Lab & process analysis of wood based panels & composite boards

Wood based panels and composite boards

With a 35+ year history of near-infrared analysis, Perten Instruments is excited to bring our experience and technology to composite board and wood based panel manufacturers.

Rapid and accurate analysis of wood based products is essential to optimizing profit, quality control, and avoiding costly fines.

Our 3rd generation diode array based NIR instruments provide the speed, accuracy, versatility, and robustness required in wood applications. Our instruments provide simultaneous, multi-component analysis – moisture, resin load, and more – in seconds. The speed enables true on-line monitoring - even for fast moving materials. The full range spectrum allows us to use advanced calibration techniques. It's possible to calibrate for complex parameters and to provide stable, accurate moisture measurements over time with no need to reset/adjust the moisture meter periodically. With lab, at-line, and process instrument available, we can meet your analysis requirements.

Example applications include:

  • Particleboard – Resin load, Board Moisture, Chip Moisture
  • MDF – Board moisture, Fiber moisture, Resin load
  • Resins – Molar ratio, Dry matter, Melamine content
