DRUM CHIPPERS

HT-series of drum chippers are the product of more than 40 years of experience in developing and manufacturing machinery related to wood waste reduction and utilization. For the production of high-quality wood chips made from short or long pieces of waste wood from the timber sizing and wood processing industry. Scanhugger equipment has been installed and serviced in woodworking plants all over the world. The drum chipper is unique in its capability of processing solid wood slaps, rib edgings and cut-offs into a uniform chip.

MORE THAN 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING

For more than four decades we have been designing and improving our wood chippers. We build our chippers to be as reliable as your customers need them to be. Each system is individually tailormade for your requirements. The Scanhugger HT line-up, coupled with a full range of options and auxiliary equipment enables Scanhugger to build turnkey wood waste utilization systems. The range of Scanhugger auxiliary equipment includes pneumatic discharge systems, chip conveyor and auger discharge systems, metal detection and metal separation systems, wood scrap conveyors and specially designed auxiliary hoppers.

TURN WOOD WASTE INTO PROFIT

Our reliable industrial wood shredders ensure the production of a homogeneous granulate. The granulate can then be used for in-house wood chip furnace, biogas plant, biomass co-generation plant and the production of wood briquettes. And this reduction in size also reduces your disposal, transport and storage costs. Regardless of how you are planning to use the wood chips, we will configure the shredder and auxiliary products for woodworking scrap exactly according to your needs.

PRECISION MACHINED DRUM CHIPPING

The rotor is a solid steel drum, precision machined to obtain the requested chip size and quality. The straight knives are mounted with a special wedge system that while utilizing the flywheel effect of the rotor, lock and secure the knives.

THE ROTOR – STURDY BY DESIGN

The rugged, heavy-duty frame and rotor, along with the chrome nickel shaft and over-sized roller bearings, are engineered to accommodate the heavy shock loads typical of shredders. Rotor and shafts for the HL 2/5/5 and HL 2/7/10 are turned from one piece of steel grade ST.60. All other rotors used for the HL-series are a two-piece construction using high-grade chrome-nickel steel for the shaft. The rotor body is turned from a steel tube ST.52. The rotor body and shaft are connected using high torque, conical power locks.

PERFECTLY SEATED COUNTER KNIFES

The counter knife support is divided into two parts: A stationary support that is firmly locked in place, and a removable part onto which the actual counter knife is mounted. This construction not only forms a precision seat for the counter knife but also allows for easy maintenance of the counter knife.

THE SMART INFEED ROLLER SYSTEM

Machined and surface hardened “pineapple style” infeed rollers stop when the rotor reaches its maximum load. As the load decreases, the feed works starts up again. This start/stop sequence eliminates overloads of the rotor.

ENGINEERED FOR DAY IN, DAY OUT PERFORMANCE

The rugged, heavy duty main frame and rotor along with the chrome nickel shaft and oversized roller bearings are engineered to accommodate the heavy shock loads typical of drum chippers.
