Hammermill for pellets and briquetting

Sometimes you just need a hammer.

EU Hammermill - Low maintenance, high output

The hammer mill, also known as a pulverizer, works according to the principle of impact grinding. Its core consists of a rotor with non-wearing impact hammers and external rolling bearing housing. The Scanhugger Hammermill is highly suitable for grinding coarse chips of solid wood, particleboard, and MDF into a predefined particle size ranging from 6 – 15 mm. Depending on the material you need processed and the particle size of the final product, the hammermill can be mounted with different screen and hammer combinations to fit your requirements.

Grinding equipment for processing feed and advanced industrial materials

The wood Hammermill with a bottom outlet, and with inlet in the top of the grinding chamber is used in connection with sub-bin, or mechanical transport of the milled product. The EU-series wood grinding hammermill with suction pipe socket, and with inlet in the top of the grinding chamber is used in connection with nozzle filter and ventilator (sub-pressure installation). Used where long transport distances and large capacities are required. This type of installation is dust-free. The Hammer mill is used for grinding of products into smaller particles. In the process, the product is led to the mill inlet via a conveyor belt, auger or similar equipment with capacity adjustment by means of e.g. frequency converter. When the product falls into the grinding chamber, it is split into particles by the rotation of the hammers and the grinding bridge. The grinding fineness of the product is determined by the hole size of the screen.

Shredded wood from a scanhugger industrial wood waste recycling shredder


The smaller the particle size, the higher the resale value. The Scanhugger EU Hammermill is the ideal secondary shredder for multi-stage systems. Our reliable industrial wood chippers ensure the production of a homogeneous granulate. The granulate can then be used for in-house wood chip furnace, biogas plant, biomass co-generation plant and the production of wood briquettes. This reduction in size also reduces your disposal, transport and storage costs. Regardless of how you are planning to use the wood chips, we will configure the shredder and auxiliary products for woodworking scrap exactly according to your needs.


The material is reduced when it passes between the hammers and the grinding bridge. The rotor is mounted with 8 mm swinghammers. The hammers can be turned using the 4 corners for prolounged hammering. The hammer mill deliver consistently high capacities and are ideal for dry wood grinding, generating valuable wood products for the particle board industry and other wood composite markets, pellet production, briquetting, and boiler fuels.

Turning chips into dust

The screen is a solid steel plate perforated with round holes for optimal output quality. The hole size range from 6 – 15 mm. pending the requirements. We use a highly-robust, low wear grinder and milling segments for extra durability. The design of the rotation of the hammer mill gives an even wear on the screens and milling segments, which further adds to a reduced maintenance and service requirements.


When servicing is required, our hammer mills are highly accessible. Design as a clamshell, where the top let can be flipped open, gives easy access to the screens and hammers. This ensures the fast and easy access to all machinery parts and keeps any unnecessary downtime to the absolute minimum. The low costs are further supported by the highly robust, wear-resistant properties of the grinders and the tested underlying technology.
