Silo discharge & conveying technology

A low carbon material for construction and furniture production.

Particle Board – Utilisation of low value wood for building the future

Particle Board, also known as low / medium density fibreboard and chipboard, is an engineered wood product manufactured from wood chips, sawmill shavings, sawdust and with proper processing, waste wood.

Particle board benefits from the utilisation of low value wood products which locks away carbon for the lifetime of the product.

Saxlund has developed an extensive technology portfolio for the conveying, storage and silo discharge of wood bulk materials. Whether for mature wood, wood shavings, wood chips, or bark, our plants are based on your individual performance needs.

For the wood products industry Saxlund’s technology provides robust design with high availability.
