n A machine similar to a two-roll mixing mill, operated with rolls very close together to crush undispersed ingredients and hold them in the bite of the rolls for removal and discarding when the mass has passed through. Refiner rolls are shorter and have a much greater diameter than mixing rolls, and are operated at a higher surface speed ratio to provide more grinding effect and classification.
