In 2020 – due to the decades of grinding the abrasive material – the decision had to be made to replace the existing mill or to subject it to a modernisation measure. Here, the customised modernisation offer from Gebr. Pfeiffer proved to be the significantly more economical solution. Gebr. Pfeiffer therefore supplied a new mill housing and new bearing shells for the plain bearings, so that the mill can continue to produce for many decades to come without any loss of throughput or significant downtime. The experienced staff of Gebr. Pfeiffer took over the smooth supervision of the installation. At the customer’s request, the conversion itself was carried out almost entirely by the company’s own personnel. Detailed task descriptions provided by Gebr. Pfeiffer within the framework of schedules offered additional assistance. Within two weeks, the modernisation of the mill was completed and efficient production was secured for many more years to come.
