wooden pallet recycling process

Plate Chain Conveyor Belt: It adopts a hinged galvanized chain plate for material transfer, which has the characteristics of large load capacity and strong wear resistance, and has functional control functions such as remote start/stop, emergency stop and speed.


Shredder: Wooden pallet products contain metals, such as nails and bolts, which pose a threat to general shredders. With intelligent control and nitriding-surface hardening rotors, Wanrooe shredders are not afraid of foreign objects.


Magnetic Separator: The type of magnetic separator is permanent magnetic self-unloading, which can effectively remove ferrous metals from wooden pallets, so that on the one hand the metals can be recycled and reused, and on the other hand reduce the metal from entering the back end of the chain so as not to affect other equipment.


Hammer Crusher: crushing the shredded wooden pallets into wood chips.


Magnetic Separator: separating the metal or iron nails etc. in the wood chips, separating the wood chips from the metal.


When selecting wooden pallet shredder(pallet crusher) for the processing of pallets and pallet scrap, the first consideration should be the intended use of the end product. Examples include animal bedding, boiler fuel, pellets & briquettes, cellulosic ethanol, landscape mulch, playground coverings, and composite wood.

The following criteria should also be considered for wooden pallet recycling:

– Required throughput
– Required final size
– Size and uniformity of in-feed pallets or scrap
– Method of feeding and collecting from the shredder or crusher

3. The main shaft is driven by a gear reducer box, with smooth running, low noise and high torque.
4. The PLC program control system is adopted, which can automatically forward and reverse, making the machine run stably.
5. The box is welded and tempered after welding, eliminating the welding stress.
6. The movable knife mounting position is machined by a machining center to ensure the same clearance of each movable knife and fixed knife.
7. The movable knife seat is attached to the knife shaft with high-strength screws in an embedded way, which can prevent the welded type from dropping the knife after long-term vibration.
