Chip Classifier

This equipment classifies wood chips into different sizes, using screens. It plays an essential production management role in making chips, ensuring production of chips of a unified size required, which contributes to securing of adequate digestion through maintenance of the chipper knife condition and efficient operation of the chip breaker and screens. It is also an important tester in commercial transactions that helps quality identification when purchasing wood chips. Screens of various types are assembled in the ascending order of the opening diameters. Chips are input into the screen with the largest opening first, and then they are vibrated to drop them through the screen to lower screens. Thus, chip specimens are classified by size to leave only small splinters collected in the bottom trash retainer at the end. You can check the distribution of chip sizes by weighing both the specimens left on the respective screens and in the trash retainer.
