GRINDING INDUSTRIAL HEMP & CANNABIS

Industrial hemp or cannabis entering the milling chamber is impacted by hammers rotating at high speed. The bottom half of the milling chamber consists of a perforated screen. Interchangeable screens are available with holes ranging in size from as small as 0.6mm (less than 1/32”) to as large as 25mm (about 1”). As product swirls in the milling chamber, size reduction occurs rapidly and continuously.

POWERFUL SUCTION TRANSPORTS HEMP & CANNABIS

Hippo hammer mills incorporate a powerful material handling fan. In addition to moving milled product through the ductwork to your final catch container, the fan also performs the critical function of efficiently drawing milled product through the holes of the grading screen.

IDEAL FOR ALL EXTRACTION METHODS

Because they produce a full range of texture outputs, Hippo hammer mills are ideal for pre-extraction processing whether you’re using butane, ethanol or carbon dioxide. Typical screen sizes used are 20-25mm for butane, 6-15mm for ethanol, and 0.6-0.8mm for carbon dioxide extraction.

BIOMASS PRODUCTS STAY COOL

An additional benefit of the pneumatic transport system is that biomass products are kept cool throughout the size reduction process by the large volume of air being drawn through the mill. This continuous flow of outside air keeps your product virtually at room temperature at all times, eliminating quality loss.

BUILT-IN DUST FILTRATION

A cyclone collector removes 99% of your product from the mill’s air stream, dropping it into your container with almost all air flow removed. Air flow continues onward to the filter bags, where remaining fine dust is trapped, and 99.9% clean air exits. A separate HEPA filter can be used to remove extremely fine particles from your milling space.

RUGGED CONSTRUCTION

Milling chambers are constructed of high strength cast iron plates with bolted construction that eliminates common stress points to prevent cracking. After extended use, this method of construction allows fast, easy, on-site replacement of worn parts. Hippo hammer mills feature rigid hammers with reversible and replaceable tips of long wearing, impact and abrasion-resistant Bennox steel.

HIGH OUTPUT/LOW COST

Built for the demands of commercial and industrial grinding, Hippo hammer mills are fast, efficient and durable, and their low cost won't break your material processing budget.

*Output rate is based on dry corn for reference, and will vary substantially for other materials based on factors including density and frangibility.
**Rotor RPM is infinitely variable with optional VFD (variable frequency drive) for fine-tuning of speed and particle size.
***Most product will exit even finer than the size of the holes in the screen.
