Asnong offers three lines of hammer mills, designed and manufactured in house. All mills are supplied completely explosion proof and ATEX 114 compliant.
The traditional GD series run at 1500 RPM and have a large rotor and milling chamber, the mill is air ventilated and typically comes in combination with a grist separator case and a fan/filter combination. The capacities roughly range from 8 t/h to 20 t/h.
The newer 2D series run at 3000 RPM and therefore have a smaller rotor: the tip speed of the beaters is 100 m/s in all cases. This mill is also air ventilated and comes in combination with a grist separator case and a fan/filter combination. The capacities roughly range from 4 t/h to 10 t/h.
Finally there is the IM series, originally designed to be used for inert milling conditions under N2 or CO2, it is now merely used for smaller applications and adjuncts milling. The mill is self- ventilating, so it does not need a separate fan.
Apart from the standard malted grains, our mills also show excellent performance for un-malted grains such as barley, wheat and sorghum if the power of the motor is adjusted accordingly. The mills are designed for low investment, extreme high reliability, best efficiency in the segment, low maintenance and low noise production.
The Asnong mills have demonstrated unique performances in breweries, superb life cycle economics and reliability. Numerous mills are in daily operation for over 20 years, and the installed base is growing. The economic life time is typically over 30 years.
The fact that there are several look-alikes of the Asnong hammer mill on the market is not a coincidence: The design was so successful that it inspired some of our competitors to build one as well.
Since Asnong knows all details and technology behind these mills, we service these look-alikes as being ours, including spare parts provision, preventive maintenance programs, repair and overhaul anywhere on the globe. These overhauls have led to several interesting hybrid devices with a competitor’s casing and an Asnong heart…..
