Chipper disc reconditioning

The typical Valmet chipper annual throughput is millions of tonnes of logs in harsh operating conditions. The recommended reconditioning program with a five- to seven-year interval reduces the risk of failure and secures very short payback because of savings in white wood losses, consistent chip quality and optimal capacity. In addition, chipper knife runout and knife clearance setting can be done after reconditioning as per OEM recommendations.

Bedknife reconditioning

Periodic reconditioning results in consistently high chip quality, the maximum service life and excellent availability.

It’s good to combine Bedknife reconditioning with Bedknife pocket reconditioning at an interval of five to 10 years.

Feed spout reconditioning

Reconditioning extends the spout service life. Valmet Feed Spout Reconditioning guarantees the original dimensions, stabilizing log feeding to the chipper. Maintaining the spout top surface and keyway’s condition underneath results in steady log feeding and a perfect connection to the foundation, which are key factors for any chipper spout.
