Steam Boiler for Plywood Industry | Why is boiler needed in Plywood Industry

 Why is boiler needed in Plywood Industry:

The boiler is required in Plywood industry to dry the moisture content in the wood. After the removal of moisture, ply becomes strong and long-lasting. For removal of moisture, drying operations are carried out. Moisture content may be different in various kind of plys so the time taken to dry the moisture may vary. The time required for removal of moisture would depend upon the thickness and density of wood.

Various Methods are used to dry the plywood. One of the most commonly used methods is steam contact methods. In this method steam obtained from the boiler is directly used to dry the plywood.

The other method used is by the heat from the Thermic Fluid HeatersThermic Fluid Heaters are heating equipment, used in industry where heat transfers are primary need of process instead of pressure.

Drying is carried out in the plywood industry mainly for two major products, one Plyboards and second peeled wood sheets like veneer. Depending on the thickness boards take more time to dry in comparison to veneer sheet.

The boiler is used in various processes in wood processing industries:

  • Disinfect: To cleanse of infections and destroy Deemak
  • Extraction: Extraction in chemistry is a separation process consisting of the separation of a substance from a matrix.
  • Drying: By removal of moisture wood would become strong, stable and long-lasting.
  • Curing: Curing Also involve drying by addition of certain salts for toughening and hardening of Planks
  • Sterilizing: Refers to the elimination of fungus, bacteria, spores by the method of dry heating.
  • Packaging: For making packaging material so that plywood can reach the market securely
  • Wood Preservation: wood will have become strong and long-lasting. 
  • Anti flaming: fire retardant treatment for wood and timber is done to make its lifespan long
  • Mothproof: Chemical treatment so as to repel wood moth that can spoil the wood.
  • Coking: To convert wood into coke which is used as fuel.
  • Degrease:  To remove grease or oil from the surface to give a matt finish.
