Combining unparalleled knowledge of grinding and pneumatic conveying over long distances and silo storage expertise with precise measuring and coal dosing technology - PCI systems bring together several of Claudius Peters individual technologies to provide a comprehensive turnkey solution, which in the steel industry, has become a technology in its own right.
