Which types of residual timber can be shredded?
Off cuts

Shredding log butt ends or “off cuts” is a demanding application for a wood grinder.  The small pieces require an extremely robust machine to process the chunks because they explode on impact with the cutting tip. UNTHA shredders are specifically designed for this explosive impact.


characteristics and solutions

By producing a consistent sized end-product, residual timber can be a low-cost material to create a premium fuel product.  This material can be used in wood burners for heat production, as well as to produce steam for electric generation and biogas plants.

UNTHA offers several different machine designs with single or four-shaft shredders with different rotor lengths, diameters, and drive combinations.  Each unit can process this material to exact end product sizes to satisfy your end customer’s needs.

Whether it is a specific way to feed the shredding rotor or to convey the material away from the unit, each machine can be configured with the perfect options to enable it to perform above your expectations.  In addition, all the equipment purchased for wood processing applications come standard with a 3-year machine warranty.  Our years of experience and our application specific professionals can work with you on the entire project from conception to start-up to provide you with “one stop shopping” on your wood processing projects.

Pulper ropes

Pulper ropesaccumulate during the production of paper - or, more precisely, during the recycling of waste paper. Half of these so-called rejects generally consist of metal, which is why their processing is particularly arduous and challenging.
