Peterson Pacific announces the new 5050H stationary electric chipper
Eugene, Or.-based Peterson Pacific has announced the all new stationary, electric Peterson 5050H delimber debarker disc chipper. Peterson says the 5050H 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 2-3/4-in. (16- 32 mm) long, while the optional four-pocket disc produces chips from ½ to 1- in. (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-in. diameter, 4-3/4 in. thick (168 x 12 cm) chipper disc has replaceable 1/2-in. (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.
