CBI expands biomass equipment
August 30, 2011 By Continental Biomass Industries Inc.
Aug. 30, 2011, Newton, NH – Adding to its line of
productive portable grinders and chippers, CBI introduces the Magnum Force Disc
Chipper 754 and the Flail 604 debarker/delimber. This integrated, high-capacity
chipping system was designed specifically for logging contractors who want to
maximize throughput, minimize downtime, increase production, and decrease
The Magnum Force Flail 604 is a four-roll flail design
that has been engineered for high-volume debarking while reducing fibre loss,
chain wear, and fuel consumption. A completely enclosed system with no exposed
drive components provides for substantial containment of debris while reducing
maintenance and fire hazards. Full-width, large-diameter feed rolls ensure
continuous positive feed and provide high throughput of 150+ tons/hour. An
extra-long, hydraulic debris removal push ram is supported by framework to
ensure proper alignment and extend the life of the hydraulic cylinders. The
large-capacity Tigercat loader allows substantial wood per grapple and remotely
controls both the chipper and flail from the cab.
CBI’s Disc Chipper 754 uses a four-knife, 75-inch disc
chipper built by Fulghum Industries, has a 26-inch feed opening, and is
designed to move the flail in the field. The chip discharge chute is remote
operated, camera monitored, and folds hydraulically for transport. To reduce
landing costs, the trash separator and bark pusher both discharge on the
opposite side of the chip discharge, allowing a trailer to park parallel with
the chip system while being loaded. The bark discharge system is designed to
eliminate carryover, enabling high-quality chips at efficient production
levels. It can produce chip sizes from 3/8 inch to 1 inch.
Each heavy-duty unit was built to be legally transportable
and then designed to work together as one in the field.
