Flexibility was a key objective in the design of the HG365E, which can be configured to meet a wide variety of on-site, electric-powered grinding applications. A 250 HP (186.5 kw), 460-volt three-phase Baldor electric motor powers the hammermill, while all other hydraulic functions are driven by a separate 50 HP (37.28 kw) Baldor motor.
The HG365E offers the same innovative and labor saving features - such as the SmartGrind system and the patented Duplex Drum Rotor - as the mobile Vermeer HG365, which joined the Vermeer grinder family in 2001.
Feature: Easy Access Screens
Benefit: Top loading screens allow the operator to change screens easily and in less time than the competition.
Feature: Smart Grind
Benefit: Optimizes machine performance and production electronically and allows operator to focus on loading raw product and moving finished product about the job site.
Feature: Thrown Object Deflector (TOD)
Benefit: Decreases the quantity and distance of material kick back and reduces the cleanup necessary after grinding is complete.
Feature: Duplex Drum
Benefit: The Duplex Drum offers multiple features, such as: 1. Reduced maintenance time due to protection of the hammers by the drum skin itself. The hammer passes through the drum, and the cutter block bolts to the face of the exposed portion of the hammer. Maintenance needs for buildup of hammers is reduced if the cutter blocks are maintained. 2. 10 hammers cutting 20 radial paths. 3. 1 style of hammers: Hardened wide block cutters. 4. Hammers are reversible, as are the cutter blocks, therefore doubling the life of the hammers. 5. Drum skin is reversible if wear shows over time, as are the end cap wipers. 6. Wipers are designed to remove buildup material between the end of the drum and the mill box walls. 7. Large 4.33" (11.0 cm) spherical roller bearings have a high shock-load tolerance during the grinding operation. 8. Hammers pass through the center line of the drum, thus reducing the need for individual balancing of hammers. 9. Cutter blocks are the primary retention method of the hammer, with a back up center retention pin as a secondary method. This makes for very quick hammer removal. 10. The center retention pin has no load on it, so removal is very simple, and the hammers remain in place once the pin is removed as long as the cutter blocks are in place.
