Description

Hippo No. L63: Hammer Mill Grinder

Hippo hammer mills rapidly pulverize a wide range 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 #L63 hammer mill is equipped with a 75 hp, 3-phase electric motor.

Hippo hammer mill grinders feature rigid hammers with 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 #L63 hammer mill grinders 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 us at (866) 467-6123 or email to make arrangements.

The price above is for the Hippo #L63 hammer mill, 460V/3PH 75HP motor and motor starter. 

Because of the range of setup options available, orders for Hippo hammer mills are taken by phone. Please call for pricing on collecting cyclone and dust bag systems, screens, crate fee and shipping costs by truck or freight forwarder.

*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.
