The Commander hammermill uses a single-radius, high-impact, cutting-plate with staggered slotted rows on either side of the feed inlet for dual rotational milling. These cutting plates offer significant size reduction prior to product contacting the screen, making size reduction more effective.
The hammer-to-screen clearance is approximately 1/8 in., which produces minimal screen buildup and increases product flow through the screen. The staggered head plate (rotor design), offers full hammer-to-screen coverage, coupled with hammer tip speed of approximately 22,000 ft/min and the cutting plate system, makes for optimum grinding performance.
The serviceability of this machine matches its size reduction capabilities aided by the following features:
- Easy access sliding doors
- Easy hammer, pin & collar access, as well as easy bearing replacement
- Heavy-duty screen carriage designed to hold thinner gauge screens in place
- Retractable screen carriage designed for quick and easy screen changes
The Commander is direct drive coupled, offering excellent alignment; the shaft bearings are of high industrial grade, providing long life and reliability.
