Industry and Material Specializations

 

Size reduction provides a means of utilizing many types of dry solids which can be reclaimed, recycled, burned as fuel, or used to generate mulch. Hogs are used to devour waste materials – especially wood waste from sawmills, dimension mills, plywood plants, and other woodworking operations.

 

Hogs are also used to grind bark removed from raw logs in sawmills and pulp mills, most of which is burned for fuel.

 

Other applications include pallets, whole logs, veneer scrap, engineered wood products, automobile tires, light aluminium, thin plastics, and polymers.

PM-KC - Bark

The punch-and-die system of the PM-KC provides an energy efficient means of processing large volumes of bark, including stringy bark such as Hickory, Cypress, and Basswood.

With robust construction and tramp metal protection, the PM-KC has been designed to handle the toughest of sawmill environments.

It has an average bark processing capacity of up to 68 tons per hour.

PM-KC - Chips & Shavings

For regrind applications, the PM-KC offers an energy efficient way to process large volumes of material.

All KC models feature an overlapping cut configuration, which is optimal for grinding stringy material like chips or shavings.

PM-KC - Gypsum

PM-KC - Plastics & Polymers

The PM-KC's punch-and-die system provides a unique ability to process light plastics, polyurethane scrap, and polymers for recycling into source product for industrial applications.

It can also be configured with special thin plate screens to better process oil shale and plastics.

PM-KC - Veneer

While almost an insurmountable challenge for traditional hammer hogs and grinders, the Montgomery punch-and-die system is ideally suited to process thin and stringy veneer scrap.

All KC models feature an overlapping cut configuration, which allows for successful processing of soft, spongy, or stringy materials.

PM-KC - Wood

The PM-KC effectively processes wood blocks, slabs, logs up to 85 pounds, broken pallets, and 60" whole pallets. From green log cuts to kiln dried trims, it provides an effective way to recycle many forms of wood into premium quality wood fiber or landscaping mulch.

It has an average wood processing capacity of up to 20 tons per hour.
