Our technician trained the plant personnel on the operation of the equipment and on maintenance practices to keep it running at peak performance, maximizing the return on their investment.

The Process

WSM partnered with this facility to design and supply a cost-effective system to reduce the amount of material entering landfills. The incoming materials from construction sites are sorted with “wood waste” and the system is designed to receive materials from a sorting belt, or by direct batch loading using an excavator to the grinder for the making of sized wood fiber. Once ground to size, the wood fiber then passes under a magnet for ferrous metal removal. The final ground product serves as fuel for generating electricity. The grinder’s ability to transform waste to reusable material is a great example of sustainability in action.

At West Salem Machinery, our high-quality industrial machines offer a solutions-oriented designs, always keeping your bottom line in mind.
