Automation solutions for lime and cement operations

Helping to achieve operational readiness

ANDRITZ helps lime and cement plants around the world bridge the gap between concept and production to achieve operational readiness – quickly, safely, accurately, and ahead of the curve.


The control system in a modern industrial facility touches every piece of equipment and instrument in the plant. Nothing will be conveyed, ground, classified, pumped, or dried until the plant’s control system is operationally ready. In short, control of the plant can mean the difference between profit and loss.

That is why ANDRITZ AUTOMATION has an engineering group that focuses on the design of electrical, control, and instrumentation systems. These disciplines typically account for a small portion of the total project budget, but their importance to the operation of a plant is paramount.

ANDRITZ structures the scope of supply to fit commercial needs, from engineering to engineering and equipment supply, to engineering, procurement and construction. Whatever the situation, we have the people, the patents, and the proven tools to ensure that the plant is operationally ready.


The ANDRITZ IDEAS simulator is the technology of choice for heavy industry. IDEAS has been used to help industrial facilities all over the world verify process designs, debug control logic, and train operators.

Advanced process control

The ANDRITZ patented, PID-replacement controller BrainWave is revolutionizing control at operations around the globe. We have helped producers large and small remove bottlenecks, reduce energy and chemical consumption, produce higher quality products more consistently, and lower production costs.
