High Accuracy Hammer Milling

With the M5A & D6A

Fitzpatrick hammer milling machines achieve a high degree of control over particle size distribution (PSD).


M5A & D6A Hammer Mill Machines.


High accuracy robust milling equipment

Having been in the milling sector for decades, we have gained unrivaled experience and knowledge.

The M5A & D6A models can offer manufacturers a wide range of particle size reduction targets with the ability to change or adjust rotor profiles, RPM and screen selection.

Powder quality is protected as our mills are designed to reduce retention rates and heat damage during the milling process.  Well-cared-for powders mean better flowing materials and improved system efficiency. 

Fast and cGMP-compliant cleaning can be accomplished due to the cantilevered rotor design and mono-block construction. 

All components can be totally dismantled and taken offline for thorough cleaning. This means improved hygiene and operator safety.
