The Evolution Hammermill

by Prater Industries

ENHANCED PRE-GRIND

Sharp radius inlet cutting plate pre-grinds incoming material down to a uniform size generating an even feed into the grinding sector to accelerate throughput capacities and increase effective screen service life
UNIQUE SHAPED GRINDING CHAMBER

Innovative shaped grinding chamber has been engineered to concentrate particle reduction in upper sectors then accelerate sized particle egress across an adjusted circumference in the lower sectors for unparalleled hammermill performance
EFFECTIVE ROTA-BREAK

Rota-Break stops material rotation at 6:00 location to re-establish inlet tip speed and material impact differential velocity and sustain full cycle particle reduction efficiency

ADJUSTABLE CUTTING SCREEN *
*Patent applied for Clip-on Aluminum Backing Sheet Screen Carriage Perforated Hammermill Screen

CONCEPT

Secured outside the upper screen, backing sheets block the path of course particle egress, converting perforated holes into cutting edges to increase reduction action and shift the particle size curve 20% to 30% finer.
BENEFIT

In practice Evolution's Cutting Screen will replicate a typical 8/64" perforation particle distribution through a 12 /64" with a 15% to 20% increase in Lbs/HP/Hour (varies with material, moisture, genetic modification).
ADAPTABLE

HAMMER MILLS

Aluminum backing sheets are available in any length, change as readily as screens and provide unparalleled adaptability to new materials and changing markets.
