Case study in the wood sector

Treating damp and abrasive materials while maintaining a high level of efficiency

A large-scale sawmill wanted a high-performance dust collector to recover the particles from a high-speed molder. Working in the transformation of green lumber, the company wanted to reuse the slightly wet and abrasive particles emitted during the cutting of wood.

The challenge:

  • Design a dust collector capable of maintaining maximum performance in the treatment of green lumber and the emission of slightly damp and abrasive particles.
  • Optimize the process to reduce material loss to a minimum.

The solution:

Thanks to its constant and steady power of aspiration, the installation of a bag cyclone dust collector was the perfect means of meeting the need to recover the customer’s damp and abrasive particles. This solution facilitated the implementation of an efficient process for collecting wood chips and recovering them for other uses.

Benefits:

By analyzing the processes in place, the Concept-Air team found that it was still possible to maximize the use of the wood, especially by collecting chips, as well as dust. The sawmill now has facilities for:

  • treating much of the sawing residues;
  • Rendering profitable wood particles that were previously unused;
  • Obtaining products of better quality;
  • Increasing productivity;
  • Developing products for new markets.
