Pezzolato introduced a new special firewood production equipment for large scale distribution to resellers.
The plant was designed with the aim of producing large quantities of firewood, processing logs with variable lengths (up to a maximum of six meters) and inhomogeneous diameters, and then, stacking it on pallets and in bulk, supply the retailers located on the French territory.
The plant is structured with the following sections:
-A log loader with 30 tons capacity, four chains, 10 meters length and a separator;
-TLA 18 cutting unit, equipped with 1800 mm diameter disc and 75 kW motor, to process large bundles of mixed material or single logs with variable diameters (up to a maximum of 710 mm) with electronic control of the cutting operations in automatic.
There is a shifter, managed by the operator on the cutting unit, which transfers the cut logs to the independent splitting stations and a 27 tons four columns independent splitting station with laser device for measuring the diameter of the cut log and for centering the splitting grid automatically.
-A 40 ton independent automatic splitting station TB 900 to work diameters up to 900 mm
In addition to that, there’s a cleaning section of processed logs with cleaning rollers that receives all the processed material from the wood splitters (to give flexibility to the system, a cleaning rollers by-pass has been set up in the kindling logs production cycle);
-A feeding conveyor for pallet stacking stations with vibrating hopper for firewood logs recirculation. At the end there are sloped and suspended conveyors for the transfer/ storage of the processed wood.
