FIBERVIEW - Taking Samples from the Mat Belongs to the Past
GreCon FIBERVIEW allows an economical and objective assessment of the fibre quality in the running process. The measured values supplied by FIBERVIEW enable the operator of the refiner to produce a consistent fibre quality.
Using the patent pending FIBERVIEW, the cooking and refining processes can be precisely adjusted and the consumption of energy and the fibre quality thus be optimised. A saving potential of up to 10 kW/h per ton of wood that is refined can be calculated.
Being able to manipulate the fibre sizes in a determined and reliable way, the manufacturers of MDF panels are now able to produce specific fibre qualities. Internal standards can be established. Even customer requirements can be specified in such a way that an allowed number of shives per class per m² can be determined. Especially in the case of complaints, concrete data is available whether the fibre quality was sufficient or not. Such a degree of objectiveness has been unparalleled so far.
The next step is the regulation of the refiner via an automatic control loop. Thus, reaction times are reduced, and further cost saving potentials can be realised thanks to faster adjustment.
FIBERVIEW is based on an imaging method. The surface of the passing fibre mat is continuously inspected by a line-scan camera with vertical illumination over a width of about 400 mm.
