Hammer mill

March 1, 2007




Hammer Mill Model 141 from Munson reduces friable and fibrous materials into uniform particle sizes ranging from 20 to 300 mesh. Centrifugal force causes pivoting hammers to stand at 90-degrees to the rotating shaft, throwing material against breaker plate ridges in the feed section, and then against perforated bed screens through which sized materials exits.  The shaft, integral hammer discs, disc pins and hammers are driven by a 75-hp motor at 1,800 to 4,000 rpm.
