Shredder Hammer Function
The most-frequently replaced wear part is the bell-shaped hammer. Hammers impart the enormous kinetic energy of a shredder’s spinning rotor onto the metal being shredded. Hammers weigh nearly one-half ton new and number about a dozen on the rotor. The rotor with hammers and other wear parts collectively weighs as much as 60 tons. A motor as large as 10,000 hp is needed to attain an operating speed of about 500 rpm. In general, hammers need to be replaced when they have worn down to less than half of their initial weight. If only one hammer needs to be replaced, operators typically replace the opposite hammer, too, to keep the rotor in balance. On average, hammers are replaced once a day.If your operation could benefit from less downtime and fewer change-outs due to hammer wear life, give Qiming Machinery a call.
