Wood receiving and conveying

For all climates and species

The challenge

Forest product companies face the challenges of improving the efficiency and productivity of their wood handling operations to reduce operating costs. A key component here is the reliable and efficient transfer of wood during the various processing steps (debarking, chipping, etc.).

The solution

ANDRITZ offers a range of wood receiving and conveying equipment that can be custom-configured to fit the layout and requirements of your wood processing operation. ANDRITZ is a world leader in wood processing equipment. Whether you have short wood, long wood, frozen, or tropical wood – ANDRITZ has a proven solution.

ANDRITZ engineers advanced wood, chip, and bark processing plants for the pulp & paper, panelboard, and power industries. ANDRITZ designs and installs complete infeed systems including

  • PowerFeed infeed conveyors with direct feed to debarkers
  • Receiving decks with chain conveyors suitable for log bundles
  • Slasher decks with capabilities to single out, butt, and cut-to-length
  • Unique stone and sand separator for receiving decks ensures high quality biomass to boilers

Log bundles are fed from trucks or railcars directly into the process with minimal damage to the logs. The log infeed system ensures constant infeed capacity and debarking degree with adjustable speeds.

The patented PowerFeed conveyor is designed for high throughput of tree-length or short logs with great operational efficiency. It dispenses with slashing operations, minimizes waste, and eliminates a throughput bottleneck. Tree-length processing improves fiber quality by eliminating shot ends and cut ends that produce poor quality chips.
