Stedman now is offering a line of fabricated hammermills for crushing, grinding and pulverizing, in types A, B and BX. According to Stedman, the line features lighter weight, more cost-effective models. The type-A hammermills (up-running) feature dual-mechanical reduction using revolving hammers to shatter materials upon entry and further disintegrate them against breaker plates. The type-B heavy-duty hammermills use heavy, reversible hammers and a saw-tooth breaker plate to produce uniform product. Type-BX medium-duty mills, similar to type B, have a larger feed opening for medium-hard, lumpy or bulky materials. B and BX models are down running hammermills.
