Within the forestry industry, the wood based panel industry is of utmost significance. It is only thanks to the mechanical transformation of the grown wood into wood based panels with defined properties that the requirements of modern wooden and furniture constructions can be optimally complied with.
However, the production processes, such as the processing of the wood into chips, fibres or veneer as well as the drying and pressing of the combustible materials to structural elements, hold various risks of fire. Sparks, glowing embers or particles, generated in different plant areas, can easily cause serious fire and explosions.
A GreCon spark extinguishing system significantly increases the safety and protection of the production facilities. It detects sparks in time and automatically extinguishes them – and has done so successfully for more than 40 years.
