The Acrowood Rechipper is designed to reduce oversized chips to a smaller size. Chips slide down the flat-bottomed spout which uses the full length of knife and anvil for chipping. With excellent oversize chip reduction and high capacity, the Acrowood Rechipper is a superior choice for overs processing in the wood room.
Acrowood Rechippers are designed to reduce oversized chips to an acceptable size for pulping with minimal generation of pins or fines.
For maximum effectiveness chips would ideally be oriented so that the long axis of the chip would be perpendicular to the cut, and the resulting 2 pieces would each be half the length (approx.) of the original chip.
This classic machine has seen its best use in processing overs generated in sawmilling applications prior to the pulp mill. When generally large chips (+2″ round or square hole, and larger) and gross overs can be separated by a rotary screen, a rechipper is a good way to chop these up into smaller pieces before they are sent to the pulp chip van for transport.
Where the pulp mill chip buyer has established a size specification that limits the percentage of oversized and gross overs chips to a maximum allowable number, the use of the rotary screen/rechipper combo can typically achieve this with sufficient reliability.
