CH 222 OEM Electric or Engin Powered Sawmill Chipper

 

A Chipper For the Furniture Industry

The CH 222 OEM version of the chipper has a 16" V-belt pulley and a drop chute feed. This model can be used by the furniture industry to dispose of short pieces and other wood residue. The CH 222 OEM also is the right chipper for sawmills, the chipper can chip 18" wide slabs.

Power Requirements

Due to the inertia of the heavy and large rotor, power units down to 35 HP can be used. About 7 HP is required for every inch of round wood diameter. Thus, to chip a 5-inch round wood, you need a 35 HP power unit (7 X 5 = 35).

Safety Features

The Valby chippers do not have any knife motion toward the operator-this reduces the risk of loose material flying back through the feed chute.

The knives are counter-sunk into the disk, so the stress of chipping is absorbed by the entire backside of the knife, not just the knife bolts.

The discharge height is 7'11" above ground so the discharge is above eye level. To accomplish safe operation in various wind directions, the Valby chipper's discharge direction is adjustable 360 degrees.

The deflector bonnet enables placing the chips near or far. The Valby chippers also have several noise-reducing features, such as the discharge opening is above ear level; it is adjustable and can be directed away from the operator.

Available Feed Chutes

The chipper can be used with two types of feed chutes: the F260 slab chute and the DF230 and DF 232 drop spouts.

The F260 has a control bar that runs on top of the feed chute. The feed can be interrupted by the control bar. The wide feed chute is used for slabs, poles, and other materials that need not be compressed.

The DF230 and DF 232 drop spouts are gravity fed, and can be used together with conveyors.

Ease of Operation

The low feeding point ensures effortless feeding of the chipper, thus allowing the operator to stand with a straight back. The discharge direction is adjustable 360 degrees.

The chipper stands up by itself on the ground and is easy to hook up or remove from the tractor.
