As a result of the successful project management, support and execution of the first line, Ultracem had the con- fidence to stay with Gebr. Pfeiffer for supplying the second line as well. The initial OEM guarantee for Produc- tion Line One was as 65 tph but the plant was actually able to produce close to 100 tph. For Production Line Two, Ultracem wanted to duplicate the increased production levels. In order to keep within the safety parameters of the equipment, it was agreed to increase the size of both the gearbox and mill motor for each of the production lines. The only changes in scope between the first order and the second one were the increased capacity of the gear box (from 1,750 kw to 2,000 kw) and mill motor (from 1,750 kw to accommo- date up to 1,950 kw) and increasing the number of packing plant spouts to 14, up from the 8 initially installed on Production Line One. Current production rates consist of: Mill Production from Line One: • Structural Cement up to 70 tph. • General Use Cement up to 90 tph. Mill Production from Line Two: • General Use Cement up to 90 tph. To date, Ultracem is pleased with its average production rates as they con- tinue to expand their market share in the region.
