West Salem Machinery (WSM) has introduced its Bale Processing System, an automated, high-volume processing system for baled agricultural residuals. Consisting of five integrated processing modules to process 40-50 bales per hour, WSM says the system delivers process ready feedstock for large scale biofuel, bio-refining, bio-power and agricultural feed operations.
Bulk receiving, singulating, orientation and inspection are the first stage of the process. The unique quality control (QC) inspection station with reject option provides an added layer of protection, while WSM’s Bale Destringer removes twine, with an adjustable opening to handle various sized rectangular bales.
In addition, the company says the built-in disposal system removes string from the processing line. WSM’s Bale Chopper deconstructs the bale and performs the initial size reduction.
The Screening/Cleaning System can reduce maintenance by pre-screening dirt, grit, ferrous metal, and other contaminants from chopped fiber and classifies sized material prior to milling for reduced power consumption.
Operators can produce process-ready feedstock, sized to work with your conversion technology, with WSM’s massive Super Shredders. The high capacity and high efficiency machines, suitable for 24/7 operations, ensure users the finished product they need.
