Looking for a Hammermill? Insist on quality!

In the commercial rendering industry, there is a critical need to be able to process large amounts of surplus animal by-products quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately, there isn’t a standard solution, because the materials that you will need to process will vary in weight, density, and volume, and you’ll need to invest in equipment that will be suitable for the materials that you’re processing.

At Performance Industries, we specialize in providing premium equipment for the rendering industry, and our team of professionals will work with you to select the right tools for the job. Whether you’ve been in the rendering industry for decades, or are opening a new plant, we’re always glad to share our expertise with you at any time!

One of the most important first step in processing discarded food and farm waste into useful protein rich materials is turning large pieces into smaller ones, and that’s where your hammermill comes in. When you have the right hammermill, you’ll be able to easily crush and pulverize bone, gristle and other tough materials, and prepare them for the subsequent steps in the rendering process.

The way that hammermills work is pretty straightforward, and they primarily operate under the principle that most dense organic materials will crush, shatter, or pulverize upon impact. When you feed your waste materials into the mill’s chamber through the feed chute, gravity will carry it into the mill’s grinding chamber, where it is struck by ganged hammers attached to a high speed rotating shaft. Once inside the grinding chamber, the material is crushed or shattered by a combination of repeated hammer impacts, collisions with the walls of the grinding chamber, and particle on particle impacts. Once that process is complete, properly ground materials will pass through the perforated metal screens or bar grates covering the discharge opening, and coarser material will remain in the chamber for further grinding.

At Performance Industries, we offer an extensive line of hammermills suitable for a wide variety of rendering applications, and will be glad to schedule a consultation with you at any time to help you select the right equipment. You can schedule your consultation online, or you can give us a call at (501) 455-1300 if you have any questions!
