Obtaining quality fodder that meets the requirements of fodder receipts makes necessary the use of components that have to respect certain dimensions. The milled products must respect the granulation imposed by the receipt because they are very well assimilated by animals and the homogenization process is also very good. The milling process is a complex one, influenced by a number of factors that depend on the technical and constructive solution of the milling chamber and on the physical and mechanical properties of the processed raw material (seeds). In the hammer mills with open chambers and sieve surface up to 180 degrees, the presence of concaves (grooved plates) within the milling chamber is a must because it will lead to the acceleration of the seed milling process and implicitly to increase the productivity and reduce electricity consumption. The paper follows the theoretical and experimental presentation of an open chamber mill that is provided with these grooved plates.
