West Salem Machinery wood waste grinders feature easy maintenance and long-term productivity

West Salem Machinery (WSM) offers rugged and reliable Horizontal and Vertical Grinders/Hogs, as well as screens and conveyors. WSM  wood waste processing machines feature a unique pivoting top case  that allows access to preventative maintenance areas, with all infeed components remaining in place. According to the Oregon-based manufacturer, their Ballistics Infeed Chute, included on their line of Vertical Grinders is a unique design that helps capture tramp metal and other uncrushables - helping to protect the grinder rotor and reduce maintenance expenses.  

WSM Introduces the New Titan Trommel Screen – a Revolution in High Capacity Screening

The new Titan Trommel Screen from West Salem Machinery  is an ultra-heavy duty rotary drum screen specifically designed and manufactured for severe duty screening applications requiring high throughput and reliable long term operation. The Trommel Screen is available with drum sizes of 6 ft., 8 ft., and 10 ft. diameter with lengths from 25 ft. to 62 ft. long.

Biomass Super Shredders

West Salem Machinery’s (WSM) Biomass Super Shredders mesh a heavy-duty grinder with a high-speed mill to provide a highly durable, efficient machine. Units are available with rotor widths from 1,524 mm (diameter) by 2,235 mm (long) (60-inch to 88-inch) and are designed to deliver higher tip speed for smaller, consistent fibre sizing. Increased screen area allows high throughput, and flexible/interchangeable tooling provides versatility.  

Two-Pass grinder

These two-pass grinding systems are engineered to convert larger size material using lower horsepower and less energy. Units are ideal for C&D as well as green waste, and combine a slow-speed high torque shredder and a high-speed vertical feed grinder. The high torque shredder is the primary grinder used for the initial reduction of coarse material down to a 20- to 24-inch minus. The vertical feed grinder then produces the finished product.

Titan horizontal grinders

Titan Series horizontal grinders are specifically designed to process high volumes of biomass feedstock, including stumps, land clearing and urban wood waste, into high quality biomass fuel and other finished fibre products. The Titan is a complete grinding system with a heavy-duty multi-strand drag chain infeed conveyor, a large diameter powered feedroll, and a fully proportional load sensing feed controller for efficient feeding of material into the grinder. This stationary electric grinder can be supplied with single or dual electric drive motors for efficient and economical operation, with drive sizes from 400 to 1,500 hp.

Titan horizontal grinders

Titan Series horizontal grinders are specifically designed to process high volumes of diverse types of biomass feedstock, including stumps, land clearing and urban wood waste, into high quality biomass fuel and other valuable finished fibre products. The Titan is a complete grinding system with a heavy-duty multi-strand drag chain infeed conveyor, a large diameter powered feedroll, and a fully proportional load sensing feed controller for efficient feeding of material into the grinder. The massive rotor assembly features rigid hammers with reversible/replaceable tips, and modular sizing screens ensure a consistently sized, premium quality finished product. This stationary electric grinder can be supplied with single or dual electric drive motors for efficient and economical operation, with drive sizes from 400 to 1,500 hp. According to WSM, Titan Series Grinders are ideal for use at biomass power facilities where there is a demand for mill-duty equipment that delivers high volume production, reliable operation, and reduced maintenance and operating costs.

Two-pass grinder engineered for energy savings

West Salem Machinery’s two-pass grinding systems are engineered to convert larger size material with lower horsepower requirements and less energy usage. The two-pass system combines a slow-speed high torque shredder and a high-speed vertical feed grinder. The high torque shredder is the primary grinder used for the initial reduction of coarse material down to a 20 to 24-inch minus. The vertical feed grinder, or secondary grinder, then produces the finished product. Pre-screening technology is also available, which when added after the primary shredder and before the secondary grinder, will remove acceptably-sized material and metal contamination before it enters the secondary grinder. This two-pass unit is designed to efficiently handle a range of infeed including green waste, urban wood waste, food waste and C&D materials. West Salem Machinery #1236

5472BH Titan grinders

5472BH Titan horizontal grinders are specifically built to process high volumes of stumps and wood waste for various applications. These grinders feature modular sizing screens, a 54-inch diameter by 72-inch rotor assembly with rigid hammers and replaceable tips, and an 800-hp electric drive system that utilizes dual 400-hp motors. Capacity ranges from 40 to 100 tons per hour, and units are available in a range of sizes with drives from 500 to 1,500 horsepower.

Hydraulic case makes grinders faster and safer

West Salem Machinery (WSM) has added a hydraulic case option for horizontal grinders. The use of a pivoted, split-front housing combined with dual hydraulic cylinders mounted to the sides of a grinder, make units faster, simpler, and safer to open. A large opening offers great access to common wear components, including the anvil, hammers and screens, and this design improves machine access, decreases downtime and increases safety.

Stationary trommel

West Salem Machinery recently introduced the latest addition to their line of stationary screens for the recycling industry. The model 1060 trommel features a 10-foot diameter by 60-foot long heavy-duty drum for high volume screening applications. The screen design includes heavy-duty trunion rings and steel wheels for improved wear life, modular screen design, segmented chain drive with variable speed, full dust enclosure, a heavy duty support structure, and optional infeed/ discharge conveyors.
