Shred pallets and packaging wood into profit

Our robust industrial wood shredders were developed to handle all types of wood waste; including single-use pallets, damaged euro pallets, and packaging wood.

Varying on the required throughput, we offer a range of shredders that were designed with the shredding of pallets and packaging wood. As the design of the system including the hopper and conveyor system is adapted to your individual requirements, loading may be done either by conveyor belt, wheel loader, forklift, grabber or even manually.

Depending on the pallet cutter, throughputs of up to 6000 kg/h may be reached with very low energy consumption. The material is removed by conveyor belt, screw conveyor, spiral conveyor or suction system, depending on the required solution. The granulate size is homogeneous and ranges between 15 to 250mm, depending on the diameter of the screen and the intended use.

Premium granulates free of metal

All our industrial wood shredders and chippers produce a very high quality granulate for the immediate use in wood chip heating systems or to produce briquettes. Metal parts such as nails, screws, clamps or metal fittings are no problem for the cutting system in the HL-series wood shredders: The metal is shredded together with the pallets and packaging wood. Then removed by an over band magnet raised perpendicular to the chip conveyor. The iron particles are then dropped into a collecting tray or box. No matter your preferred output we got you covered.

Shredding contaminated wood waste with ferrous metals in them, as with pallets and crates that have reached the end of use, the slow turning industrial wood shredders is the optimal choice. From there the shredded wood chips with metal are sent under an over band magnet where the ferrous metals are separated from the conveyor belt.

General information on pallets and wood packaging

Pallets and wood packaging are an integral part of modern-day transport and warehousing operations. However, the production of euro pallets, single-use pallets, crates and wood packaging, in general, generates a high volume of wood waste, both at production and the product has reached the end of life. Wood waste which may be leveraged as a source of energy. In combination with waste wood from damaged pallets or wood packaging, for instance, vegetable or fruit crates, this is an opportunity to generate new fuels for thermal recovery.
