If you find yourself wasting time, materials, and money when managing chips or sawdust, then briquetting is for you. In industry, efficiency is synonymous with success.
Want to reclaim lost operational costs from wood production waste? Wood shredders are a great first step.
Our Industrial Wood Shredding Machines
Double Shaft Shredder – DVS
We Enable You to Process a Broad Variety of Wooden Materials
Whatever kind of wooden material you need to dispose of, we have the means to do it for you. You don’t need to worry about MDF wood residues or OSB residues slowing you down. All types of wood materials can be processed, including:
- Waste wood
- MDF residues
- And more!
Veneer shredding and timber shredding are all easily performed by our products. Don’t let sawmill cuts and shreddable pallets stack up, taking valuable operational space. Instead, invest in a quality industrial wood shredder.
Benefits of Waste Wood Shredding
Our wood waste crusher machines have the potential to revolutionize your wood production waste. From sawmill cuts to wasted palettes, too many companies choose not to convert their wood waste into the money-making material we know it can be.
Many companies produce a lot of waste wood, but not so many choose to process it further to maximize their profits and save on costs. Here are the main benefits of a wood waste shredder:
When It Comes to Logistics, Size Really Matters
Let’s talk about logistics and transportation. It’s so much easier to transport any kind of wood waste – whether it be wood scrap shredding, MDF shredding, MDF residues, shredding pallets, veneer shredding, or chipboard shredding. Using a waste wood shredder means it will turn the wood into a smaller form. It also saves companies a great deal on logistics, as there are more waste locations for recycling.
Recycle and Resell
Once the waste has been processed into smaller chips from shredding, it can be both recycled and resold in many ways. From being used for direct heat generation in combustion plants, for the production of briquettes, or using wood for biomass, smaller pieces of waste have more potential of being reused and made into a renewable energy source than waste that is still intact.
The wood processing method that turns the waste into recycled materials is much more cost-effective when it comes to money, materials, and energy. This wood waste utilization is also much cheaper than selling it in a loose form, as in recent years taxes on transport CO emissions have increased.
It Prevents Fire Hazards
Unmanaged waste can become a major fire hazard, especially if you work in an environment surrounded by high speed saws, mills, etc. If the waste is properly managed (i.e., by collection, shredding and briquetting), the materials can then be recycled and transported in a safe manner which reduces any risks of fire.
Holistic Waste Management
It doesn’t matter what kind of waste it is; companies that produce it have both a social and legal responsibility to manage and dispose of it in an environmentally friendly manner. By properly recycling wooden waste and using industrial shredders, companies become better at managing other waste streams, therefore engaging in a more eco-friendly and holistic waste environment.
It Preserves The Planet’s Natural Resources
The more this material is recycled, the fewer trees have to be cut down. Simple. Trees play an incredibly important role when it comes to sustaining the planet’s ecosystems – they release oxygen and impact the environment positively. Although the wood that trees provide is considered sustainable as it can be regrown, it takes many years for them to replant and regrow into what they once were. This means the level of demand with regard to woodland is not met.
Our Shredders For Other Types of Materials
Alongside our industrial shredders, we offer a variety of other machines, including:
An industrial paper machine or shredder is used in commercial settings. This isn’t your usual heavy-duty home shredder, but it’s just as easy to use. Industrial paper shredding machines are able to shred a large number of documents. Bulk shred your papers and files in seconds with one of these pieces of equipment.
A cardboard shredding machine is an industrial piece of equipment that instantly recycles or repurposes cardboard waste. These models produce chips or strips of cardboard. It replaces pre-formed or shaped packaging ready to be resold or recycled, as it can be easily molded to form new products or around new products.
Industrial Plastic Shredding Machines
These machines have a really important role to play when it comes to reducing the amount of plastic waste. Our shredders can also help increase throughput of granulators as a pre-shredding solution of bulkier materials.
These shredders help to rescue valuable metals that have the potential to remain locked in intricate products, including WEEE, uPVC windows, and end-of-life vehicles. What’s more, alternative fuel production plants and MRFs help remove any contaminants such as plastic films from metals, which would render them scrap otherwise.
Industrial biomass shredding machines help with the manufacturing of on-specification fuel, which helps with maximum recycling recovery.
Phases of Wood Shredding
The phases of wood shredding vary depending on what you plan to do with your waste. Likewise, the type of particle being used and the size you want your wood shredder to dismantle the material into affect the process.
1. Primary Wood Shredding
The dual-shaft shredders we have for sale are probably your best choice in this instance. This is because their rotor spins relatively slowly but with a huge force. This means the wood waste grinder will crush the wood into medium to small particle sizes, which is too big if you want your material to be broken down into briquettes.
2. Secondary Wood Shredding
Single shaft shredder is the best option if you want to achieve secondary shredding. This is due to their rotor spinning at higher speeds compared to the dual model. This means it can process smaller waste materials and shred them into even smaller pieces. Once your wood shredding equipment has shredded the waste, these chips can then be sold to power plants to be used to fuel energy production. Depending on final particle size and throughput requirements hammer mills are also an option.
3. Wood Shredding for Briquette Manufacturing
If you’re shredding wood chips to achieve small enough waste particles because you want to manufacture wooden briquettes, you will want to opt for our hammer mills. This type of shredding works best when you have wood that has already been processed, as it crushes it into medium to small particles that resemble sawdust. This wood waste grinding option can then be used to make briquettes.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you are considering purchasing one of our industrial shredders and you still have some questions, don’t worry. We’ve prepared a list of our most frequently asked questions to try and give you a better insight, or contact our representatives which will assist you in finding the best shredder for your purpose.
What is the Difference Between a Commercial Shredder and an Industrial Shredder?
Industrial shredders are built to be more robust than household shredders to tackle non-stop high throughput operations with tougher materials. They usually operate with industrial power supply standards rather than household appliance sockets and are more commonly used in a fixed location rather than mobile solutions meant for gardening.
Are Industrial Wood Shredders Safe to Use?
All of our industrial shredders, whether that be paper, cardboard, wooden, plastic, or metal, are manufactured to extremely safe standards. This means when used sensibly, with the correct training in place, and under the safety guidelines, they are very safe pieces of machinery to operate.
Can Industrial Wood Shredders Be Serviced?
To extend the lifespan of your industrial shredder, you will need to ensure it is serviced regularly. Service work and intervals depend on the model of shredder. Examples include regular lubrication of pre-designated points, changing of hydraulic oil and filters at specific intervals and adjusting, or replacement of rotor blades and counter knives for best efficiency. Our relationship with the customer does not end at the sale of the equipment. We are also offering constant post purchase support including questions regarding operation, warranty, service of equipment, as well as support for components and parts.
