We represent two significant companies that are involved in Wood Energy; namely Bruks and West Salem.
Bruks can supply the complete processing; conveying and storage of Biomass and other wood by-products. Refer to the Chipping Systems, Drying Systems, and Residue handling and processing for additional information.
West Salem (WSM) specialize in providing the heavy duty screening and size reduction equipment needed to keep your fuel processing system operating on a 24/7 basis. WSM sets the standard in machine design, construction, and performance. From high volume hog fuel processing — to shredding — to fine-grind Hammermills.
Biomass Hogging options
WSM manufacture the Big Brute. The machine is based upon WSM’s proven 4064BH Horizontal Hogging System. Designed for green waste, land clearing debris and whole tree reduction, The Big Brute converts your waste products into valuable wood fiber in a single pas.
The heavy duty design includes a Multi-Strand WD-110 feed chain, a Massive 44" diameter feed roll with aggressive serrated bars to provide a positive feed to the hog rotor. The 4064BH rotor is fully machined and features a 9.25" diameter main shaft, mounted on heavy-duty dual row spherical roller bearings in cast steel housings with removable support blocks.The open disc construction improves feed characteristics and allows the operator to change hammer patterns without having to weld and cut on the rotor assembly. WSM's unique pivoting rear housing provides unparalleled access to screens and hammers without having to crawl under the feed roll or into the hogging chamber. The Big Brute discharges onto a single flat-to-incline belt that comes standard with a magnetic head pulley which folds hydraulically for transport. An optional overhead, self-cleaning magnet can be provided for critical ferrous removal applications. The Big Brute: "Built to Grind; Built to Last."
The Big Brute features WSM's new Intellifeed proportional hydraulic controls. This PLC based system uses proportional hydraulic valves to infinitely vary in-feed system rates providing a constant flow of material through the hogging system at peak horsepower while optimizing throughput. The Big Brute: "The Ultimate Grinding Machine."
