High volume pulp chip and biomass producer

The PETERSON 6300B drum chipper is for high volume pulp chip and biomass producers who have a wide variety of feed material, with log diameterss up to 36-in (91 cm), to brush and small feed stock.

Powered by a 1050 HP (772 kW) C27 Caterpillar engine, (or an optional Tier IVi engine) the 6300B also features a PT Tech wet clutch.

At 85,000 pounds (38,555 kg), the 6300B was designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs.

The 6300B has two drum configurations, an 8-pocket drum to make standard biomass chips, or a 16-pocket drum to make microchips. An optional grate system has been redesigned to allow for adjustment from a microchip to a 1¼- inch chip with the same grates. Babbit type knife systems are standard, or an optional key knife system is available. Peterson’s chip accelerator system, adds load density, or throws chips well away from the machine for land clearing operations.

The chipper utilizes a 50-inch diameter by 60-inch (127x152 cm) wide drum. Other key features include a sloped feed deck for ease of feeding and wear resistant AR450 wear surfaces on drum pockets and shell. The feed chain has been upgraded to WDH120 for improved strength and long life.

Since 1981, Peterson has specialized in developing delivery and processing equipment that turns low-grade organic materials into high value products.
