Hammermill shredders for size reduction of refuse were examined at three sites to determine the influence of key machine parameters on their performance. Internal machine configuration and single-versus two stage size reduction were studied. Key parameters that were investigated and could be related to performance include the number and volume of hammers, open volume fraction, hammer tip speed, grate opening, open volume, and closed volume. The machine parameters were related to throughput, mill holdup, specific energy requirements, power draw, and product size using test data and curve fitting analysis.
