Debarking Drum Supplier
Greens Bayou Pipe Mill manufactures structural steel pipe in various sizes, wall thicknesses, and finishes for debarking drum applications. Products are fabricated per API 2B or ASME Section 8 Division 1 or Section 1 Stamp requirements, unless otherwise stated, from flat steel progressively rolled and welded into the finished size and shape.
What are debarking drums?
A debarking drum is composed of a large, rotating cylinder referred to as the drum. Its interior surface has ridges, which lift the logs and cause them to tumble against one another. Bark from the logs exits through slits in the drum.
Also called drum debarkers, they provide many benefits to wood product manufacturers. Examples include:
- High Capacity
- Feeds Many Logs Simultaneously
- Discharges Many Logs Concurrently
- Produces Logs With Smooth Surface Finishes
- Applicable For Wet And Dry Lumber
Why use structural steel to remove bark?
Structural steel pipe is perfect for drum debarking systems. Rust-resistant and durable, it can handle timber of all sizes and conditions, including wet and frozen trunks. Other characteristics of this pipe type include:
- Resists Corrosion
- Easy To Install
- Simple To Fabricate
- Great Capacity
- Environmentally Friendly
