Hammer Mills are very old yet widely used among various types of crushers. It is a type of centrifugal crusher. The crusher hammers are symmetrically designed on rotors and hence can work in both the directions.
Reversal of the direction permits the user to use the opposite face of the hammer and thus increases the life. The direction of motor is reversed at regular intervals to have the uniform wear on hammers. Bevcon Hammer mills produce higher crushing ratios up to 25:1. Reversible Hammer Mill is used either as a primary, secondary or territory crusher depending on the capacity and circuit design.
