OSB strand dryer

OSB panels have become indispensable in the construction and logistics industries. Due to their robustness, they are in high demand worldwide. Their main component, the strands, play an essential role and their rapid but equally homogeneous drying is important for the quality of the end product. Our OSB strand dryers are used worldwide to optimally prepare this special product for processing.

Requirements for OSB strand dryers

As a very specific product in a growing market, the homogeneous and consistent quality of OSB strips is crucial. The subsequent gluing and pressing but also the uniform placement in automated processes works in a delicate balance.

Since there is a high throughput, especially in industrial production, and malfunctions can mean enormous losses, the reliability of each individual system, including the dryer, also plays a major role.

It is not only the initial moisture content of OSB strands that is variable and decisive for the drying process. Each individual wood species can present its pitfalls, especially when resinous pine grades or even a product mix of several wood species are to be dried together. Experience is necessary to always achieve a homogeneous result.
