International project tightens the limits of pump drying
Alent Dynamic has received a large order of drying control equipment from Stenvalls Trä AB to their sawmill in Piteå, Lövholmen.
Lövholmen sawmill installed some control systems from Alent Dynamic in conjunction with the Swedish National Testing Authority (SP) Tests 2015. The control system was evaluated against another Swedish control system. The management of Stenvalls Trä has now decided to install Alent Dynamics control system in another 12 kilns in Lövholmen, Piteå.
- It turns out that Alent's patented method of oscillating drying (Pumpdrying) gives a good quality of dried wood while at the same time large amounts of electricity and, to some extent, heat energy can be saved, says Erik Sjölund, CEO of Stenvalls Trä AB. Alent's control system is already dominant in our other sawmills in Sikfors and Örarna.
Stenvalls Trä AB is one of Sweden's largest sawmill groups with three sawmills and a high degree of processing. The Group has wood processing facilities in Norrbotten, construction stores from Umeå to Kiruna, flight operations and IT companies.
- We are very pleased with this order that comes after a careful evaluation of various control systems by a highly qualified sawmill group, says Staffan Ruuth, CEO of Alent Dynamic.
Jutos Timber AB has recently ordered Alent Dynamic's control system for its modern sawmill in Teurajärvi.
Alent Dynamic's control system is a method of drying wood that provides better quality and saves a lot of energy. It is at the same time the result of a unique collaboration in fields with several Swedish and foreign sawmills and researchers at Luleå University of Technology. Seventy thousand batches have already been completed and the sawmills have saved 200 million kilowatt hours of electricity while the method has been refined. Never before have so many participated and so much data been studied in the development of a drying method. Now, Alent has an international volume product that optimizes and measures while drying goes fully automatic to target moisture content.
