In addition to usual fineness analyses Magotteaux has different tests to characterize the products to grind. Among these:
The grindability test allows determining with precision the specific energy to grind cement to certain fineness.
The breakability test developed by Magotteaux gives the hardness of clinker. The first compartment ball charge is directly influenced by this result.
The separation test is performed with a small scale XP4®i in case there are some doubts on the material separability.
