Peterson 2700C Horizontal Grinder in Scrap Board Video

This Peterson 2700C horizontal grinder is reducing saw mill scrap board to make hog fuel.

he 2700C is Peterson's latest generation of high production portable grinders. Powered by the Caterpillar C13 engine at 475 horsepower (354 kW) or an optional C15 at 580 (433 kW) horsepower, this model provides plenty of power in a compact grinder. At 55,600 pounds (25220 kg) the 2700C was designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs. With a feed opening of 60¾ x 32 inches (1534 x 813 mm) combined with Peterson's high lift feed roll for an optional opening of up to 44 inches (1118 mm) high, the 2700C can readily reduce a wide range of material.

The 2700C utilizes Peterson's new generation of Impact Release System that can be set in the detent mode to provide consistent product sizing or switched to the floating anvil mode for a primary reduction where accurate sizing is less critical. The floating anvil mode provides a high production primary reduction with more protection from contaminated feedstocks and reduced fuel consumption.

The 2700C's new generation of controls includes Peterson's high production Adaptive Control System and a fully adjustable feed system that is optimized for a wide range of materials. The new control panel provides self-diagnostics for faulty sensors and open circuits. Fault indicators make trouble shooting easy. The 2700C control panel features a large LCD display that provides the operator with complete engine and system parameters to simplify set up and efficiently operate the unit.

The 2700C features a large grate area that enables the 2700C to produce materials to exact specifications. Our quick-change multiple grate system makes it easy to customize grate configurations to produce a wide variety of finished materials. Grates are removed through an access door on the side wall of the 2700C.

Another major innovation included on the 2700C is Peterson's Impact Cushion System. Urethane cushions allow movement of the compression roll/anvil housing pivot shaft, cushioning impacts due to contaminants in the feed material. Shear pins above the cushion and a sensing circuit that stop the engine help protect the shaft from catastrophic damage in the event of a severe impact.

Peterson specializes in developing delivery and processing equipment that turns low-grade organic materials into high value products.
