Automation solutions for lime and cement plants

Helping to achieve operational readiness

ANDRITZ works with lime and cement plants to bridge the gap between concept and production, and helps them achieve operational readiness - quickly, safely, reliably, and ahead of the curve.


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

That’s why ANDRITZ has an engineering group that focuses on the design of the electrical, controls, 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.

We structure our scope of supply to fit commercial needs, from engineering to engineering and equipment supply, to engineering, procurement, and construction. Whatever your situation, ANDRITZ has the people, the patents, and the proven tools to ensure that a plant is operationally ready.


ANDRITZ’s IDEAS is the simulator 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.
