Peterson announces new 5050H stationary electric chipper
Peterson Pacific Corp. has announced the all-new stationary, electric 5050H Delimber Debarker Disc Chipper produces high quality low bark content chips for wood pulp and pellets, processing whole trees in one continuous operation.
Equipped with a large feed throat, the 5050H can accept up to a 23-inch (56 cm) diameter single tree or multiple smaller stems. The 5050H can be configured with a three or four pocket disc, with several optional sheave sizes to make precisely the chip you need. The standard three-pocket disc produces chips from 5⁄8 to 11/4 inches (16-32 mm) long, while the optional four-pocket disc produces chips from 1/2 to 1 inches (13-25 mm) long. Chipping production rates up to 150 tons (136 tonnes) per hour can be achieved depending on chip size and wood characteristics.
Peterson's heavy-duty 66-inch diameter, 4 3/4 inch thick (168 x12 cm) chipper disc has replaceable 1/2-inch (13 mm) wear plates. Traditional babbitt-type knives or Key Knife components are available. The stationary 5050H can be configured from 600 to 1000 hp (447-745 kW) at the disc depending on the needs of your application. An additional 600 hp (447 kW) electric motor powers the needs of the hydraulic system.
