Since 1925, Prater has utilized the most advanced technology and innovative solutions to create state-of-the-art Hammer Mill and size reduction products that are used around the world. Our exclusive G-Series, Full Screen, Hammer Mill is specifically designed for applications that require high capacities, power efficiency and uniform particle size. This provides our customers with confidence in knowing that we have the ideal machine for their unique particle reduction applications.

Our exclusive Full Screen design is a proven system that ensures use of the entire available screen area which enhances end product quality and hammer mill productivity. Hammer mill screens are strategically placed where extensive testing has shown the majority of milling and grinding takes place. This optimal placement increases throughput capacity without increasing power requirements and other costs. The design also simplifies screen changes by improving access to working parts.

The center feed and fully symmetrical rotors distribute the product across the full width of the screen area for even hammer wear. This allows the rotor to be reversed so that both edges of the hammers can be utilized before replacement is required. Correct clearance between hammers and screens is maintained by mounting all screens in heavy-duty frames. Rotors are wider for varied hammer arrangements, and are all supported between durable pillow block bearings. These proprietary design factors combine to provide a controlled, uniform granular grind with the benefits of easy maintenance.

Here we are removing grease balls built up in an anaerobic digester process from thewastewater at a milk plant. The pilot unit shown is running at approx. 150 GPM, we will use 2 larger units to reach the 400 GPM target.

Thats where we come in, by removing these particles (screeninganywhere from 15 to 100 micron) and leaving the micro-nutrients, your treatment system will work more efficiently. Fewersolids means less sludge and that adds up to savings.If you are paying the city a surcharge based on your BOD, COD or TSS that surcharge could be reduced or removed altogether.

A liquid is applied to the surface of the screen, that liquid is encouraged to go through the screen using our patented technology. All the solids that are larger than the screen openings stay on the surface and are washed away by the next step in our process. The liquid flowing onto the screennever stops not even during the self-cleaning.Screen poresizes range from 5 microns (um)all the way up to 5000 microns and screenscan be made from PP, PE, HDPE, Nylon, SS and many more materials. A 60 micron screen (20"X24") will pass more than 120 gallons a minute (GPM) depending on the percentage of solids in the liquid.

During the secondstep of the screening process the liquid is blocked from passing through the screen for about 0.25 seconds. This causes the liquid to expand onto the screen surface washing all the collectedsolids down the screen face toward thecollection bin below.The liquid "flow blocking" is stopped and the liquid is allowed through the screen again, all in less than 0.25 seconds.The amount of liquid lost during a self cleaning is normally less than 100 milliliters, any liquid collected in the solids bin can besent back to be screened again.In most cases the backwash liquid never reaches the bottom of the screen only the solids do. The self-cleaning step can be activated every 5 seconds if needed.

Our system technology can be applied to other types of screen units (Static Screens, Side Hill Screens, Bar Screens etc.)to increase their current flow rate or the same flow rate witha smallerscreenopeningsize.

Areaportals are like doorways that are either open or closed. When an areaportal is closed, it blocks the visibility of the geometry and other objects in the area behind it. When it is open, the geometry is visible again. Areaportals can be dynamically opened and closed while the engine is running. They are typically set to open and close from sets of trigger_multiple brushes using the entity I/O system or by linkage with a door entity.

The func_areaportalwindow entity behaves like a standard areaportal, with the addition of fading out and closing if the player moves a specified distance from it. This avoids the "pop" of an areaportal suddenly opening.

Open areaportals (whether they're always open, or triggered to open) have a behavior of culling geometry that is visible through the areaportal. Similar to looking through an open window of a house, only the visleaves that are directly visible through the areaportal will be rendered by the engine. In this way, the geometry in the next area is roughly 'culled' to the size of the window, decreasing the amount of geometry rendered, and increasing performance. On top of this, model (prop) geometry is not rendered at all unless part of the model is directly visible through the view frustum (or visible angle) of the areaportal. This makes open areaportals very useful to control visibility of model geometry.

Due to these performance benefits, areaportals are often used in an always-open state. An always-open areaportal is created by setting the "Initial State" keyvalue on the func_areaportal entity to "Open". Always-open areaportals are used at the openings to other areas containing large amounts of visleaves and geometry. For example, simply placing an always-open areaportal at the end of the hallway that opens into a wider expanse can produce a substantial performance gain. While the player is inside, looking out of the doorway, only the geometry that is in the each leaf directly visible through the doorway will be drawn.

Care must be taken to avoid having too many areaportals visible simultaneously. There is processing cost for each, and if portals are not culling enough detail drawing the scene without them becomes faster!

It is vital that any areas that an areaportal is supposed to seal off don't leak into each other. Just as with regular leaks, an area of the map is only considered sealed from another if it is completely surrounded by world (non-entity) brushes (with the exception of areaportal brushes), without gaps. If there are multiple ways that areas connect, each must be filled with an areaportal.

Areaportals must be used to seal every entrance to the area. func_detail brushes, translucent textures, and displacements cannot seal an area, and will generate leaks that prevent the map from running. If the compiler can still find a way between the two main surfaces of any one portal, it will report a portal leak.

These error messages are sometimes not as easy to spot as normal leak error messages, but when it comes to locating the leak in the map, vbsp will generate a pointfile to help you, just as for regular geometry leaks.

One other tricky aspect of using areaportals is that they are not allowed to cross water boundaries, like the water surface. To accomplish this, you will need to divide the portal into two - one areaportal above the water surface, and another areaportal below it - so that they both meet at the water plane.

For optimization reasons, areaportals that share the same plane (are aligned) are automatically merged by the engine. If this behavior is unwanted, simply ensure the areaportal brushes are not along the same plane. This is usually as simple as shrinking or moving one of the areaportals slightly in the editor so they are no longer aligned. Even one grid unit is sufficient to avoid an automatic merge.

Areaportals only cull between the areas that they seal off. Consider the image to the right: while the contents of the building are culled away as you would expect, visibility between visleaf one and two is unaffected because they are connected to each other via the sides of the building.

Areaportals are very useful in multiplayer games. Their creation is identical to those in single-player games, but their function and usage is slightly different. With multiple players in a game server, there is less control of when an areaportal is going to be open, and level performance needs to be optimized for worst case scenarios (i.e. when all visible portals are open). Because of this, in most cases, 'always open' areaportals are placed most often, followed by areaportals linked to doors, and then areaportals controlled by triggers. In worst case scenarios, well-crafted 'always open' areaportals will increase performance more than portals that are designed to be triggered.

An areaportal window can also be used seal structures in multiplayer, but are less useful because they can create gameplay imbalances in competitive multiplayer games. A player inside the structure that is near the areaportal window would be able to see any players outside, but players farther away outside would not be able to see the player inside.
