Dry milling and classification for building materials.

Conventional and special cements, cement admixtures, rheology activators, etc. Building materials are an integral part of our daily lives and are used in a wide variety of industrial applications. Since 1933, the POITTEMILL Group has been a specialist in the dry processing of building materials for cement producers and installers.

Depending on the product, the desired fineness and the particle size distribution, the POITTEMILL Group offers different products and services. For the processing of building materials, the choice is generally made for the pendulum mill, which is ideal for high throughput and low energy requirements. The impact crusher and hammer mill also offer many advantages for these applications.

The POITTEMILL Group offers a wide range of techniques for all stages of building materials processing from pre-crushing to ultra-fine crushing and high-performance classification meeting the standards of today’s and tomorrow’s industry.

Process testing and development

The POITTEMILL Group has its own scientific laboratory as well as a test center which is unique in France. It is in this test center that the dialogue between customers and the technical teams begins, but it is also here that detailed analyses of their raw materials are carried out to obtain complete information on the execution of the task set.

Our development and engineering team is always available to help you explore new and innovative processes and applications.

Our testing facilities offer exceptional opportunities to test ingredients, machines, parameters, and processes, whether in the laboratory, pilot or industrial scale, to ensure you achieve the necessary product quality and operating efficiency.
