Akij, Bangladesh, successfully started up a mat pre-heater, PressBooster G3, for their partice board line

Akij Particle Board Mill Ltd. in Bangladesh started up a Press Booster for their Siempelkamp line in October 2021. The start-up was successful, and a significant production increase was achieved already from the beginning.

“After the commissioning and test run of the Press Booster, the production increased as expected which made us very satisfied. We have achieved two milestones already in the first week after running the PressBooster. Sunds Fibertech and Akij have worked very well together to achieve good results, says Mr. Sk. Bashir Uddin, Managing Director.”

Lars Eklund, CEO of Sunds Fibertech, participated in the Akij startup

“I am happy to see that the Press Booster was accepted already during the start-up, and all guarantees met. I would like to thank the competent Akij team for very good cooperation through the whole project, says Lars Eklund, CEO of Sunds Fibertech”.

Sunds Fibertech and Akij will continue their cooperation for improved production in Akijs Particleboard and MDF lines.

Sunds Fibertech is launching the next generation of steam recovery system for MDF lines, EVOfuge CS

Sunds is the market leader for steam recovery systems for MDF lines with more than 30 units sold. The new generation EVOfuge CS will be unique by having the highest separation efficiency on the market. The name CS stands for Clean Steam. The benefit of the high separation efficiency is that risk of build-ups in the recycled steam outlet is avoided.  The patented EVOfuge CS is unique on the market with no moving parts using centrifugal force for separation. The patented design using only its shape and steam velocity to generate the centrifugal forces. For this reason, no additional power and auxiliaries are needed making the EVOfuge very easy to install. The easiness of installation enables the EVOfuge CS to have the lowest investment and operational cost on the market. 

The improved separation is achieved by a new inside geometry and a new type of recycled steam outlet. The development work is an outcome of CFD simulations and experience from existing installations.

Reasons to install an EVOfuge CS:
• 30% steam recovery, typically 1–5 ton steam depending on production capacity.
• More than 30% VOC reduction.
• Fuel savings. 4 000 ton less bark is needed to the energy plant annual per ton steam recovered.
• CO2 reduction. 2 500 ton less CO2 annual per ton steam recovered.
• Recovery of steam to remove bottlenecks in the energy plant.
