Design of hammer mills for optimum performance
Kosse, Vladis & Mathew, Joseph (2001) Design of hammer mills for optimum performance. Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science (Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Part C), 215(1), pp. 87-94.
Hammer mill manufacturers are under increasing pressure to deliver mills of high productivity with a reduced level of vibrations. However, in practice, excessive wear of the rods carrying the hammers takes place, and cracks develop in the vicinity of the holes holding the rods with the hammers, with the possibility of breakaway fracture and disastrous consequences. An increased level of vibrations has been found on many new mills. Existing design approaches have proved to be incapable of explaining this phenomenon. This paper presents a new approach to hammer mill design and enables the prevention of increased vibrations and uneven wear and, finally, provides better performance of hammer mills.
