Novopan del Ecuador, the leading producer of medium density particleboard (MDP) in Ecuador, will increase its production capacity in Quito with a new plant from Dieffenbacher, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The scope of supply includes a forming station with conveyor system that begins at the glue blenders, a forming line with prepress, an 8 ft wide by 20.5 meters-long CPS+ press system, a raw board handling system and a stack and transfer system.
Dieffenbacher subsidiary Maier will contribute its wood yard and chipping technology. Novopan has ordered the storage cross chain and rectifying conveyor for feeding of logs as well as a chain bed conveyor for loading slab bundles, which is followed by a special cleaning section.
Maier will also deliver a vibration dosing table to be loaded with short-piece wood assortments; a drum chipper feeding belt conveyor with metal detector; and waste belt conveyors. The key machine for the new chipping line is a Maier Drum Chipper HRL 1600 with a clamping plate rotor. Three MRZ 1400 knife ring flakers with FlowOptimizer complete Maier´s scope of supply for the wood chip and wet flake preparation.
