Design of hammer mills for optimum performance

Abstract

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.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
