The ordinance total also includes an estimated $10,000.00 for repairs that may be required after disassembly and inspection.

The pulverizer roll is just one piece of the roller assembly that rolls on top of the coal and grinds it into very small pieces the size of dust. Inspection and repair is necessary to assess the condition of the shafts, raceways, bearings, keys and rolls and determine what needs repaired and/or replaced. The rolls (tires) will also be brought back to factory specification (diameter and shape).
