What is a Hammer Mill?
A hammer mill is a particle size reduction machine. These machines grind and crush material using continual, high-speed hammer blows. This internal hammer shatters and disintegrates the material. Mills can be primary, secondary, or tertiary crushers, allowing for a wide variety of applications.
What is the Finished Product Size?
The finished product size depends on a few variables of the machine:
Number and size of hammers
Setting of the grinding plate
Size of the openings in the perforated screens
Hammer mills are often used for crushing and grinding material to less than 10 US mesh. Learn more about size reduction options with our Particle Size Conversion Chart..
