Plate Chain Conveyor Belt: It adopts 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 wood 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 wood pallet disposal shredding machine(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 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

What is a wood pallet?
The wooden tray is a tray made from natural wood. It is a wide tray now. The tray is a horizontal platform for containers, stacking, handling and transportation, placing goods and products in unit load. Because it is cheap and strong, it is widely used.


What are the problems with wood pallets?
Wood tray is mainly in terms of health, clean, and production stability. Wood is easily tidal, moldy, insects, and cannot be cleaned. In addition, the surface of the wood and screw corrosion problems cannot be overcome.


Why do we need to recycle wood pallets?

Wood Pallet is a widely used packing solution for cargo transportation due to its convenience and easiness of handling. This would be originated in the 20th century ’30s, the US Army for the first time used pallets to improve cargo transporting and handling efficiency, ensuring the material supply. After that, pallets became widely used in countries around the world.

Nowadays, in the US, 80% of the merchandise trades are transported by pallet, in Europe, 0.28 billion pallets are in use and circulated among enterprises each year. In China, there are about 0.1 billion pallets in use. Among all these pallets, 90% of them are wood pallets. The recyclable plastic pallets only take up 8%. The use of this large proportion of wood pallet is because wood pallet is cheaper and stronger. How do recycle scrap wood pallets in a cost-effective and efficient way? Wood pallet recycling machines like wood pallet shredders can help.

Along with the wide use of wood pallets, every day it generates a large volume of waste/broken wood pallets that needs to be disposed or recycled. Shredder is very necessary and important equipment in the recycling process of wood pallets. Wood pallets after the shredding, grinding and drying process can be made into wood powder. No matter in our houses and offices, there are a lot of furniture, windows, and doors made from wood powder. In some power stations, the wood powder is used as a green fuel to generate electricity. Waste wood pallets after shredding, drying and the carbonizing process can also be made into smokeless charcoal. In the paper-making industry, wood pallets after the shredding and chipping process are made into wood pulp, and then made into new paper.


What are the highlights of wood pallet shredder?
Pallets can be processed by single shaft shredder or two shaft shredder. Both have their benefits and cons.

1. The knife seat and blades on the rotor are removable for easy cleaning, maintenance and servicing.
2. Each moving knife has 4 cutting edges, which can be rotated 90° for further use after wear.
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.
8. Easy transportation after shredding, which can reduce transportation costs, increase transportation efficiency and facilitate secondary processing.
