production capacity
  • to improve maintenance

  • to increase the operation 
  • to reduce the wear rate
  • to smoothen operation
  • to offer an upgrade package for the existing mills

  • to handle dry products up to 20% moisture (raw mix, slag, pouzzolana)
  • to have a more flexible grinding unit
  • to optimize the FCB TSV™ Classifier efficiency by lowering its specific feeding load
  • to have a simple installation layout
  • A shell driven at supercritical speed
  • A roller applied on material thanks to hydraulic cylinders
  • A compact and reliable integrated device
  • An easy-to-maintain lining (shell liners and roller sleeve)

Customer benefits 

  • The lowest energy consumption: from 30% to 65% compared to ball mill, from 10% to 20% compared to vertical mill
  • The best product quality with lower clinker ratio
  • Zero water consumption
  • No need of grinding aid for blended cements or slags
  • Higher cement quality with lower Blaine 

 Technical advantages 

  • Flexible operation thanks to low residence time, change of type of product within 5 to 10 minutes without surge hopper
  • One unique machine suitable for cement, raw mix and slag grinding
  • Compact installation and simple layout
  • Production capacity non sensitive to the wear of lining – Low wear
  • Fully automatic operation of the whole plant

Applications

  • Cement raw meal
  • Cements (Portland and blended)
  • Blast furnace slag
  • Steel slag
  • Minerals (limestone, dolomite, anhydrite, etc.)
