These beater wheel mills are used to pulverise the crude lignite needed to generate steam. Hot flue gas is sucked into the beater wheel mill to dry the coal. While the coal is being pulverised, the coal dust is mixed with the flue gas, resulting in a high drying efficiency. The lignite/flue gas mixture is blown to the pulverised coal burner
The cross beater mill Pulverisette 16 is universally used in the chemical and ceramic industries; in mining and metallurgy, and in agriculture for the preparation of soil samples.
