To reach sustainability targets, you need to utilize and save raw materials in the most cost-effective way. Chip quality is a really important factor affecting quality and total economy in the whole pulp, paper, board and fiberboard making process.
The condition of your chipper is a key to the production of high-quality chips.
Your chipper chips hundreds of thousands of tons of logs annually and during that time abrasion of the chipper disc, chipper knife equipment, spout, casing is very high. Chipper function and condition test provides information about the present state of your chipper and serves as a basis for proposals for improvements.
It is important to on a regular basis inspect front pedestal alignment and condition of bed knife pocket, joint of bed knife and feed spout, feed spout and chute, blower wings, knife maintenance, knife angles and settings.
Our experts will provide you a report with the results from the inspections and proposals for tuning and improvements.
