Product description

Particleboard is the wood based panel type which is used the most worldwide. Especially for the contruction of furniture and interior work, the panels, that consist of three to five layers of different chip sizes, have constituted the standard wood based panel type for a long time. However, the production processes, such as the processing of the wood into chips as well as the drying and pressing of the combustible materials to particleboard, hold various risks of fire. Sparks, glowing embers or particles, generated in different plant areas, can easily cause serious fire and explosions. A spark detection and extinguishment system significantly increases the safety and protection of the production facilities. It detects sparks in time and automatically extinguishes them.

Risks of particleboard productions
The main dangerous spots are in the area of chippers, dryers, mills, saws and sanders where the material is processed. Defective machine parts and overheating caused by material densifications can generate ignition sources. Sparks or glowing particles can be created and reach, via extraction and conveying facilities, filters, silos or bins where they can meet explosive wood dust concentrations, which can quickly lead to dust explosions and consequential fire.

The right solution for the particleboard production
To protect production, staff and machines against fire and explosions, GreCon offers a fast, reliable spark extinguishing system which is especially adapted to your production.
