When the customer uses the wood flour machine to process wood flour, the customer’s raw materials are divided into two types: dry and wet. The dryness and humidity of the raw materials will directly affect the milling effect and output of the wood flour machine. We recommend drying the raw materials before crushing so that the crushing effect will be better.

In general, when processing wet wood, work efficiency and output will be much reduced. Compared with wet wood, the dried material will be more easily crushed by hammers and blades, the fineness of the wood is also lower, and it is easier to meet the requirements of the finished product.

The wood itself is not very hard. Once it encounters water, the higher the humidity, the more difficult it’s to crush. This will cause the final crushing effect to fail to meet the required discharge requirements, and may even fail to crush. This will seriously reduce the working efficiency, and even cause certain damage to the wood crusher, and affect the performance of the equipment.


The difficulty of crushing wet wood is reflected in the following aspects. On the one hand, the high humidity of the wood may cause the wood to block the aperture of the screen during the crushing process, which will increase the difficulty of cutting. On the other hand, the long-term use of wet wood may cause the machine to be easily damaged and rusted.

Therefore, we require users to check the humidity of their wood before buying a wood shredder. The humidity is kept within 40%, or it is best to dry first.

In general, the wood crusher can indeed process the wet wood, but it is best to control the humidity within 40%, so that not only will not affect the output but also will not shorten the service life of the machine.
