thyssenkrupp Polysius Boosts Mountain Cement Production

Mountain Cement, part of Eagle Materials, is implementing the thyssenkrupp Polysius booster mill at its Laramie, Wyo., plant to increase grinding capacity. It’s the first booster mill system sold in the United States and one of the first worldwide.

The primary purpose of the mill is to improve clinker reactivity by generating a higher fraction of fines in the product. thyssenkrupp Polysius will provide site services and technical support for optimization and maintenance for two years. 

“Mountain Cement is always seeking opportunities to reliably serve both our long-standing and new customer relationships. This project will allow us to do so by upgrading our facility’s efficiency and long-term sustainability, as well as further enabling our transition to portland-limestone cement. We look forward to partnering with Polysius in the successful implementation of this project,” said Cesar Millan, vice president of operations at Mountain Cement.

Equipment deliveries are scheduled through late summer for a startup anticipated in the fall.
