Card Breaker System for drum-style chippers

Plus - new chipping drum for Beast XP recyclers available

Bandit Industries now offers a Card Breaker System for hand-fed and whole tree drum-style chippers. The Card Breaker works similar to a screening system, restricting oversized material from exiting the machine. The system is optional for most Bandit drum-style chippers, creating an even higher quality wood chip that is well suited for use in expanding biomass energy markets.

“Chips of relatively uniform size and shape are much preferred for use in biomass fuel wood applications,” said Jason Morey, Bandit Industries sales manager. “By creating a better chip, our customers can have a better product to sell on the biomass fuel market.”

Bandit’s Card Breaker doesn’t subtract from Bandit chippers’ legendary throwing power – in fact, it benefits from it. Chips leave the drum at an incredible speed, with larger sized chips hitting the Card Breaker installed in the discharge. This breaks the chips down further, resulting in a more uniform chip ready for biofuel applications. The Card Breaker System functions without the need for additional chip accelerating devices, and overall machine production is unaffected.

At the most basic level, wood chips are being used in biomass boilers to produce both heat and power. These facilities can range in size from large regional power plants to small, single-home heating systems. Outside this scope, several companies are converting wood chips into a petroleum product that could one day be a commercially viable alternative to fossil fuels. All around the globe, people are turning to wood chips to either supplement energy production, or to outright replace it. The result is an industry that is rapidly expanding.

Many professionals using hand-fed chippers aren’t selling chips for biomass use. Just the opposite; they often have to pay to dispose of their chips.

“Bandit is already a leader when it comes to quality and uniformity of its chips,” said Christopher Smith, Bandit Industries marketing and communications director. “With our Card Breaker System, producers can make a higher quality product that can open up new revenue streams. Instead of paying to dump their chips, they could be getting paid for a valuable end product.”

Chipping Drum for Beast XP-Series Recyclers Now Available

Bandit also recently announced a new chipping drum option that replaces the traditional Beast cuttermill. Designed for companies that want to exclusively chip with their Beast, the new drum essentially converts the Beast into a whole tree chipper. A variety of screens can be paired with the drum, creating a screened end product that can be tailored to meet various specifications for nearly any biomass energy application.

"Beast users can have the best of both worlds-high quality, screened dimensional wood chips from a traditional whole-tree chipping drum," said Jason Morey, Bandit Industries sales manager. "Because of the large infeed opening in the Beast, it can better process large, bulky material that would be difficult for whole-tree chippers to handle."

Chipping drums can be ordered on new Model 2680XP, 3680XP, and 4680XP Beast Recyclers, or retrofitted to older units. With more municipalities and companies around the world turning to biomass as an alternative to fossil fuels, the chipping drum option for Beasts can help users supply these lucrative markets.

 "Our XP-Series Beast Recyclers are already industry leaders for production and reliability," said Christopher Smith, Bandit Industries marketing and communications director. "Now that a dedicated chipping drum is available, these machines are more capable than ever at meeting the strict sizing requirements for various fuel wood markets, and for the production of high-yield wood pellets. And with the versatility to function either as a waste reduction recycler or a whole tree chipper, the Beast is truly in a class by itself."
