Hormozgan Cement Company (Public Joint Stock) was established as a private joint stock company on 17 Jan., 1983. The legal personality of the company was changed from private joint stock to public joint stock, on basis of the resolution of extraordinary general meeting dated 17 July 1999. Presently the legal head office of the company is located at No. 37, after Mina Sq., Behrooz Str., Madar Sq, Mirdamad Blvd., Tehran.
The object of the company’s activity, in accordance with Article 3 of the articles of association, is creation and establishment of cement manufacturing factories and its affiliated industries as well as exploration, exploitation and operation of all mines required by this industry.
Under the operation license No. 10011 dated 25 Nov., 2002, issued by the Industries & Mines Organization of Tehran Province, the annual production
capacity is equivalent to 1,800,000 tons of different types of cement in three operating shifts.
For production of cement in the factory, main raw materials such as “Maren”, lime ore and iron ore from Haematite type, are used. Upon completion of ignition operations in mines and supply of raw materials, the materials are crushed in the stone-cracking department and are stored in the mixture saloon.
The materials stored in the mixture saloon will enter the silo and after adding the iron ore (Haematite) and lime ore with high purity to it (in sufficient quantity) they will enter the rolling mill and after crushing, they will be transferred to homogenization silo. The powdered raw materials, after exit from homogenization silos, will enter the pre-heater and after calcination operation, will enter the rolling furnace for annealing operations and in the heat existing in the furnace, chemical reactions related to formation of phases will take place and the clinker will be formed.
The temperature of the hot clinker will be reduced by the cooler and then it will enter the clinker silo and thereafter some additives such as plaster ore, Pozzolan, lime ore, etc., will be added to it and it will enter the bullet mill. The produced cement will be stored in cement silos and will be delivered to the customers in bulk or envelopes.
The products of this company are presently Portland cement, type 1-425, type 2 and Portland Pozzolan cement. Having regard to the needs of the customers, all types of grey cement are also available.
