What is a Hammermill crusher?

Hammer mill crushers are a specific type of equipment that is used in the process of breaking down solid materials—usually rocks, ores, coal, or other aggregates—into smaller pieces. They are widely used in industries such as mining, construction, agriculture, and chemical manufacturing for size reduction tasks.

Hammer Mill Crusher Working Principle

Hammer mill crushers operate on the principle of impact crushing. The main working part is a rotor assembly with multiple hammers (also called beaters), which rotate at high speed inside a closely fitted cylindrical housing. When the material enters the crushing chamber, it is struck by the rapidly spinning hammers, causing the material to break due to the impact and also by the collision with the walls of the crushing chamber. The size of the final product is determined by the spacing of the screen or grate bars at the discharge end; only particles smaller than the opening in the screen or grate can pass through.

Hammermill Crushers Types

Reversible Hammer Mills: These mills allow the rotor to be reversed, which helps to even out the wear on the hammers and prolongs their life.

Non-Reversible Hammer Mills: In these mills, the rotor spins in one direction only, and the hammers are typically fixed in place.

Hammer Crusher Advantages

Efficiency: Hammer mills can achieve high reduction ratios in a single pass, making them very efficient for certain applications.

Versatility: They can handle a wide variety of materials and adjust to different production requirements by changing the screen size.

Relatively Low Cost: Compared to other crushing technologies, hammer mills can be less expensive to purchase and operate.

Applications of Hammer Crusher Machine

Hammer mill crushers are used in various industries:

● Mining: For crushing ores and minerals.

● Construction: To process recycled concrete and asphalt.

● Agriculture: For grinding grains and biomass.

● Chemical Industry: For processing soft and medium-hard materials into powders.

What is the difference between hammermill and hammer crusher?


Purpose: Crushers are primarily used for size reduction of large pieces of material, typically in the initial stages of processing. They are designed to break down big chunks of ore, rock, stone, or other materials into smaller pieces.

Operation: Crushers apply compressive forces, impacting forces, or both to reduce the size of the material. Common types include jaw crushers, cone crushers, and impact crushers.

Output: The output from a crusher is generally coarser, and the material can be fed to other machines such as mills for further size reduction.


Purpose: Hammermills are used for further size reduction after the material has been pre-crushed. They are designed to grind or pulverize the material into finer particles or powder.

Operation: Hammermills use friction and attrition to grind the material. They often contain a rotating drum that holds the material and grinding media (like balls or rods) that collide with the material to break it down. Examples include ball mills, rod mills, and hammer mills.

Output: The output from a mill is much finer than that from a crusher, often in the form of a fine powder or slurry, depending on the application.
