The Pulverizer works in much the same way as a Macerator from Industrial Craft 2, but it uses Minecraft Joules instead of EU to pulverize things into a powder. It will also work noticeably faster than the Macerator, but slower than a Rotary Macerator.
It will turn one block of ore into two pulverized ore. They can then be smelted into ingots, effectively doubling your mining profit.
Unlike the Macerator, the Pulverizer has a chance to sometimes produce a byproduct in the Secondary Output slot. The energy cost for each operation will vary depending on which material is being processed, also unlike the Macerator.
The pulverized items are interchangeable with the dusts from IndustrialCraft 2.
The Pulverizer takes a Buildcraft or Thermal Expansion engine to operate, rather than IndustrialCraft 2 cables.
NOTE: The Pulverizer is compatible with the BC Producer.
