Good debarking quality is of crucial significance if industrial timber is to be processed further to paper, pulp or wood-wool products. Valon Kone (VK) is an internationally operating company that specialises in the development and production of rotor debarkers. By using tried and tested VK equipment, WERTHOLZ customers are assured optimum debarking quality.
At our production location in Fürnitz, a VK5000 debarker with pneumatic tool pressure is employed for debarking spruce and fir pulpwood with lengths between 2 and 5 metres. The special air-seal technology enables the tool pressure to be adjusted during debarking. The system makes it easier to maintain good debarking quality during operation and reduces the strain on the ends of the logs, which minimises wood damage in this area.
