Thanks to their three-layer construction out of oriented long chips, OSB panels (oriented strand board) stand out due to their good mechanical properties. Especially in wooden constructions, OSB panels are nowadays essential as supporting and reinforcing structural elements. However, the production processes, such as the production of the strands as well as the drying and pressing of the combustible materials to OSB panels, 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 detection and extinguishment 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.
