Peterson Pacific Corp., Eugene, Oregon, announced the new stationary, electric Peterson 5050H delimber debarker disc chipper designed to produce low bark content chips for wood pulp and pellets, processing whole trees in one continuous operation. 

Equipped with a large feed throat, the 5050H can accept up to a 23-inch diameter single tree or multiple smaller stems.

The 5050H can be configured with a three or four pocket disc, with several optional sheave sizes to make the necessary chip.

The standard three-pocket disc produces chips from 5/8 to 11/4 inches long, while the optional four-pocket disc produces chips from ½ to 1-inch long. 

Chipping production rates up to 150 tons per hour can be achieved depending on chip size and wood characteristics. 

Peterson’s 66-inch diameter, 4 ¾-inch thick chipper disc has replaceable 1/2-inch wear plates. Traditional babbitt-type knives or key knife components are available.

The stationary 5050H can be configured from 600 to 1,000 horsepower at the disc depending on the application. An additional 600 horsepower electric motor powers the hydraulic system.
