Chip quality is how chips compare to the required standard, although different applications have different specifications. Chip quality is something which is measurable by the predetermined contract size, and the output. Included in it’s measurement may be length, thickness, and bark content, moisture content, contamination, or meet additional standards such as those for playground chips.
Dialing a machine in to get the desired output chips with each specific feedstock takes skill and time. Knowing your application and using Peterson’s Chip Quality Index will greatly reduce the hassles associated with getting the perfect chip.
Peterson machines have customizable components that allow the end user to maximize their acceptable chips, minimize maintenance and exceed productivity standards. Chips for all applications, all sizes, and any variance can be cross referenced in the Chip Quality Index.
