Meat Processing Supplies
Sawdust, Maple & Hickory
We are proud to supply premium quality sawdust manufactured by PWI. This sawdust is manufactured only from untreated, virgin wood,
supplied by sawmills.
Our standard maple sawdust is manufactured using only maple wood, and is machine cut for uniform sizing. PWI does not mix in other hardwoods,
nor does it accept any recycled wood (i.e. furniture scraps, flooring materials).
Once cut, the sawdust is screened to remove all dust and fine particles, to produce an even smoke, resulting in a uniform smoke process. Once
cut and sifted, the sawdust undergoes a very high heat sterilization process, to eliminate harmful pathogens. It is then dried to lower the
moisture to 6%, which reduces the potential for new bacteria growth.
We have on file a complete analytical report for the “PWI”sawdust, with test results
included for yeast and mold, as well as for a full range of pesticides, metals, and PCB’s.
Please ask us for a copy and compare your current product with ours. Note that as
HACCP programs expand throughout our industry, quality considerations for sawdust
will be required.
