CEMEX is the third largest cement producer worldwide, producing 80 million metric tons of cement annually. The company operates over 60 cement production plants and is the world’s largest producer of white cement. The Fairborn facility consists of one vertical roller mill for the raw grinding, one fifteen-foot diameter kiln and one 5,500 horsepower finish mill. Cemex implemented a project on a finish mill at the Fairborn plant, supporting the CEMEX philosophy of continuous innovation. CEMEX conducted a pilot project at its Fairborn plant to evaluate the operational and economic benefits of Model Predictive Control (MPC) technologies. MPC was deployed on the finish mill to maximize finish mill output while maintaining process quality constraints.
