  • Eliminating VOC From Wood Industry Processes

    ELIMINATING VOC FROM WOOD INDUSTRY PROCESSES As regulations controlling VOC and the environment become increasingly strict at local, national and international level, manufacturers in an increasing range of industries are having to consider appropriate action. The wood industry is no exception. In the manufacture of moulded wooden doors, for example, wood shavings and sawdust are bonded together ...


  • Concentrations of organic wood preservatives in wood chips produced from wood wastes

    We investigated the concentrations of wood preservatives in the wood chips produced in wood-waste processing facilities in 1988, 1998–1999, and 2001–2002. Among the wood preservatives used in the past in Japan, halophenols, including PCP, chlordane, and chlorpyrifos, had comparatively high detection rates and high average concentrations in the wood chips produced in 2001–2002. Aldrin and endrin ...

  • Physical properties of wood pellets from a novel pelletising process

    In this paper a novel pelletising process is described utilising one-axial compression. Compression tests of saw dust samples were conducted at different applied forces, moisture contents, process temperatures and hold up times using a compression cell powered by an Instron testing machine. Additionally the effect of heating in saturated and unsaturated atmosphere was studied. The densities of ...

  • The conversion of acetol during the concentration process from wood vinegar

    Acetol, as one of the components of biomass pyrolysis liquid, is a high value-added compound for medicine synthesis. If acetol can be extracted from the renewable pyrolysis liquid, much environmental and economic benefit may be obtained; but the instability of acetol makes its concentration difficult. To clarify what compounds are formed from acetol during the distillation process, the components ...

  • Wood waste product

    A landfill needed a way to reduce their waste stream volume, increase the life of their landfill, and recover a recyclable, marketable product. Wood and yard waste material comprise up to 20% of their entire waste stream volume. Processing and recycling this material will extend the life of the landfill by 20 years. They chose WSM's Model 4864BH Horizontal Hogging System with a customized feed ...

  • Waste Wood Case History

    The Customer The Company is a leader in the development and implementation of state of the art timber gasification. The Process The Company uses a gasification process that breaks down different types of waste wood such as wood chips, pallets, sawdust and other non-virgin wood and converts it into a clean producer gas. The producer gas fuels the turbine ...

  • Wood waste recycling

    A customer has built a very successful business grinding wood waste banned from the local landfill and selling the wood fiber. They operate a system that was fully engineered and manufactured by WSM, including conveyors, magnetics, WSM 48-10 Disc Screen, WSM 4064BH Horizontal Hogging system, and support structures. A heavy duty vibrating conveyor feeds the wood waste into the hog. Ground material ...

  • Electric Wood Hammer Mill

    Why Need an Electric Wood Hammer Mill? As we all know, wood pellet machine is the key part for making sawdust into bio-pellets. While not all materials are suitable for pelletizing directly, for some materials with diameter larger than 5mm, you need to grind them into ...


  • Wood briquettes packed full of energy

    Konolt manages its energy output using RUF briquetting machinery Timber processors Konold are improving their energy balance with the help of their RUF briquetting machine. Wood waste is being pressed into briquettes to create a uniform combustible material. The heat they produce is then used for process heating and to heat their premises, with the residual heat being used to generate ...

  • Awareness of Fungi on Wood is Critical to Professionals

    Untitled Document Those who deal with indoor fungal contamination could benefit by understanding more about the biology of common types of fungi on wood and wood products. It may assist in identifying potential ...

  • Wood Recycling Firms Shift Markets

    In 1995, Apollo Wood & Metal was one of the many wood processors in southern California struggling to survive the downturn in the cogeneration business. Today, Apollo, located in Fontana (about 40 miles east of Los Angeles), is an entirely different company. It has a new name, Apollo Wood Recovery, and a different market: medium density fiberboard (MDF). In fact, the only thing that hasn’t ...

  • Exergetic performance assessment of gasification and pyrolysis processes of pre-treated wood board wastes

    This paper investigates exergetic performance of gasification and pyrolysis processes and compares their exergy efficiencies, using the experimental data on a two-step process of thermo-chemical conversion of Wood Board (WB) wastes. The exergy values of biomass samples change from 17.49 MJ/kg to 24.57 MJ/kg, respectively. Hydrogen produced from pyrolysis step of gasification varies between 17 ...

  • Wood pellet research program and summary results

    BBRG’s vision is to create a comprehensive design package for pelleting technology, said Shahab Sokhansanj. “It will contain engineering data and procedures for procuring biomass, [and for] producing and delivering pellets as a choice feedstock to the emerging bioindustry.” He said he would debate the statement made earlier that morning that biomass is not a mature technology: “We need to improve ...

  • Turning wood chips and sawdust into a valuable solid fuel

    RUF briquetting units are the economical solution for the processing of wood chips and sawdust. Where timber is planed, turned and sanded, manufacturers end up with large quantities of wood chips and sawdust. By briquetting this material, you can recover a valuable solid fuel. Where large quantities are produced, the single briquette pressing system developed by RUF GmbH is the most economical ...
