How Does a Hammer Mill Work?
Hammer mills feature a set of rotating discs mounted on a central shaft. Each disc has several rods running through it, each with heavy steel hammers connected to the rods. The discs can rotate, and as they pick up speed, the hammers rotate outward from the rods toward a drum that surrounds the disc assembly.
Raw materials are dropped in from the top of the assembly, and as they fall between the outer drum and the hammers, the hammers impact the raw material and crush it. A screen in the drum allows particles that have been sufficiently crushed to fall through the bottom of the drum to a waiting container or conveyor belt for further processioning or packaging.
Our hammer mills are designed for longevity. We can break up electric motors, transformers, meatballs, green boards, and much more.

What Are Hammer Mills Used For?
Hammer mills can be used for a variety of purposes, depending on the industry. They can be used to break up soil, rocks, and mineral deposits to create a product of uniform consistency, such as in the production of sodium bentonite waterproofing. In the food industry, they can be used to process especially tough grains or plant materials, such as flour from mesquite beans.
