Cut your cost! - ContiBooster offers 10% more capacity

Right on time for LIGNA 2015, Siempelkamp is offering its customers a new, simple and cost-effective version of the mat steam preheater concept: the ContiBooster. It has been proven in the production of particle board in different thicknesses that the plant capacity can be increased by up to 10%.

The ContiBooster heats up to 40% of the mat before the press

In order to achieve this effect, the Siempelkamp specialists have replaced the intermediate belt in the press infeed section with a steam-permeable wire-mesh belt. An additional upper belt including cleaning system and belt preheater above the mat, which is up to 350 mm thick, ensures the supply of steam and heat from both sides in the new system along with secure and reliable operation.

Steam boxes attached above and below the wire-mesh belt use overpressure to inject up to 500 kg/h of saturated steam into each mat surface layer and thereby heat up to 40% of the mat. The steam boxes can also be pulled out to the side for easy maintenance. Installation into existing systems only takes a few days so results can be achieved quickly. Siempelkamp can also supply the steam generator for the ContiBooster.
