CBI Customer Case Study
Smithfield Peat, Smithfield, RI
Smithfield Peat started as a stump dump and accepted stumps in until the piles were so high that the town started to complain. CBI was the only company that could deliver a complete system to process this hard to handle material and make a premium mulch in one pass. They purchased the heavy duty CBI stump shear to split the stumps. Then this wood is fed into a large feed system and onto a large disc screen deck which removes the dirt and smaller rocks. The material then passes by pickers for removal of any other contaminants prior to being ground in a 4872 Grizzly Mill. The radial stacking conveyor can stock pile the ground wood or send it to a secondary Mulch King grinder for a final grind. Since the startup in 1998 they have added a coloring machine at the end material is touched only once. This system has over 32,000 hours and still runs like the day it was installed.
