Grinding pallet scrap is not for the faint of heart. It’s actually one of the toughest mixes of material to grind in the forest products industry. Keeping this unique challenge in mind, Cresswood Shredding Machinery has developed its EVER-NEW technology to tackle the demands of pallet scrap grinding along with reducing costs of machine ownership, and operational headaches.
Jack Cress, CEO of Cresswood said, “Reality Check – The pallet industry is a hostile environment for grinding equipment – it’s what we call extreme grinding.”
Jack further explained, “Without a doubt the most challenging applications on the planet for this kind of size reduction and recycling equipment are found in pallet repair, and in pallet manufacturing operations converting scrap material. High-volume pallet repair and recycling facilities can literally reclaim 2 – 3,000 pounds of nails per day from pallets and pallet components processed through our low-RPM, single-shaft grinders. That’s roughly equivalent to the weight of an original Volkswagen beetle.”
