Description

Standard Operating Procedure (PDF)

The Viking Electric Hammer Mill is an easy to use hammer mill capable of grinding several types of grains. The mill has hardened-steel hammer blades that are mounted directly on the motor shaft, which rotates at a maximum speed of 3600 rpm to convert grain kernels into uniformly sized particles. The desired particle size is adjusted through the use of interchangeable perforated screens with pore sizes ranging from 1/16" to 1/2”. The mill has a 9"-diameter hopper and is mounted on a frame with adequate storage to accommodate three different perforated-screen sizes. The screens control the flow rate through the mill and thus particle size.
