Hammermill Crushers are known for providing greater reduction ratios in a variety of materials for the aggregate and industrial markets. The Universal HammerMaster and LimeMaster are available in several model sizes and focused on the aggregate industry. Universal Industrial Hammermills are available in three different styles of mills and numerous model sizes in each style. The heavy-duty, rugged construction of all Universal Hammermills allow for greater applied forces to achieve higher production rates with controlled product top size and gradation.
Through years of experience and refinement, McLanahan engineers have designed two distinct families of Hammermill Crushers. These crushers are capable of processing a wide range of materials. If you are looking for reliable performance and a solid return on your investment, McLanahans Universal lines of Hammermill Crushers are the perfect answer for you. With numerous models to choose from, and a wide selection of hammers and grate combinations, McLanahan can provide a specially formulated mill to fit your specifications, along withcustomer support to ensure it runs efficiently for the life of the machine.
The Universal HammerMaster has been refined over many years, beginning with the Universal Pulverizer nearly a century ago. The HammerMaster is a high-speed mill noted for its ability to generate high-quality aggregates, cubical in shape, with superior soundness. Available in three sizes, the HammerMaster is known for making excellent asphalt chip material, concrete stone, and general base material and road rock. This mill is also capable of making agricultural lime for pH control in farm fields.
The Universal LimeMaster was developed over the same time period as the HammerMaster and incorporates many of the same components. However, the LimeMaster is solely focused on generating pulverized lime. Most limestone quarries and mines produce an abundance of fines. In some cases, with careful screening they can create a marketable aglime or chemical lime without further investment. As these markets expand, the LimeMaster can be added to the operation and greatly increase the production of this valuable product, also known as calcium carbonate.
Universal Industrial Hammermills are available in three distinct styles designed around specific types of operations. We offer the Standard Hammermill, the Non-Clog Hammermill and the Centerfeed Hammermill. All the Industrial Hammermills share a common emphasis on severe-duty construction and the ability to conform to a broad range of application issues. The Standard and Non-Clog Hammermills are considered primary crushers, with some models capable of accepting a maximum feed size of 72" (1,830mm). The Centerfeed Hammermill is a secondary crusher designed to accept feed from a primary with controlled top size ranging from 3" to 5" (75mm to 125mm). Industrial Hammermills are not limited to limestone or gypsum they are known worldwide for processing bauxite, nickel ore, phosphate ore, coal, pet coke, clay, shale, and of course, limestone.
All Universal Hammermills work on three principal reduction methods: impact, shear and attrition. As material enters the mill from a vertical chute, it comes in contact with the leading edge of the hammers, each of which is firmly secured to the spinning rotor. The hammer is pinned to the rotor body and allowed to swing, and lay back to some degree. The centrifugal force keeps the hammers extended, and the inertia force unleashed on the material shatters the rock on impact. The particles rebound off the impact plates or breaker blocks back into the hammer circle. In an instant, the material is carried into the grate or cage assembly, where shear forces reduce the larger particles and carry them across the grate surface, grinding the particles into a controlled gradation. Openings in the grates and cage assemblies allow particles to escape the mill once they are reduced to the appropriate size.
Hammermills can be used to achieve a number of goals beyond simple material reduction. In many limestone formations, seams or stratus contains soft deleterious material like chert, shale or mudstone. This material can adversely affect the value of the finished product. A hammermill can be set to pulverize the soft stone and shear the edges of the harder stone in a single pass through the mill. Screening after the mill allows for separation of the pulverized deleterious material, while the more cubical stone continues through the system.
The Standard and Non-Clog Industrial Hammermills are designed to reduce the material to a nominal 3" to 5" (75mm to 25mm) output. These are primary stage crushers, commonly followed with Centerfeed Mills or other types of secondary stage crushers. The HammerMaster is also a secondary stage crusher in that the maximum feed size is 6" (150mm). The hammers used in the HammerMaster line of mills all weigh 60 lbs (27kgs), which creates a sufficient force to fracture a 6 stone and remain extended from the rotor. The Centerfeed Industrial Hammermills incorporate various hammers of size and weight. Larger models of Centerfeed Hammermills may allow up to 8 (200mm) maximum feed size.
Hammermill Crushers are known to generate material finer than 3/16" (4mm), which in some applications may be undesirable. However, if there is a market for finer material, or if it is acceptable within the desired product size, Hammermills can achieve reduction ratios that may otherwise require multiple crushers.
Reduction ratio is often measured by dividing the F80 by the P80. The F80 is the particle size where 80% of the feed material is smaller than that size. The P80 represents a particle size where 80% of the product is smaller. Reduction ratios will vary with each application within each family of Hammermills and by the amount of applied energy.
Testing for abrasive characteristics in the material is a logical first step when considering the cost to replace hammers and liners. In some instances, when you are replacing a similar type Hammermill also fitted with manganese wear metal, this is less of a factor. However, in new installations, chemical analysis of the material is strongly recommended. This also applies when expanding the mine into formations where material characteristics may be changing.
Drive and power components are important not only for budgetary reasons, but also due to line power restrictions from the utility company. Hammermill Crushers often require a 1:1 ratio comparing horsepower to tph throughput. That ratio can grow to 3:1 for many applications, and even 5:1 when fine-grinding is required.
Direct drive via a flexible coupling is often the choice, when and if a motor of the same rpm can be locally sourced and serviced. However, this limits the ability to change rpm in case of changes in material formation or product specifications.
Dual motor drives allow for smaller standard frame motors, which may be more available at lower, competitive prices. You may also save on operating costs if one of the motors is wired with a solid state reduced voltage starter. Peak amperage draw is kept at a minimum when starting the crusher with the reduced voltage starter. The second motor is engaged via across-the-line starter only after the crusher is fully up to speed. Utility companies often charge a premium for peak amperage draw.
HammerMasters and LimeMasters are also available with replaceable tip hammers in lieu of the standard bullhead hammers. They are also offered with an optional feed chute to accommodate the conveyor feed.
Industrial Centerfeed Hammermills are also available with a trap mechanism located under the rotor at the central discharge point. This trap blocks the flow of material, forcing all the material to extrude through the grate openings. This trap also provides a relief for any tramp iron that may enter the chamber. A mechanical arm extends through the base frame to provide easy access when time to empty the trap, which is secured with a pivot pin and hinge.
Hydraulic access into the crusher is also available for the larger Industrial Hammermills. Not only can McLanahan offer hydraulic adjustment, the same hydraulic power unit can be used to open and close the access hatch for inspection and maintenance.
When a Hammermill is selected and recommended for a specific application, the crushing chamber with grates, impact plates and the hammers will be taken into account in the valuation of the Hammermill.
In most cases, the capacity of a Hammermill Crusher is based on the desired reduction ratio, the toughness of the material and the energy applied to accomplish the reduction. The diameter and width of the rotor assembly accommodates the top size of the feed and the surface area necessary to grind and extrude the ouput. The amount of energy applied will then result with a design capacity, which will always fluctuate with changes in the toughness or friability of the material. Essentially, for the Industrial Hammermills it is best to rely on the Bond Theory to determine necessary horsepower.
In the case of the HammerMaster and LimeMaster crushers, McLanahan has designed the crusher with rotor dimensions, shaft and bearings to handle a variety of applications at a specific horsepower rating. Since the power element is fixed, capacities can be pre-determined based on limestone and various reduction ratios.
Used as both primary and secondary crushers, McLanahan Hammermill Crushers incorporate grates, which when desired, ensures controlled product sizing as material must be to-size when it passes through the grate to exit the machine. These machines provide superior reduction ratios for a variety of low to medium abrasive materials and can be engineered for various applications.
The basic principle is straightforward. A hammer mill is essentially a steel drum containing a vertical or horizontal rotating shaft or drum on which hammers are mounted. The hammers are free to swing on the ends of the cross, or fixed to the central rotor. The rotor is spun at a high speed inside the drum while material is fed into a feed hopper. The material is impacted by the hammer bars and is thereby shredded and expelled through screens in the drum of a selected size.
A hammer mill is a crusher that can grind, pulverize, and crush a wide range of materials. This rock crusher machine employs a rain of hammer blows to shatter and disintegrate the material. Hammer mills produce a finish product size that is dependent upon
This sand maker offers special features for producing standard material to be used in concrete and asphalt production, being the best choice for conditions where in small polyhedral particles are required.
The hammer mill is the best known and by far the most widely used crushing device employing the impact principle of breaking and grinding stone. Thus far we have described machines which do a portion of their work by impact, but the only machine described in which this action plays an important role was the sledging roll type and particularly the Edison roll crusher and in these machines impact is supplemented to a substantial degree by a positive and powerful sledging action by teeth which are rigidly attached to massive rolls.
The hammermill, fundamentally, is a simple mechanism. The orthodox machine comprises a box-like frame, or housing, a centrally disposed, horizontal-shaft rotating element (rotor) on which the hammers are mounted, and usually a set of circumferentially arranged grates in the lower part of the housing. The rotor consists of a shaft carried in bearings at either side of the housing, and the hammer centre of multi-flange drum or spool shape. The flanges of this drum-like assembly are drilled near their outer edges for hinge pins to which the inner ends of the hammers or hammer arms are attached. The hammers themselves are made in a variety of styles and shapes. Sometimes the hammer arm and head are cast, or forged, integrally; in other designs as in the impactorthe arms and hammer head are separate pieces.
The grates usually consist of a transversely arranged series of tapered, wear-resisting steel bars, which form a cage of circular cross section across the lower part of the housing just below the hammer path. The spacing of these steel bars varies quite widely, depending upon the size of product and upon the characteristics of the material to be crushed. The spacing may be anything from % in. or slightly less, up to several inches, and in some machines may be dispensed with entirely for coarse products and closed-circuit operation.
Hammermills may be connected directly to the driving motor, or driven by a flat belt or V-belts. The two latter methods have one material advantage over the direct drive; they permit speed adjustments to achieve optimum performance for each particular set of conditions.
In the impact-hammer-mill, a cross-sectional view of which is shown here on the left,the process is, in one important respect, a reversal of that just described. The material enters the machine on the up-running side of the rotor, where it is struck by the hammers as they start their sweep across the upper part of the housing. The top of the crushing chamber is lined with a series of breaker plates whose impact faces are involute with respect to the hammer circle, so that material hurled by the hammers impinges squarely against these surfaces regardless of the striking point. The action in this impact zone is a succession of violent blows, first from hammer-to-material and then from material-to-breaker plate, and so on through the several stages of the involute series. As contrasted to the type previously described, most of the work in this crusher is done in the breaker-plate zone; the grates function chiefly as a scalping grizzly, and the clearance between hammers and grates is relatively large. A certain amount of impact breaking does take place between hammers and grates, but this is secondary to the work done against the involute plates. On friable material this machine will deliver a medium fine (0.25 to 3/8) product with some, or even all, of the grates removed.
The capacity of any given size and type of hammermill depends upon several factors. The character of the material influences the performance of this machine to a greater degree than it does that of any of the crushers previously discussed. It is only natural that this should be the case; all of the energy consumed in the crushing chamber is delivered by free-swinging hammers, and it is to be expected that there would be a considerable difference in the effect of these impact blows upon materials of varying physical structure. Higher speeds will of course produce better shattering effect to take care of hard rock, but there are definite limits, both from mechanical and operational standpoints, to the speed of any particular mill.
Speed, or velocity, while it is the very life of the hammermill, may also function to limit the amount of feed that the mill will take. Thus, in any given machine, the number of rows of hammers used will affect capacity. Or, to state it a little more clearly, for any combination of speed, feed size, and number of rows of hammers there is a definite limit to the amount of material that the mill will receive.
This is understandable when it is considered, for example, that in a machine running 1500 RPM, with four rows of hammers, the receiving opening is swept by a row of hammers 100 times each second, and there is obviously a limit to the amount of material that can enter the space between two successive hammer rows in this short period of time.
We find that for some combinations of feed size and product size, more production can be obtained with only two rows of hammers, rather than three, or more. Radial velocity of the material entering the mill will naturally have a direct bearing upon the amount that will drop in between the rows of hammers. Thus, in a well designed mill the feed spout is always so arranged that the material falls, rather than flows, into the crushing zone.
It is hardly necessary to state that the size of product directly affects the capacity of a hammermill, just as it does any type of crusher. The finer the product the more work the machine must do; furthermore, the grate bars, when any are used, must be spaced closer, which means that the open area of the grate section is reduced.
When the grate bars are spaced widely, or dispensed with, and the sizing is done over a closed-circuited screen, product size has the same direct influence upon capacity because, the finer the screen openings, the more return load and, hence, the less original feed that can be handled by the mill.
Size of feed affects capacity, but not always in the inverse proportion which might, at first thought appear to be logical. For example, suppose we were operating a medium-size hammermill on limestone, turning out a 10-mesh product. We know that this machine will handle more tonnage if we feed it with, say, 3 maximum size rock, as compared with a feed of 10 or 12 maximum size; which accords with the logical expectation. However, if we further reduce the feed size to, say 12 maximum, we find that our will increase very little if at all; in fact it may actually decrease. This apparent anomaly is explained by the fact that the effect of impact upon a free body of material varies directly with the mass of the body; consequently the energy absorption, and hence the shattering effect, is much greater on the 3 piece than it is on the 1/2 particle.
Because all these variables that we have noted have an influence upon the capacity of the hammermill, it is impossible to present a comprehensive tabulation of capacity ratings which can be relied upon for any and all materials. We can however do so for any one material, as we did for the Fairmount crusher. It is convenient and logical that this should be a medium limestone in this case also, because hammermills are applied extensively to crushing, and pulverizing, that kind of rock.
Above is theapproximate capacity ratings of the various sizes of hammermill (impact crushers), on medium limestone, and for various grate bar spacings. Unless the prospective hammermill user has operational data on which to predicate his selection of a new machine for some specific service, the safest procedure is to have his material tested, either in the field or in the laboratory, in a mill of the type he proposes to install.
The shattering effect of the blows delivered by hammers travelling at velocities as high as 200 Feet/Second is conducive to both of these results. It is natural to expect that gradation of the hammermill product would vary somewhat for materials of differing friability, and results verify this expectation. Furthermore, speed has a definite influence upon product gradation; high speeds increase fines, and vice versa. The effect of impact at extremely high speed is, on friable material, almost explosive, the action being more aptly designated as pulverizing, rather than crushing. Lower impact velocities have a more moderate breaking effect, and if the material is able to clear the crushing chamber before it is struck too many times, the low speed hammermill will turn out a fairly uniformly graded product on material of average friability.
The design of the crushing chamber will also affect product gradation. In general, those machines which perform most of their work by straight impact action will turn out a more uniformly graded product than mills which depend upon interaction between hammers and grates for most of their reduction. This is only natural in view of the fact that attritional grinding is minimized in the former type of mill.
What is intended to take place inside a hammermill is the uniform, efficient reduction of the material introduced into the grinding chamber. This particle reduction occurs as a result of the impact between a rapidly moving hammer and a relatively slow moving particle. If sufficient energy is transferred during the collision, the particle breaks and is accelerated towards the screen. Depending on the particle size and the angle of approach, it either passes through the screen or rebounds from the screen into the rapidly moving hammers again. As materials move through the grinding chamber they tend to approach hammer tip speed. Since reduction only occurs when a significant energy is transferred from the hammer to the particle (large difference in velocities), less grinding takes place when the particles approach hammer tip speed. Many manufacturers incorporate devices within their mills to interrupt this product flow, allowing impact and reduction to continue. Tear circle hammermills have a more positive, natural redirection of product at the inlet than full circle design machines. While the basic operational concepts are the same for all hammermills, the actual unit operating conditions change rather dramatically depending on the materials being processed. Grains such as corn, wheat, sorghum and various soft stocks, like soybean meal, tend to be friable and easy to grind. Fibrous, oily, or high moisture products, like screenings, animal proteins, and grains like oats and barley, on the other hand, are very tough and require much more energy to reduce.Consequently, the hammermill setup that works well for one will not necessarily work for the other. The following discussion covers such factors as tip speeds, hammer patters and position, horsepower ratios (to hammer and screen area), and air assist systems. Little space is devoted to screen sizes (perforation or hole size) since processing variables would make any hard and fast statements nearly impossible.
The Jeffrey Swing is a relatively small Hammermill Pulverizer and is made in several types and a large number of sizes for handling large or small capacities and light, medium, or heavy work. Some of the materials being successfully reduced by this pulverizer are coal, coke, copper ore, barytes, gypsum, kaolin, magnesite, chalk, clay, cement rock, dolomite rock, phosphate rock, and limestone.
This machine operates on the principle of reducing the material by striking it while in suspension, as opposed to attrition. The material is fed into the top of the machine and falls into the path of the rapidly revolving hammers. Different degrees of reduction may be had by simply varying the speed of the machine.
This unit is of extra heavy construction and consequently is well adapted for severe duty. The hinged breaker plate is adjustable while operating and is fitted with a heavy renewable liner. Shafting is high carbon forged steel and is fitted with discs which are of heavy plate and cast steel, carefully balanced.

Hammer stone crusher is a kind of equipment that crushes materials in the form of impact. Crushing the size of 600-1800 mm material to 25m or less. Hammermill machine can not only be used in stone crusher plant, sand plant, but also can replace the cone crusher in the mineral processing.
JXSC hammer mill machine that hammerhead adopts a new technology cast which wear-resistant and impact-resistant. The airframe structure of the hammer mill is seal which solves the problems of dust pollution and dust leakage in the crushing workshop. And it is easy to maintain.
1. Hammerhead uses new cast technology which with wear-resistant and impact-resistant characteristic. 2. Can adjust the granularity size. 3. The seal structure that solves the problems of dust pollution and dust leakage in the crushing workshop. 4. The overall design of hammer crushing equipment has the advantages of beautiful appearance, compact structure, few wearing parts, convenient maintenance, etc.
Hammermill crusher mainly rely on impact energy to complete the crushing of materials. When the hammer mill rock crusher works, the motor drives the rotor to rotate at high speed, and the material enters the crusher cavity evenly. The hammerhead with high speed turns impacts and tears the material lead to the materials are crushed.
At the same time, the material from the high-speed rotating hammerhead to the baffle and screen strip in the frame under the gravity effect. The material larger than the size of the screen hole remains on the screen plate and continues to be hit and ground by the Hammer. Then finally through the sieve plate discharge machine until the crusher material size discharge.
The advantages of the hammer: The ratio of crushing is large, generally is 10-25, high up to 50. High production capacity. uniform products. Less over-powder phenomenon. Simple structure, light equipment quality. Simple operation and maintenance, etc. The series hammer crusher products are suitable for crushing all kinds of medium hardness and brittle materials, such as limestone, coal, salt, gypsum, alum, brick, tile, coal gangue and so on. The compressive strength of the crushed material shall not exceed 150 MPA.
The series of crushers are mainly used in cement, coal preparation, power generation, building materials, and compound fertilizer industries. It can crush the raw materials of different sizes into uniform particles for the next working procedure. Reliable mechanical structure, high production efficiency, good applicability.
But the hammer crusher also has some disadvantages, such as the hammer and grate screen wear quickly. When crushing hard materials, they wear out faster. When crushing sticky wet materials, it is easy to plug the screen seam of the grate. Therefore, it is easy to cause shut down, so the moisture content of the material should not exceed 10 %. When milling hard objects, the hammer and lining plate have big wear. And the consumptive metal material is much, often needs to replace the wear-and-tear piece.

Our high-performance impact crusher or better known for good small scale Hammer Mill Grinding. Specially engineered to outperform those run-of-the-mill chain mills often falsely called hammer mills. This crusher is effectively a small-scale replica of industrial impactors.
In this rock-crushing machine, rock is projected against the inner cage and shatters by impact. At 1750 RPM, the AR-450 blow-bars throw the material to be crushed onto another set of abrasion-resistant wear-plates.
As impact crushing becomes more prevalent in the production of friable as well as some harder types of aggregates, it is natural for those not completely familiar with the process, or recent improvements in technology, to wonder why impactors are being specified in situations previously often considered uneconomical or, at best, marginally feasible for this type of equipment. The simple answer is that the rules for determining the economic feasibility of utilizing impact systems have changed over the last few years, and are continuing to change at an accelerating pace.
Before discussing the new economics of impact crusher usage, it might be well to briefly state the original, and still valid, advantages of the impact crusher in the production of friable aggregates. Low original cost has always been the primary advantage of this equipment. For a given application this first cost may well be only a quarter as much as for compression type crusher installation. Second, a greater reduction ratio can be achieved. Many installations are now producing specification stone from run-of-quarry feed in a single pass through a primary impact unit. Third, impact crushers are capable of accepting larger feed sizes, with units now in operation handling feed sizes in excess of 65 x 65 x random length. This larger feed size capability reduces material hang-up in the feed hopper and the need for use of either secondary blasting or a headache ball to reduce oversize rock in the quarry prior to transporting it to the primary crusher. And fourth, impact crushing, by its very nature, produces a higher quality product. It produces a dense, cubical product without the slivers or slabs prevalent in other methods, making it easier for plant operators to meet the stringent specifications laid down by many customers.
Each of these inherent advantages leads automatically to certain economic advantages, as well as to some recognised disadvantages. However, some of the potential economies have not, until recently, been fully exploited. Nor is it well known among all producers how some of the old disadvantages have been overcome in some of the newer units and systems now appearing in newer quarries.
Briefly, compression is the forcing of two surfaces toward one another to crush the material caught between them. Impact crushing can be of two variationsgravity and dynamic. An example of gravity impact would be dropping a rock onto a steel plate.
Design improvements in many of the impactors being manufactured today have a great deal to do with changing earlier ideas concerning the economics of this type of equipment vs. nominal installations. But, of equal importance, is the systems design approach now being offered by the leading manufacturers to solve aggregate production problems. In any technology, when a thorough systems design approach is undertaken in an effort to better utilize the inherent advantages of a specific product, the results may be much more rewarding than mere use of the product advantages by themselves. This is proving true in aggregate production as more quarry operators are calling in impactor manufacturers during the early planning stages and letting them design complete production systems that utilize all the advantages of todays crusher technology.
The flow diagram at the left is from one manufacturers brochure. He uses it to indicate not only that he welcomes the opportunity to custom engineer a complete system for his customers, but also to show through call-outs, which have been deleted for this article, that his company actually designs and manufactures about ninety percent of the machines, parts, assemblies and other items necessary for this type of total plant.
This willingness by the leading crusher manufacturers to assume total responsibility for turnkey installations has forced technological improvements that might still be years away if manufacturers still sold, and the industry still purchased, only bits here and pieces there. One leading manufacturer readily admits that improvements he has made in his crushers have forced changes in his lines of material handling equipment; that changes in quarrying techniques and demands for increased capacity have speeded improvements in his crusher design, screening systems, conveyor parts and systems, feeder arrangements, and drying and storage equipment; that sometimes these domino-type changes go full circle and start yet another round of changes and improvements, all of benefit to the system buyer, and many of which might never have been made were they not caused by total systems development responsibility.
Along with these chain effect improvements in complete aggregate processing systems are the steady and, in some cases, almost dramatic improvements made in impact crushers themselves. Considerable R&D work by leading manufacturers has led to larger, more versatile, more durable, and more efficient impact crushers in recent years that are much easier and more economical to maintain. Crushing equipment, whether primary or secondary in nature, represents one of the most important aspects in the overall operation of minerals* processing.In an area which includes the vast range of ores, minerals, coals, stone and rocks, etc., a processing plants crusher selection must be given special consideration. Performance, cost, availability and versatility are the prime goals.
Crusher Selection For the crusher to perform its role in the processing cycle with maximum efficiency and economy it must be matched to the task. Determining factors in crusher selection break down into four categories: material to be crushed; feed size; product size; and expected capacity. The right crusher should also have the lowest power requirements per ton of finished product, and operate with minimum maintenance and downtime. There are a variety of crushers to meet the needs of todays industrial requirements. Exactly how is a determination made on the proper crusher? Extensive study and evaluation of the above facts concerning material, feed size, etc. will be an essential guideline. Next to be considered is the actual mechanical method of crushing to be used. Generally, crushing methods include compression, impaction, attrition, and shearing.
