What is a Hammer Mill?
A hammer mill is a particle size reduction machine that can grind and crush material using continual, high-speed hammer blows to shatter and disintegrate the material. The internal hammer mechanism is where the machine gets its name. Hammer mill grinders can be used as primary, secondary, or tertiary crushers for a wide variety of applications.
What is the Finished Product Size?
The finished product size depends on a few variables, including the number and size of hammers, the rotor speed, the setting of the grinding plate, and the size of the openings in perforated screens.
Hammer mills are typically used for crushing and grinding material to less than 10 US mesh. Learn more about size reduction options with our Particle Size Conversion Chart.
