ECOFORMER SLBack to list
Description: "EcoFormer SL" represents an evolution of CMC TEXPAN's traditional and well proven wind forming concept for spreading Surface Layer mats for particleboard production.
The system is aimed at optimizing the separation of finer and coarser flakes (resulting in better crosswise distribution of mat weight) by making the air flow inside the wind forming chamber more efficient.
To optimize the configuration of the unit, the air flow path inside the machine has been analyzed by means of a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation.
The core of the system is represented by a diffuser plate with holes of a special shape, receiving the air flow blown by axial fans through a plenum chamber and providing for a perfect canalization and distribution of the air flow among the single blowers.
This unit is also perfectly suitable in case of revamping applications, since it keeps the same overall dimensions of a standard wind forming chamber.
Its main advantages are:
- better cross weight distribution;
- maintenance friendliness;
- energy saving , thanks to a reduction of pressure loss.
