What is a Hammer Mill Used For?
A hammer mill is a particle size reduction machine. After the material is fed into the machine, the hammer mill uses its continual high-speed hammer to grind and crush the material into smaller pieces.
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
- Rotor speed
- The settings of the grinding plate
- Size of the openings in the perforated screens
Mills are often used for crushing and grinding material to particles smaller than 10 US mesh, which is less than 0.08” in size. Learn more about size reduction options with our Particle Size Conversion Chart.
