German term or phrase: Exakt Walze
"Nach der vollständigen Mischung in den Rührwerken werden die Ansätze solange über die jeweiligen Dreiwalzenstühle (*Exakt Walze* 25 für die Ansätze bis 5 kg und *Exakt Walze* für die Ansätze bis 25 kg) gegeben, bis mindestens 80 % der Kristalle eine Größe von weniger als 100 2m haben."

Inspection report - googling has been unfruitful.

English translation:precision roller mill
Explanation:
Sounds like some sort of grinding machine to reduce the size of the crystals down. Walze are normally rollers, so I suspect that this is roller based.

agree  Steffen Walter: In Jonathan's case, "Dreiwalzenstühle (Exakt Walze 25...)" should thus be translated as "three-roll mills (Exakt mill 25...)".
