Shah Cement’s vertical roller mill world’s largest

The mill in Muktarpur sets a Guinness World Record

Shah Cement Industries has set a Guinness World Record for commissioning the world’s largest vertical roller cement mill. Vertical roller mills are used to grind materials into extremely fine powder.

The FLSmidth OK81-6™ vertical mill was manufactured by FLSmidth of Denmark.

It has a grinding table 8.08 metres (26 feet 6 inches) in diameter and six rollers, each 2.64 metres (8 feet 7 inches) in diameter, said the Guinness World Records in its website.

Set up in Shah Cement’s Muktarpur plant in Munshiganj, the grinder can produce 15,000 tonnes of cement per day and 60 lakh tonnes per year, the company said in a press release yesterday.

Shah Cement Industries is a concern of Abul Khair Group, a business conglomerate in Bangladesh.

The group’s brand and marketing director, Naushad Chowdhury, said the vertical roller mill was set up to expand the cement maker’s capacity, produce customised cement for mega development projects and “ensure consistent high quality in every bag” of cement.
