The Glen Creston Swing Hammer mill range is designed for light/medium duty crushing of a broad range of materials in batch, in-line and recycling applications. Available in cast iron/carbon, steel and stainless steel with a blower discharge option, this versatile mill is a cost effective solution for process engineers.
From waste glass to cosmetic pigments the swing hammer mill range will tackle many dry materials at rates of a few kilos to up to 1000 kg per hour, depending on material and screen size.
The mill features a 180º full width, discharge screen which is easily interchangeable once the safety interlocked top half of the mill is hinged back to give unrestricted access to the crushing chamber.
Material enters the grinding chamber where it is ground by the action of swinging hardened steel hammers against a serrated face. The ground material then passes out of the mill through a screen. Normal discharge is by gravity but there is also a blower discharge option designed to help discharge of light materials that may otherwise remain in the crushing chamber.
The durable mill body is constructed from cast iron with 12, 18 or 30 hardened steel hammers, depending on model. The hammers have four grinding edges which can be rotated in turn to give maximum life. The body hammers and screen of the gravity discharge model can also be constructed of stainless steel for applications such as food or pharmaceuticals where corrosion resistance is essential.
The mill can be supplied with a stainless steel hopper and a stand for use as a stand alone laboratory of batch grinder, or with just the motor bedplate for inclusion into a process line.
This type of mill has been used successfully to grind Chemicals, Resins, Grain, Clay, Seaweed (dried), Fruit (dried), Wheat, Barley/Oats, Domestic waste, and Glass, but could be applied in any similar situation.
