GreCon CHIPINSPECTOR

Contamination-free Wood Chips by Automatic Separation of Foreign Objects of all Sorts

The GreCon CHIPINSPECTOR separates foreign objects so that high panel quality and significant savings of material and production costs can be achieved. The existing measuring systems available have not been capable of detecting such a broad spectrum of foreign objects.

  • Reliable detection of foreign objects using dual-energy X-ray method
  • Even material distribution by vibrating conveyor
  • Diversion of foreign objects via precision flaps to minimize the reject of good material

Benefits at a glance

  • Improved quality
  • Satisfied customers through excellent panel quality
  • Fewer complaints
  • Improved product quality
  • Reduction of material costs
  • Fewer rejects
  • High material load of up to 60.62 US ton/hr [55 Metric t/h] atro
  • Reduction of production costs
  • Less maintenance due to less strain of downstream equipment
  • Longer life of grinding discs

Measuring method

Using a dual-energy method, 99 % of all foreign objects can be detected in the material supply and diverted before they reach downstream processes. Because of the material-specific absorption behaviour of different materials, materials of the same weight per unit area, such as wood and rubber, can now be reliably distinguished with this technology.
Contamination of the material flow can be identified regardless of the surface structure or moisture content of the raw material. Foreign objects are even identified in thick material layers of up to 1.96 in [50 mm]. They will be reliably detected even if they are covered by chips. The reliable identification and diversion of rubber parts before defibration significantly reduces the risk of contamination of the panels by rubber parts on the surface.

Detection of Diverse Materials

  • Rubber down to a size of 0.061 in³ [1 cm³], for some rubber types a minimum edge length of 0.23 in [6 mm] is possible
  • Stones with a base area of 0.038 in² [25 mm²]
  • Glass pieces (3 mm thickness) with a base area of 0.038 in² [25 mm²]
  • Metal parts with a base area of 0.015 in² [10 mm²]
  • Clumps

Software Functions

  • The visualisation software of all GreCon measuring systems is based on Windows. 

  • For the data transmission to higher-ranking process control  systems, different network connections, such as OPC or ODBC, are available. Profibus and Profinet are available on request.

  • The database stores the data and provides a function to export it to other file formats for further processing and evaluation.  A  uniform  data  structure provides easily accessible data for process control systems. For statistical purposes, individual reports can  be  generated  from  the  database.  Available reporting  types  are time-related  reports,  such as shift or monthly reports, and order-related reports that can be selected according to requirements.

Applications

  • MDF
  • HDF
  • Processing of waste wood
