Products and services

Gebr. Pfeiffer offers products and services for modern material preparation. We have been a reliable supplier to the global building materials industry for 155 years now.
In addition to the innovative vertical mill technology, we offer a wide range of machines for classifying, drying, slaking and calcining such as ball mills, separators, dryers, lime hydrators and gypsum calcining mills. With our experience we are able to process clinker, slag, limestone, quicklime, gypsum, clay, solid fuels as well as a variety of other minerals.
Possible production quantities range from 1 t/h to over 1,000 t/h, with product finenesses of up to 10 µm.
The use of slag for the cement production is becoming more and more important worldwide. Since their market launch over ten years ago, Pfeiffer MVR mills have therefore also been increasingly used to grind this product. In combination with highest availability and ease of maintenance, the MVR mill offers low specific electrical energy consumption.
Coal mill

To this day, Pfeiffer has supplied more than 2200 vertical mills for coal and pet coke grinding to diverse industrial sectors. Among them the world's largest coal mill (100 t/h), which produces in Indonesia. Grinding, separation and drying are carried out inside the mill, whereby coal with a surface moisture of up to 35 % can be processed. These mills can also be operated inertly. The grinding principle and the highly efficient classifier ensure low electric energy consumption.
