HOW HAMMER MILLS WORK
« on: March 21, 2019, 03:19:13 AM »

SBM hammer mills utilize a central rotating shaft, fitted with several “hammers” affixed to pivots on the shaft. As the shaft spins, the hammers are swung via rotational energy, causing them to collide with the material, breaking it up into smaller particles.
Hammer mills are flexible, and can be used in a variety of applications. Because of their heavy-duty construction and high capacity processing capabilities, hammer mills are most commonly utilized in mineral agglomeration and fertilizer production applications.
The diagram below illustrates the placement of a hammer mill in a typical pelletizing process where the hammer mill is used in the breakdown of oversize pellets. In certain low-energy impact situations where the hammer mill is intended to break down raw
material to reach ideal particle size distribution, the hammer mill would simply be placed at the beginning of the process.
