  • Patent number: 10722899
    Abstract: Provided is a vertical roller mill equipped with a rotary classifier for causing a plurality of classification blades provided above a rotary table and positioned around an axis to rotate about the axis, wherein: of a solid fuel pulverized by a roller, the rotary classifier guides solid fuel fine powder from an outer-circumferential-side space to an inner-circumferential-side space surrounded by the plurality of classification blades, and suppresses, by collision with the plurality of classification blades, an intrusion of solid fuel coarse powder into the inner-circumferential-side space; and each of the plurality of classification blades is shaped in a manner such that there is no interference between a scattering direction in which the coarse powder that collided with the classification blades scatters and an intake direction in which the fine powder is guided to the inner-circumferential-side space, and the scattering direction is oriented upward relative to a horizontal direction.
