The Trommel is designed as an add on to a bulk processing system – cleaning the wood in the last step before packaging for bulk retail sale.  The Trommel will efficiently remove all fines (dirt, gravel, wood chips & splinters) through the fine screen and most of the kindling and smaller pieces of wood through the coarse screen. For wood yards this means the wood is cleaner, more saleable and results in more accurate weight measurement. With a constantly loaded infeed hopper, the capacity of this machine is estimated in excess of 60m3 per hour.

The Trommel can be customised to an existing firewood handling system, or it can be combined with a hopper/trommel or hopper/trommel/elevator configuration for maximum efficiency.
