Save on Energy Cost and Increase Efficiency
Your plant can become more energy efficient with the Capital Heavy Duty Veneer Scrap Hog. You can easily dispose of scrap veneer while providing fuel for wood-fired boilers that generate heat for vats and dryers. High quality wood waste generates more BTUs allowing your plant to become more self-sufficient. Excess wood chips can be sold to makers of particle or flake board at a profit. In some plants, wood-fired boilers are used to provide heat for drying the veneer and for cooking the logs. Additionally, steam may be used to generate electricity. A Capital Hog doesn’t cost you money; it makes important profits for you.
The Capital Heavy Duty Veneer Scrap Hog has dynamically balanced cast steel hog heads and cutting bars manufactured with high precision machining to exacting standards for smoother and quieter operation and a longer life for the roller bearings. Because of its scientific knife action, it “chews up” more scrap with 1/3 to 1/2 the power needed by a hammer hog … and with much less noise. An optional grid screen enables you to control the size of the material which comes out. Roller bearings and rugged construction mean extra long life and freedom from down time. Capital hogs may be supplied with motor and attached base or as a complete package assembly including hog motor, blower and blower motor and framework.
You can choose a hopper-type or conveyor-type Capital Heavy Duty Veneer Scrap Hog which can be set in a pit in the floor, so that scraps can be easily pushed onto a conveyor belt operating in a trough in the floor. An optional upper hold-down conveyor controls the rate of feed of material for a more consistent flow to help prevent clogging. A metal detector installed in the conveyor is recommended to help reduce downtime due to metal trash. Capital has been building Heavy Duty Hogs since 1925 and many are still in use after fifty years of service. Famous Capital service and genuine Capital parts are in stock for quick service.
