Pre-refining hammer mills

Recycling plants to prepare the scrap for the refining process.

Grinding patents

A common characteristic of Panizzolo hammer mills, the interchangeable cradle is a significant plus in the grinding of metal scrap

Grinding logic

The structure of the mill is designed to prevent the ejection of material from the inlet while wear is limited to armours, grilles and hammers. These items are manufactured with the best steels and castings for gradual wear and keeping the quality of the ground scrap constant.

Low energy costs

The hammer mill maximises the ratio between energy consumption and hourly productivity. The line includes models from 55 kW to 110 kW, with production performance from 1.5 ton/h to 3.5 ton/h depending on the model.

Low management costs

The machinery is designed to minimise production downtime and the number of operators involved in the operation. The software autonomously monitors and adjusts the treatment, so that personnel do not need to be constantly near the plant.

Rotor and hammers

The rotors facilitate grinding of scrap, absorbing stress without long-term structural repercussions. Panizzolo has eliminated the most common points of fragility by studying every element and designing specific components. Hammers are installed they can rotate freely 360°. They are designed for an ideal crushing capacity without being subject to long-term warping, breakage or cracks.

Easy maintenance

These periodical operations require an essential number of operators, without the need for special equipment or highly professional competences. The rotor can turn all the way thanks to the built-in double sheave. Controls and greasing are designed to be simple and intuitive.

The particularity of Panizzolo pre-refining hammer mills is the grinding of metal scrap intended to prepare it for the End-of-Waste refining cycles. The machinery includes as per standard: load conveyor belt, load and unload system, Panizzolo mill with rotor, electric panel with supervision software, electric and hydraulic circuit and safety and monitoring systems of the process. The Flex 500 Stationary Refine model also includes the interchangeable cradle, module with magnetic sorting, oscillating load surface, walkways and access ladder.

Panizzolo hammer mills allow full access to the grinding chamber where one can effectively intervene on the cradle, rotor, grilles, hammers and armours. All these details make a difference in reducing any machine downtime.

Consistent with our quality policy, Panizzolo designs almost all of the components and uses components coming from Italian or North European suppliers known for top quality in the sector.
