SSI Shredders and Reducers are an effective solution for high capacity primary processing of mixed wood for metal liberation and recovery, or bulky item reduction.
It’s a good thing we make reducers that can process 100+ tons per hour.
Wood Shredding Solutions
SSI Shredding Systems has a number of customers processing large wooden items. PRI-MAX® reducers are ideal machines to turn mixed, bulky wood waste into “floable” material streams that can be sorted and converted into usable products or energy sources for industry.
Typical system solutions include:
PRIMARY SHREDDING BEFORE GRINDING
High speed machinery can be damaged by metals and other materials entering them. They also work best when they are fed consistently sized materials at a controlled rate. The best way we know of to optimize a wood grinder is to install a PRI-MAX® reducer in front of it. Its faster and more efficient than pre-crushing with an excavator, and it can be set to feed the grinder at just the right flow rate to optimize the processing line.
Broken pallets, skids, crates, cable spools, boxes and C&D debris can all be size reduced, then recyclables and metals can be removed prior to being used as an energy source at a paper mill or power plant.
Large items need to be downsized prior to further processing, sorting or transportation to make them more manageable. PRI-MAX® and Dual-Shear® machines are ideal for this kind of application.
PRIMARY SHREDDING FOR C&D RECYCLING
SSI PRI-MAX® technology is flexible and works best when its bulk loaded . Operators count on PRI-MAX® to meter feed their MRFs and ensure the material is sized small enough to be well liberated so metals and other items can be sorted, but large enough so items are still recognizable and there aren’t many “fines”.
