Industrial Herb & Spice Crushing Equipment



Got to crush some garlic?

Need to grind some pepper?

Sorry – our industrial equipment probably won’t fit on your countertop.


But Stedman Machine Company does design, develop and deliver high-performing, low-maintenance hammer mills and industrial crushers ideal for large-scale grinding, milling and processing of herbs and spices.

Stedman Machine’s reliable, durable cage mills and hammer mills are expertly engineered, sturdily constructed, and rigidly tested to meet the exacting specifications you require for demanding herb and spice reduction.


Supplying the product you need

Stedman Machine’s H-Series, F-Series cage mill, Y-Series cage mill, and full circle hammer mills deliver the power and performance you need for grinding and milling herbs and spices.

Stedman’s quality industrial herb & spice crushing equipment can efficiently and expertly process six or seven tons of products every hour.

H-Series Cage Mill

The Stedman H-Series Multi Cage Mill pulverizes, grinds and crushes abrasive and non-abrasive materials – wet, sticky or dry. The H-Series model works more efficiently than other types of pulverizers and provides a finer, more uniform grind.

Use the H-Series cage mill to crush herbs and spices, aglime, animal feed, corn, fertilizer and agricultural gypsum.

  • Reliable: Can handle up to 240 tons per hour
  • Durable: Reversible for extended wear and operates at or near-peak efficiency longer
  • Versatile: Can produce various gradations by changing mill specifications
  • Practical: Hydraulically-operated, quick-opening housing allows for easy access for inspection and to service
  • CE and TUV compliant

F-Series Cage Mill

The F-Series Cage Mill Crusher features a unique flared discharge opening, efficiently reducing the wettest and stickiest of materials without clogging and decreasing downtime for cleaning.

Use the F-Series cage mill for moist material in industrial herb & spice crushing.

  • Flared housing eliminates corners that trap material, reducing clogging
  • Capable of multi-stage reduction
  • Variable mill speed
  • CE and TUV compliant

Y-Series Cage Mill

Stedman’s screen-less, hammer-less herb and spice grinders are guaranteed to reduce your maintenance time and expense. This economical Cage Mill Grinder has no hammers or screens to replace and an open discharge that won’t plug. With 1/2 to 70 TPH capacities, it features a low-profile modular design and can quickly change from coarse to medium grind gradations.

The Y-Series is a multi-cage mill designed for sizing thousands of minerals and agglomerates. For less abrasive materials where large capacity, high-yield, and uniform particle size are required, Y-Series models are a perfect choice.

Y-Series cage mills offers non-abrasive reduction to the size of salt for herbs & spices.

Features and Benefits

  • Open discharge minimizes plugging
  • No screens required
  • Easy bearing and motor access
  • Capable of producing a variety of product gradations, by changing the mill speed
  • CE and TUV compliant

Full Circle Hammer Mill

In a hammer mill, rectangular pieces of hardened steel are attached to a shaft and rotate at high speed inside the milling chamber. The grain then encounters a changeable screen with a “close tolerance” gap between it and the rotating hammers. Finally, the grain passes through a screen before exiting the mill.

Hammer configuration, rotation speed and screen sizes can be varied to process different grains, and each component can be changed individually.

Use Stedman’s full circle hammer mill to grind herbs and spices.

  • Capacities up to 35 tons per hour
  • Higher throughput due to greater screen area
  • Compact size means a small footprint
  • Easily accessible doors
  • Quick release screens
  • Reversible
  • Externally adjustable intake
