Description

Mammoth Hippo Hammer Mill with Motor

Please Note: Prices of many products are under unprecedented inflationary pressures now, and resupply continues to be very difficult with many delays. Factories are having trouble getting critical parts due to ongoing Covid-related supply chain disruptions, and overseas shipping costs passed “insane” weeks ago. In early 2021, we could ship a 40' container from overseas in for $5800. Currently it's $17,400 to $27,000. If gas had gone up as much, it would now cost over $200 to fill up a Honda Pilot. And the last change in container shipping rates was upward again. Our resupply lead-time for some goods has increased by 12 months. There are many other factors as well, and the bottom line is that retail goods prices will be going up, and availability will be going down. Soaring general inflation means your dollars are worth less daily, making needed goods more valuable than cash. PHG has Hippo hammer mills in stock now at old pricing (which we publish!), while our competitors build-to-order with months-long lead times and far higher prices (many more than double ours) that reflect steeply increased costs of steel and other commodities.

Hippo hammer mills rapidly grind a wide variety of materials from grain, beans, herbs and fibrous roots to minerals, plastics, glass, bone and recyclables. Materials enter the milling chamber and are impacted by hammers rotating at high speed. Size reduction occurs until particles can exit through the holes of a perforated screen covering the discharge. Interchangeable screens offer hole sizes ranging from 0.6mm to 25mm.

As a result of hammer milling, in addition to particle size reduction some materials (glass bottles and lobster shells, for example) experience a high degree of bulk reduction, creating storage and transport efficiencies.

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. 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.

In use across the U.S. and around the world, South-African made Hippo mills are available with horsepower ratings of 5 to 150 hp. The Hippo Mammoth hammer mill can be purchased with a 3-phase electric motor of 100, 125 or 150 horsepower. Some of the most common uses of the Hippo Mammoth hammer mill include grinding grains such as wheat and corn, grinding industrial hemp, and hemp waste disposal by grinding hemp to smaller size particles and blending with other non-hemp materials for mulch.

Hippo hammer mills feature rigid hammers with reversible, replaceable tips of long wearing, impact and abrasion-resistant Bennox steel. The screen is located in the bottom half of the hammer mill chamber, covering an arc of about 180°. Milled material exits the mill below the screen. For finer particle grinding and to aid the movement of finer particles thru the mill screen and away from the mill, a separate air transport system can be configured from the discharge of the mill. This air transport system is available as a separate purchase option and consists of enclosed duct work, a material handling blower fan driven by a separate electric motor, a material collecting cyclone, a rotary valve driven by an electric motor on the collecting cyclone, and a dust bag separator.

Stock interchangeable screens for the Hippo Mammoth hammer mill are available with hole sizes of 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, 1.6, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 20 and 25mm. The top half of the milling chamber swings open for full access to the hammers and screen, and screens can be changed out in just 30 seconds without tools.

Hippo mills are manufactured to high precision standards, with non-cast components cut by laser or plasma for excellent fit. High quality bearings are used, and lubricated with quality synthetic lubricant.

All Hippo mills are tested before shipping and are covered by a 1 year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Free test grinding: Pleasant Hill Grain has extensive milling experience and can make recommendations for a wide range of grinding needs. We can also test mill samples of your materials; please call 866-467-6123 or email to make arrangements.

*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.
