Recognized as the Winner for Energy Efficiency:
CalPortland — Mojave Cement Plant, Mojave, California
The CalPortland Mojave Cement Plant energy team has been active in modifying and upgrading their vertical roller mill (VRM). Intent on increasing the energy efficiency of the VRM, a recent upgrade was performed on the mill separator and the addition of a supervisory process control system. Additional testing led the team to address the potential of mill overflow and shutdown by adding additional modifications including a bottom hopper cone on each of the cyclones and a replacement of the mill fan housing.
