Wood is an essential material, and the wood, lumber, and timber industries understand its importance. The world relies on wood for construction, commercial, and industrial applications, to name only a few. Because wood is biodegradable and recyclable, slow-speed shredders play a crucial role in the wood’s lifecycle. When wood and wood-based materials reach the end of their life where they start to rot, they need to be shredded down into sizes that are easier to recycle and process. These shredder machines can handle wood waste with extreme ease and efficiency. Their large hoppers allow them to take in a wide variety of materials of different shapes and sizes. Once those materials enter the cutting chamber, the machine’s heavy-duty knives quickly and effectively slice through the wood until only a pile of scraps is left.
Slow-Speed Shredders for Wood Industry
The wood industry relies on high-quality equipment to keep the job moving, which is exactly why it can rely on dependable slow-speed shredders. For optimized power capabilities, these heavy-duty shredders are equipped with a powerful diesel engine that works together with a hydrokinetic clutch mechanism that guarantees up to 95% efficiency in power transmission, keeping the shredders operating at maximum capacity. This allows these dependable shredder machines to shred up to 120 tons of wood waste in just an hour, providing greater efficiency and stronger shredding strength. These are the types of shredders that can take on the large-scale operations that are common when handling wood waste. With their industrial knives and high-torque power, the shredders can rip apart some of the thickest and toughest wood, rendering it all into a pile of splinters that are ready for the next step in the recycling or disposal process.
