Buffer to green sorting, 2014
The customer: Moelven Våler is Norway’s largest sawmill and produces a number of products for industrial customers. Its speciality is raw materials for the production of laminated timber products. The sawmill produces 175,000 m3 of spruce and pine annually and had a turnover of 39 million Euro in 2014.
The project: The Våler buffer solution between saw and green sorting line must be upgraded in order to reduce the number of stoppages from green sorting to the saw.
- Buffer elevator
- Buffer with conveyor
- Single feeder
Result: Renholmen’s patented buffer elevator together with a larger buffer capacity and a more efficient single feeder has resulted in considerably fewer saw stoppages caused by sorting. The solution with a connectible buffer has begun to be more or less standard for all new deliveries and is being incorporated gradually in many places.
