Prater Particle Size Reduction Products
Mega Mill Hammer Mills
Our Mega Mill Hammer Mill provides uniform grinding with less heat build-up, as well as a bearing and shaft arrangement that ensures smoother and quieter operation.
Air Classifying Mills
The air classifying mills combines two-staged, closed circuit grinding with internal air classification for ultra-fine micronization. The distinctive capabilities of the Prater Air Classifying Mill outperform single-stage mills when handling products that are difficult to grind or require ultra-narrow particle distributions.
M Series Fine Grinders
The “M” Series fine grinders are designed to grind dry, free-flowing material down to 400 mesh with extremely tight particle size distribution. This highly efficient machine ensures easy access to all internal areas and is perfect for heat-sensitive materials, such as resins, sugars, and powder coatings. Notable features include a final product size between 60 – 400 mesh, external bearing assembly, a dynamically balanced reversible rotor assembly, ensured tight clearances between rotors and fixed grinding elements, and a dual o-ring door seal with floating door hinge for positive sealing.
A compact, economical easy to maintain machine, that gently pulverizes agglomerated or densified material with lumps up to 8 inches in size. Reduced size material has improved flow characteristics and also benefits downstream blending and drying processes.
Full-Screen Hammer Mills
Our Full-Screen, ‘G-series’, design is a proven system that ensures maximized use of the entire available screen area to enhance end-product quality and equipment productivity.

Lump Breakers for Particle Size Reduction
Our lump breakers reduce pieces or lumps from 6-inch to 1/16-inch and feature easily replaceable rotating and fixed blades. Many different products, such as chemicals, minerals, salt, sugar, fertilizer, and ceramic powders, can be processed using our state-of-the-art lump breaker. If you are looking for something a bit more precise, consider our fine grinders for your needs. Designed to grind dry, free-flowing material down to 200 mesh with very tight particle distribution, our fine grinders are also ideal for heat-sensitive materials such as powder coatings, sugars, and resins.
Hammer Mills and Air Classifying Mills for Difficult Applications
Prater’s Hammer Mills are widely used throughout a variety of industries for processing many different materials within a wide selection of particle reduction applications requiring high capacities, power efficiency, and uniform particle size. All of our hammer mill models utilize our exclusive full-screen design, which ensures the use of the entire available screen area. Additionally, our Air Classifying Mills offer both two-state closed-circuit grinding with inter-stage air classification all in one convenient unit. The Air Classifying Mills are ideal for any difficult-to-grind applications or for any narrow particle distribution curve.
