Determining the resin and glue content on the fiber or chip, adjusting the addition of resin/glue during the process and improving production.
Determines the resin/glue amount on fibres or chips, optimizes particle board and OSB, especially when using recycling wood
APOS ResinReducer® continuously determines the glue amount on fibres or chips. With this, it is possible to adapt the addition of glue during the process, improve the production and save glue.
The continuous monitoring prevents under- or overdosing of glue, saves costs and optimises the mechanical and chemical properties of the finished board.
Besides monitoring the current glue amount on the glued fibres or chips, also nitrogen amounts before gluing (e.g. due to urea addition or usage of recycling wood) can be taken into account by a second sensor placed ahead of the gluing station.
Product specific material formulas and used resin types can be entered and the desired resin amount can be adjusted on this base.
The user enters the desired product, and the systems shows the guideline values and the current resin amount. The values can be processed to serve an automated or manual adaption.
All APOS systems are multiparameter capable.
