Besides tailings, the solid waste discharged from iron and steel enterprises is mostly smelting slag, mainly including blast furnace slag, slag, steel slag, iron alloy slag, etc. The smelting slag storage not only occupies a large amount of land, but also causes certain environmental pollution, and causes harm to the health of the public. Therefore, the comprehensive utilization of steel slag to achieve its reduction, reuse and harmlessness is very necessary for the sustainable development of the steel industry.

Background of the Project

Background of the Project
Blast furnace slag has achieved a discharge-use balance in industrially developed countries, mainly used as a raw material for slag cement and production of agricultural fertilizer. In order to solve the problem of comprehensive utilization of blast furnace slag, after long-term investigation, POSCO finally chose to cooperate with our company CHAENG to build the 300,000t/y GGBS Plant (Ground granulated blast-furnace slag plant).

Project Introduction

Until this article is published, the 300,000t/y GGBS Plant uses GRMS33.31 vertical roller mill as the host machine, with the design yield of 45t/h, the actual output of 50t/h, and the specific surface area of 4200cm2/g. The heat of hot air furnace is 8,000,000kcal/h, and the water content of the finished product is less than 1%. The equipment operates well and every indicator is normal, fully meeting the production requirements of the customers. It is reported that the 300,000t/y GGBS Plant project in Indonesian built by CHAENG cooperating with POSCO is under construction and expected to be put into production in July. Please follow up on the official website later.

Project Introduction
Project Introduction

The finished slag micro-powder will be used as ceramsite to improve soil, so as to increase the yield and quality of crops, and also will be sold as the cement additive.

Equipment Technology

The 300,000t/y GGBS Plant for Korea POSCO is totally constructed by CHAENG, from material testing, equipment production to the formal production reaching designed standards.

Process introductionProcess introduction

Piles of slag are taken and fed by the forklift truck, and conveyed by a belt conveyor. During the process of conveying, slag raw material will be iron-removing and screening through magnetic separator and vibrating screen, and then go to the weigher cabin, elevator and last to the vertical roller mill for grinding process. The ground granulated slag powder is drying by the hot air supplied by hot blast furnace, and with the help of hot air, the powder selecting is made in the separator. The qualified slag powder particles will be collected by bag dust collector, then conveyed to and stored in the silos by the air slide and elevator.

Process introduction

Host machineHost machine

The host machine in this project is GRMS33.31 vertical roller mill with an annual output of 300,000 tons. Vertical roller mill produced by CHAENG can meet the GGBS Plant of 200,000 tons to 1.5 million tons per year. CHAENG currently has more than 100 customers, 80% of which are GGBS Plants with annual capacity of 1 million tons, 600,000 tons, and 300,000 tons. The parameters of these three models in terms of equipment selection and energy consumption are displayed for reference:

Process highlightsProcess highlights


POSCO selected the CHAENG GRMS33.31 vertical roller mill. The process is designed as “One vertical roller mill, two purposes” for the customer's demands, with two feed openings. Different materials can use different feed openings, and the different material conversion takes only 40 minutes, thus one production line can grind two kinds of materials.


GGBS plant system adopts DCS central control system, all operation parameters can be adjusted in the middle control, the system response is fast, and the operation is simple and easy.


CHAENG has a large steel casting base with all the mainframe and spare parts self-supporting. We can guarantee the delivery process, and provide fast and high quality service for our cunstomers in customizing spare parts.
