Meadows hammer mills combine practical design and proven reliability with simplicity and economical cost. The Meadows hammermill has been in continuous production for over forty years. They're in use across the U.S. and around the world, in applications ranging from processing grain for livestock feed to grinding glass bottles for recycling.
The Meadows hammermill for sale here operates by impact action and will pulverize most dry, free-flowing materials. Material fed into the hammer mill from the top falls into the grinding chamber. The material is contacted by a series of hardened steel hammers rotating at high speed. The material is ground by repeated contact with these hammers, contact with the walls of the grinding chamber, and particle to particle contact. The material remains in the hammer mill grinding chamber until particles become small enough to escape by passing through the perforated screen that covers the bottom half of the grinding chamber. Interchangeable hammer mill screens are available with hole diameters from 1/64" to 2", to allow for fine or coarse grinding of most products.
Bottom-discharge (gravity discharge) hammer mills may be used when the product to be processed will be processed to a consistency 1/16” or larger. Mills must be equipped with a material handling fan (air conveyor) when the product will be processed to a consistency 3/64” or smaller. The bottom-discharge hammer mills are limited to the following interchangeable screen sizes; 2”, 1-1/2”, 1”, 3/4”, 5/8”, 17/32”, 1/2”, 3/8”, 11/32”, 5/16”, 1/4”, 3/16”, 5/32”, 1/8”, 3/32”, 5/64”, and 1/16”. Screens cost $99 each for sizes 3/16" to 2". Screens cost $200 each for sizes 1/64" to 5/32", because they require a backing plate.
Mills equipped with a material handling fan may utilize the screen sizes listed above, plus 3/64”, 1/32”, and 1/64”. The screen sizes listed are the diameter of the perforation measured in inches. The output volume of the hammer mill is determined by screen size, shaft speed (normally 3,600 rpm), and configuration of the hammers, which can be set up to suit your application.
