Cement and clinker facilities with a capacity of over 5 million tonnes were put into operation. The design capacity of the plant - 2 thousand tons of dry mixes per month, reaching these indicators is scheduled for the end of 2015.

Speaking about changes in our policy, we’ve realised how sustainable development is important to us. Since the advent of the product - cement and concrete, in cement and concrete production we use natural resources. We understand that natural resources are exhaustive and should be used sparingly. Therefore, we have defined sustainable development as a strategic goal.

HOW CEMENT IS MADE AT
CEMENT COMPANY

The cement produced by heating clay and lime to ultra high temperature - 1450 ° C and above. As a result of the melting clinker granules are formed - the basis of any of the cement mixture.

CEMENT FROM
CLINKER

For obtaining of cement clinker is mixed with a few percent of gypsum and finely milled. Gypsum controls the speed of setting, it may be partially replaced by other forms of calcium sulfate. Some specifications are allowed to add other materials during grinding.

ENVIRONMENTAL
CONTROLS

Reducing the negative impact on the environment - a priority of environmental policy. The company has developed and implemented environmental programs for the improvement of ecological situation and reduction of emissions into the environment.

MANUFACTURING PROCESS

Production of clinker - the most complex and energy-intensive process. It requires a lot of capital and operational costs. This determines the maximum savings requirement of clinker, replacing it whenever possible by hydraulic additives and impurities.

Blasted rock which size of pieces is up to 1000 mm in diameter  are stowed by excavator on vehicles and sent to the factory.


2.

PREPARATION OF RAW MATERIALS FOR CALCINING

Preparation and mixing of the raw materials is carried out in the presence of water, and in dry - materials are ground and mixed in dry form.


3.

FIRING THE RAW MATERIAL (CLINKER PRODUCTION)

Firing the raw material mixture - center stage of cement technology. For firing used two types of furnaces - mine and rotating.


4.

WAREHOUSING, PACKING AND SHIPPING OF CEMENT TO THE CONSUMER

From silos cement is unloaded into special covered railroad cars. Part of it is packed in multilayer paper bags, 50 kg of cement in each.
