Lumber and Wood Products

Bulk materials are created in the process of making lumber and various wood products. Saw dust, wood chips and wood shavings that are by-products of one process are used for making particleboard, flakeboard and oriented strandboard in another process. Also, sawdust is formed into pellets and used as an alternative fuel source in many industries. KWS supplies equipment for storing, elevating, conveying and metering these bulk materials. Process efficiency is critical to the success of the industry. Our mass-flow hopper and feeder designs are very successful in storing and metering bulk materials that arch or bridge. Also, our conveyors are dust-tight to prevent a hazardous condition such as a fire or an explosion.
