Micro Chips to Pellets

Due to the rise in the cost of heating fuel, the popularity of wood pellet fuel is growing at a rapid pace. Traditionally, pellets were produced from sawdust (a sawmill waste product). However, with the rapid-growing pellet market and a declining sawmill industry, producers have turned to using logs. They chip, grind, dry, pelletize and bag wood pellets – delivering a neat and easy-to-handle fuel for boilers and pellet stoves.

That’s why CBI developed a 4-Pocket Chipper Rotor that yields consistent 3mm - 6mm micro-wood chips at the rate of 50 – 100 tons per hour (depending on model).

Several advantages are derived from this:

  1. The hammermill power consumption is cut by 75%.
  2. The capital investment of hammermills is drastically reduced.
  3. The micro chips do not have to be ground before the dryer, allowing the product to be screened after the dryer resulting in a higher allowable bark content while still producing a premium pellet. CBI’s ability to deliver a portable or stationary chipping system that can incorporate a suitable debarker allows us to meet our customer’s exact needs.
