Thanks to its expertise in comminution processes, Fives provides taylor-made grinding plants.

To offer the most adapted answer to Clients project requirements, Fives relies on a range of efficient proprietary technologies, such as the FCB Horomill®, the FCB B-mill, the FCB E-mill.

When combined into a closed circuit with the FCB TSV™ third generation air classifier, the FCB grinding equipment enhance drastically the plant performances, even for modernization or up-grading projects.

For specific productions involving moist material (raw material, natural or industrial mineral), the grinding plant is delivered with a FCB Flash dryer system or FCB Aerodecantor.

Material collection is achieved with high efficiency cyclones and/or TGT® or Sonair™ Filters, which are selected to best-suit process and layout requirements.

Material drying is achieved with Pillard HeatGen Systems, delivering the necessary hot gases to the grinding plant, capable of firing liquid, gaseous or pulverized solid fuels such as coal and pet-coke.  

Fuel handling and delivery to the Pillard HeatGen Systems is achieved using high reliability Pillard Fuel Systems.

From mechanical equipment to complete turnkey supply, including upstream and downstream packages, Fives designs, supplies and manages the whole project to meet Client's satisfaction.
