Storm Debris

Hurricane and storm debris grinders

Storm debris grindingOne of CBI's first grinders went on to process storm debris after Hurricane Andrew and our machines have been used in response to many major storms, including Hurricane Katrina. CBI grinders have a long history of working in tough, high-volume applications associated with material buildup after natural disasters. After Hurricane Michael hit the southern United States in 2018, many contractors relied on CBI grinders for their reliability and high production rates to process the excess material.

The design of CBI’s offset helix rotor minimizes energy loss from each strike and distributes material evenly across the 24 hammers, requiring less power while outproducing the competition. Watch some of the case study videos below to see how CBI machines are used in disaster response after storms and hurricanes.
