All three plants of Cementos Moctezuma are equipped with state of the art technology to produce the best quality cement, in an important part of the production, we count with unique procedures and equipment that make us leaders in innovation.

 

The state of the art equipments used are:

 

  • • Glory Hole

Quarry extraction system, that allows us to look after the environment and reduce the visual impact as there is no fugitive dust. This system consists of a well at the foot of the extraction area where the material trucks are unloaded; hence the transportation is shorter (and there is also fuel saving). At the bottom of the well there is a breaking machine (avoids dust and environment noise) where the material is crushed, so that it can be transported by belts through a tunnel and sent to a warehouse.

 

  • • Gamma Metrics

Gamma rays continuous analyzer, that allows us to monitor minute by minute the raw materials mix, so that we can control the established guidelines and keep our quality levels on the raw mix; which once it is placed in the oven, gives a very stable process that allows us to produce and offer a cement with the highest standards of quality for the consumer.

 

  • • Horomill Mills

It is a horizontal roller mill of high efficiency and low consumption of energy that allows us a better uniformity in the quality of our products. On traditional mills, the average consumption of cement grinding is 40KWg/ton and 25 KWg/ton in raw flour grind.  On Horomill Mills, the average consumption is reduced up to 28 KWg/ton in cement and 13 KWg/ton in raw flour.

 

The technology employed in our plants results in considerable energy saving, as we consume the least electric power per produced ton as part of our commitment, respect and care for the environment.

 

Being committed with the environment as we are, we make big investments in non polluting systems with the objective of gathering the dust generated during the production process, so they can be reincorporated into the process and be re used. We also have greenhouses for the rescue and preservation of local species and waste water treatment plant.
