FLSmidth: FLSmidth order with TRIBOMAX® - the latest innovation within wear solutions

PRESS RELEASE- For their Tehachapi plant located in California, USA, Lehigh
Southwest
Cement Company, has ordered an upgrade of their cement mill with a hydraulic
roller press pre-grinder with FLSmidth's latest innovation; the TRIBOMAX®
wear surface protection.

The upgrade is expected to increase the current cement grinding capacity at
the Tehachapi plant by 23% by installing and using the hydraulic roller press
for pre-grinding. The TRIBOMAX® wear solution will furthermore significantly
decrease operational cost.

TRIBOMAX® wear solution is the latest wear part innovation from FLSmidth. The
product excels by combining a unique material and an innovative use of a
welding technology (Plasma Transfer ARC). This unique combination has been
developed by FLSmidth. By applying the patented materials together with this
special welding technology, the rollers of the hydraulic roller press obtain
a built-in surface roughness instead of merely a smooth coating. The result
is a surface that is up to 15 times more wear-resistant than an unprotected
steel construction and several times stronger than an alternative wear
coating. TRIBOMAX® wear solution thereby offers a unique resistance against
tramp metal and oversize feed, extending wear life and reliability.

"Our customers focus on productivity; they want high utilization rates and
minimum downtime. Wear parts are one of the key components when it comes to
reducing overall maintenance cost, and wear solutions like TRIBOMAX® reduce
the total cost of ownership of the equipment considerably," says Executive
Vice President for the Cement Division, Per Mejnert Kristensen.

The contract is an 'Engineering-Procurement-Construction' (EPC) project
including engineering, a new clinker bin, Heavy Duty Roller Press HRP-C 1.25
with its auxiliaries, weigh feeder, set of belt conveyors, nuisance filters,
bucket elevators and new electrical room for this circuit.

Lehigh Southwest Cement Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lehigh Hanson,
Inc. and part of HeidelbergCement, the second largest cement producer in the
world.
