VVB - Wood Pre Breaker

Mercilessly resilient – The primary wood crusher that really goes to town

The new Vecoplan primary wood crusher is THE efficient and economical solution for producing crushed and shredded material for energy recovery.

VVB – The primary wood crusher

A merciless power machine

The enormous flywheel mass of the rotor crushes all wood fed into its hungry maw. With our VVB power pack, you can achieve large material throughput volumes tailored to your application.
Even an impurity content of less than 2% is no problem for this machine – with its swivelling counter-knife unit and screen basket, it has been specifically designed to tackle such tasks.
The result? DIN EN ISO 17225-compliant fuel in sizes from P45 to P100.

The highlights of the new VVB wood crusher

Focus on ergonomics and throughput

The VVB knows no bounds when the rollers grab conveyor belt-fed material and feed it to its rotor – the machine is simply bursting with raw power.

The VVB also has no limits as far as ergonomics and maintenance are concerned: The cladding can be removed in just a few steps, ensuring safe & easy maintenance and dust reduction.
