What is Wood Drum Chipper Shredder?

By:Sunny  Time:2015-11-30


Wood shredder or tree shredder is very common in our daily life, and popular in woodworking industry. Newer chippers employ mechanisms consisting of a large steel drum powered by a motor, usually by means of a belt. The drum is mounted parallel to the hopper and spins towards the output chute. The drum also serves as the feed mechanism, drawing the material through as it chips it. It is colloquially known as a "chuck-and-duck" chipper, due to the immediate speed attained by material dropped into the drum.
 
Chippers of this type have many drawbacks and safety issues. If an operator becomes snagged on material being fed into the machine, injury or death is very likely. Chippers of this type are also very loud. The chips produced may be very large, and if thin material is inserted, it may be cut into slivers rather than chips, and since the drum is directly driven by the engine, materials that are too large or long may stall the engine while usually remaining firmly stuck in the drum.
 
Wood Drum Chipper Shredder is mainly small trail wood,lumbering remains(such as branches,twigs,tress pallets,waste of wooden box)and woodworking remain such as slab, plank, log core, waste veneer etc). It also can be used to chip non-lignin raw material (such as flax pole, bulrush, bamboo etc).
