    The Swing Hammer Mill is possibly the most economical mill available for the return in output. Glen Creston offers two versions of the mill – Blower Discharge and Bottom Discharge – each available in three sizes and with 2 mounting options.

    The bottom discharge is for discharge of material by gravity and the blower discharge is where a powerful fan pulls the material into the grinding chamber and through the screen which is suitable for lighter weight particles, such as paper, plastic foam or feathers and for applications where the processed material is distributed to another processing area or level. 

    Mounting option 1 - mounted on a steel baseplate

    • For customer installation and wiring
    • For positioning over a collecting vessel, pit, conveyor or hopper
    • Bottom of the mill is open for rapid discharge

    Mounting option 2 – mounted on a frame

    • Ready-wired with an integral starter
    • Outlet has a grid to prevent hand access

    Optional accessories

    • Magnet, which attaches to inlet chute to attract tramp ferrous metal
    • Special electrics to customers’ individual specifications
    • Special frames and chutes to customers’ individual specifications
    • For Blower Discharge version only: Product/air separator, comprising duct, cyclone, sack filling neck with clamps and support

    The chart lists the approximate throughput per hour from the Hammer Mill 10. The results will depend on screen size, material, moisture content, feeding method and motor power. Results may be approximately doubled for Model 20 and tripled for Model 30.
