APOS N-alyzer® measures the amount of nitrogen and continuously determines and quantifies the proportion of glued material in the accepts stream.
APOS N-alyzer® measures the nitrogen amount and continuously determines and quantifies the share of glued material in the material flow. The material mix can be adjusted in real time during the production process. With a continuous monitoring, the gluing can be optimised as well, an over- or underdosing can be prevented, costs can be saved and products optimised.
Urea and resin both contain nitrogen and the N-alyzer can show this valuable information. Based on the current nitrogen amount of the unglued material, the share of recycling material (material which already contains resin) is captured. The material can be analysed both before and after the dryer, which allows an optimisation of material feeds and recycling shares. The share of glued material influences the emissions from the dryer, so e.g. the addition of urea can be adapted.
Also, recycling material has different material properties compared to fresh wood material, which have an influence on the amount of glue needed. The determination of nitrogen gives information about the share of recycling wood and hence allows for an improved process management.
APOS´ product focus are systems for quality management / bone-dry billing of wood and process applications for the wood industry, both, material and thermal use. All systems are multi parameter capable, i.e. besides determining the Nitrogen amount APOS can determine the water content or other parameters of the material simultaneously.
