Cement plant motor up to 13.8 kV and 25 MW

Cement plant motor manufacturing is one of our main product focuses. Cement mills, fans, shredders - in the production of cement, particularly large and efficient motors are required for the most diverse processes. MENZEL offers individual motor solutions for all applications in the cement industry up to 13.8 kV and 25 MW.  

Thanks to our many years of experience in the manufacturing of cement plant motors, we are the partner of choice for many cement mills operators all over the world. We offer large low-, medium- and high-voltage motors for various industrial sectors. Cement plants represent a particularly exciting challenge here: continuous use, highest performance requirements, high levels of dust, extreme ambient temperatures or installation altitudes. Where heavy masses of raw material are being transported, crushed, grinded and burned, the highest demands are placed on our cement plant motors.

Typical cement plant motor applications

MENZEL cement plant motors are used for example as:

  • Main cement mill drive
  • Ball mill drive
  • Vertical mill drive
  • Raw mill drive
  • Crusher and shredder drive
  • Blower and fan drive
  • Belt drive

As the following case study from Canada show, in many cases, we can assist in the short term, if end customers have particularly challenging demands.

Case Study: Spare slip ring motor for a cement plant in Canada

Menzel was to supply a spare slip ring motor for a cement plant in Canada and had to meet very exacting requirements. This was the third order of motors that this Canadian system integrator has recently placed at MENZEL. The new slip ring motor must be able to replace three existing crusher motors in case of a failure. To ensure smooth commissioning at the installation site, which is characterized by very tight space restrictions, Menzel's project manager took the measurements in Canada himself.

Menzel chose a 4.5 MW slip ring motor from stock and built an extended shaft. Furthermore we fitted special adapter plates with mounting holes for all three locations as well as brackets for plug and play mounting of vibration sensors for condition monitoring. The custom-made adapter plates were made in our in-house welding shop, which allows flexible production of special components and custom-made welded designs at all times. In addition, the terminal box of this spare slip ring motor was fitted with long feeder cables to facilitate the third-party connecting-up.

Through our many years of experience in the manufacturing of cement mill motors, we are familiar with a wide variety of requirements and can advise customers from the industrial cement sector around the world. MENZEL electric motors are being operated in numerous industrial plants, not only cement plants. Further reference projects from the industrial cement sector and others can be found here.
