The Production Line

Cleanwood Chipper The Production Line
Now with a dust collector, the Chipper is a beast!

First Step

Raw hardwood pallets go into the first machine, the Chipper. It’s a beast. It smashes the pallets into chopped wood pieces like a T Rex smashing a dunny. A magnet separates all the metal nails and brackets which later get taken to Hackham Recycling.

Cleanwood Soundproof The Production Line

Second Step

The wood pieces are conveyed to the Crusher. This thing is a weapon, too! It turns all the big pieces of wood into sawdust.  Makes more noise than a 747 jet, but it is housed in a soundproof bunker to keep the neighbours happy (hi Sonya and Steve)

Cleanwood Toothpaste The Production Line
Smoking hot! Logs coming out of the piston press

Third Step

Sawdust is conveyed into a hopper and then delivered into the Piston Press.  Imagine a steam train engine with two bores sticking out of it. It makes a wonderful whumping sound as the pistons force the sawdust into the bores, it gets hot, the natural lignin in the wood forms a skin around the tubes, and voila! You have logs sliding out like toothpaste ready for cutting and cooling.
