Mini Cement Plant

Product Name: Mini Cement Plant

Capacity: 100 – 700 TPD

Equipment: cement crusher, conveyor, preheater, rotary kiln, cement mill, etc.

Mini Cement Plant Features

Cement plants with a clinker capacity below 700tpd can be called mini cement plants or small cement plants. Mini cement plants are very popular among small and medium-scale cement manufacturing enterprises since they do not require very large cement production capacities.

Because of their small output capacities, the cement production process in mini cement plants is simpler. Compared to large and medium-sized cement plants, small cement plants do not need to install preheating kilns, the machinery required in each process is smaller, and they can use lower-cost vertical shaft kiln systems to produce cement. All of these features make mini cement plants easier to build and can be built at lower cost and shorter construction period.

Mini cement plants have the characteristics of high efficiency, high product quality, energy-saving, and high resource utilization, and meet the requirements of environmental protection.

The Advantages of Mini Cement Plant

Small Area Required

Mini cement plants are composed of low-yield equipment which is usually small-sized and covers less area. They can save a lot of land costs for the cement manufacturing enterprises. Small area coverage also leads to more flexibility in location choice. Cement plants can be built near mines where most large and medium-sized cement plants cannot be built, which means they can also help save a lot of raw material transportation fees.

Low Investment Cost

The investment cost of a mini cement plant is lower than that of a medium or large-scale cement plant. It is because that the price of cement manufacturing equipment is relative to their capacities. Cement equipment with higher capacities generally is more expensive. And because the construction process of mini cement plants is simpler, the labor cost is also lower than medium and large-scale cement plants.

Quick Building

The equipment used in mini cement production lines usually possesses small sizes, they are more convenient for transporting and assembly. So that the construction speed of mini cement plants is faster than that of large and medium-sized cement plants, which allows enterprises to start production earlier and benefit from the production faster.

Other Benefits

Small cement plants are easier to obtain production licenses and can promote local economic development and create more employment opportunities.

Main Equipment in Mini Cement Plant

Our mini cement plants are designed to adopt the new dry process for cement manufacturing. The equipment in our mini cement plants mainly includes cement crusher, conveying equipment, preheater, rotary kiln, and cement grinding mill.

Cement Crusher

The cement crusher is the key equipment for raw material crushing. Because the sizes of just mined limestone (raw material for most cement types) pieces are too big, we have to crush them into small particles for cement manufacturing. The cement crushers that can be used in mini cement plants are hammer crusher, jaw crusher, roll crusher, cone crusher, impact crusher, etc.

Conveyors in cement plant

Conveying Equipment

The conveying equipment is an indispensable auxiliary device for material transportation in mini cement plants. Conveying equipment used in mini cement plants include bucket elevator, overland conveyors, and feeders.

A cyclone preheater is an important machine in new dry process cement plants. In cement production, the preheater uses the flue gas in the tail flue of the kiln to preheat the air in front of the kiln to a certain temperature, generating a heating surface through the internal heat sink, so as to improve the heat exchange performance of the kiln and reduce the energy consumption.

Rotary kiln in a cement plant

Rotary Kiln

Rotary kiln is the most favorable cement kiln for new dry process cement plants, it is the place where the raw materials are calcined and burnt to cement clinker. The rotary kiln ensures that the raw materials are calcined into qualified clinker within the time of passing through, and achieves the purpose of high yield, high quality, and low energy consumption.

Clinker Cooler

The hot clinkers discharged from the rotary kiln must be cooled before they can be transported and further processed. Rotary coolers and grate coolers are two types of clinker coolers that are often used in the cement industry today. We recommend rotary coolers for mini cement plants, cause they are more cost-effective in the small-scale cement production business.

Ball mill & Vertical roller mill for cement plants

Cement Grinding Mill

The cement grinding mill is used in mini cement plants to grind the clinker from the cement kiln into fine powders. In our mini cement plants, the most used cement grinding mills are cement ball mills, roller presses, and vertical roller mills.
