Mill outlet temperature control for bowl mills and tube mills (FIGURE VIII/5.1-2). The coal mill's output temperature is kept at the correct level so that the coal supplied from the mill is entirely dry and at the desired temperature. In addition, if the temperature at the mill exit rises, cool air is blasted in to lessen the risk of fire. Finally, the operator can adjust the flow of water through the heater element to vary the mill outlet temperature.
The mill outlet temperature should be maintained within the range of 100-150 °F (38-65 °C) to ensure that only completely dry coal is discharged from the mill. If the temperature exceeds 150 °F (65 °C), heat will be transferred to the grinding media, which could cause overheating and possible damage or destruction of the mill. On the other hand, if the mill outlet temperature falls below 100 °F (38 °C), the coal will be wet and may cause operational problems when it enters the boiler.
The mill temperature can be adjusted by varying the amount of heat applied to the mill casing. This is done by changing the setting on the mill's thermostat. The mill's thermostat measures the temperature of the mill outlet gas. It shuts off the supply of heat when the temperature reaches 40 °F (4 °C), and turns it back on when it drops below 40 °F (4 °C). A second type of thermostat controls the flow of hot gases into the mill casing.
A temper mill's principal function is to improve the surface finish of steel goods. The grinding media in a temper mill are hard, flat discs called grits. These disks are mounted on a cylindrical drum, which is then rotated at high speed inside a housing. As the drum turns, the grits grind against the steel being treated.
The purpose of grinding or rough-cutting (as opposed to cutting or finishing) steel is to remove most of the metal from the surface while leaving enough material beneath the surface for the metal to retain its shape once removed from the grinder. This process is called "roughing" and it is important in order to obtain maximum hardness and toughness from the steel after heat treatment. Without roughing, the metal would be too soft to be useful. Also, without roughing, the metal would be so thin that it would be difficult to work with because you could see through it.
The type of steel used in tools will determine how they are finished. If the tool is intended to be hot-worked (i.e., worked after heating above room temperature), such as by welding, then it must be finished before welding or it will ruin the surface quality of the weld.
The technique is also used to calculate the moisture content of coal that has been equilibrated at 60% relative humidity (see 6. 7).

Coal is a fossil fuel that can be found on all continental shelves and islands around the world. It consists of large molecules called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that contain carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur. Coal is useful because it is able to release energy when burned; this allows us to do work with little effort. This form of energy is called thermal energy because it is transferred directly into heat when coal is burned. Burning coal does not cause any other forms of pollution except for carbon dioxide emissions.
Burning coal produces many pollutants including carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, fine particles, and sulfur dioxide. These pollutants may have long-lasting effects on human health and the environment. However, most of them can be reduced or eliminated by using modern pollution control devices.
The thermostat determines the temperature of the space or rooms to be heated. If the temperature falls below a certain threshold, the thermostat instructs the heating system to deliver more heat. During the heating season, the water in the boiler of a hot water system is maintained at around 180°F. The temperature of the water in a steam system can be adjusted by controlling the temperature of incoming water.
Heating systems use two main types of controls: automatic and manual. An automatic control turns on and off the heat according to a preset schedule. A manual control allows you to turn the heat on or off from outside the house. These are explained in more detail below.
The type of control used by your current system should be listed on its installation label or documentation. If it is not available, contact the manufacturer of your heater. They may have updated their equipment with a modern electronic control unit (ECU) that has integrated the two different types of controls into one programmable unit.
Even if your current system uses an automatic control, you can still adjust the temperature by using a manual control. This can be done from outside the house by setting the dial to "on" or "off". Or, from within the house by using a remote sensor or pad. Heaters with built-in radios receive their instructions from a controller located inside the house. These controllers often have LED displays for easy reading from a distance.
