FMW Wood Chip Storage Solution – Round Silo Discharge System


Maximize Efficiency and Reliability with FMW’s Round-Silo Discharge System

The pulp and paper industry is constantly evolving, with new technologies and processes being developed to enhance efficiency and productivity. However, one aspect of the industry that often goes overlooked is the storage and handling of wood chips. Inefficient wood chip storage systems can lead to inconsistent chip flow, blockages, and ultimately, reduced production efficiency. This is where the Round-Silo Discharge System from FMW comes in – a reliable solution for precise material handling and controlled chip discharge.

Efficient and reliable wood chip handling is crucial for maintaining smooth operations. Inconsistent material flow and blockages in storage systems can lead to downtime, inefficiencies, and higher operating costs.

FMW’s Round-Silo Discharge System is a proven solution, designed to address these challenges. It ensures a consistent flow of wood chips, preventing blockages and ensuring uniform chip distribution. The system is perfect for clients that demand precise material handling and controlled chip discharge.

Discover more about significant higher yields with the FMW chip screening system.

The quality of the raw materials used directly impacts the final product quality. Wood chips, the primary raw material, need to be uniform in size and free from impurities to ensure a smooth and efficient production process. FMW Industries’ screening solutions provides a technology that effectively separates oversized chips and fines, leaving only high-quality material for further processing.
