Highlight features


Suitable for a broad range of applications

The Vertica is a versatile hammer mill for the size reduction of your free-flowing bulk materials. Designed for particle sizes < 60 mm, bulk densities of 0.2 to 0.8 kg/dm³, a moisture content < 15% and a temperature < 40 °C, it’s an excellent solution for animal feeds, grain, oilseed and biomass processing.

Innovative grinding concept

Small footprint for a guaranteed fit in your plant

The Vertica’s small footprint makes it easy to retrofit into an existing space or to plan into a new plant. The Vertica can be used as a single grinder or as a twin-grinder station for doubled throughput.


High-performance grinding without aspiration

One of Vertica's major advantages is that it doesn’t require an aspiration. This significantly reduces capital investment and operating costs. Your energy consumption can be reduced by as much as 25% in comparison to horizontal hammer mills. Moisture loss during grinding is practically zero.

The Vertica is easy to use and to maintain. The housing of the grinding chamber can be lowered to give 360° access to the hammers and screens, making cleaning and replacement of any worn parts simple and easy.

The two-hand safety mechanism prevents improper operation of the machine to protect your operators. You can also choose to add temperature sensors and vibration detection systems for warning signals. The Vertica's noise level is typically half that of a horizontal hammer mill and can be controlled within 83 dB(A) for most common materials and recipes.

You can purchase your Vertica as a stand-alone machine or as part of a broader solution. We offer a whole range of automation solutions, from individual machine control to a full smart factory integration.
