Valon Kone debarkers come standard with new patented FibreMax feedrolls which feature replaceable inserts. The new feedrolls improve efficiency and reliability of the debarker, as well as minimize fiber loss.
Minimal wood loss and better chip quality
FibreMax feedrolls ensure that the log is held in place and that it does not rotate in difficult debarking conditions. Therefore, the risk of splitting the ends of a log is reduced. The new feedrolls do not leave cutting marks on the logs, which improves the quality of the woodchips.
Three insert types
Three insert types for varying debarking conditions are available and different types can be used simultaneously on separate feedrolls of the machine. This can be done to minimize the marks left on the wood by the rolls.
The sharpened teeth is installed as standard in all VK machines. It is intended for debarking in normal conditions.
The flat teeth can be used when the grip of the rolls is not as essential. For example, when debarking soaked wood in plywood mills.
The spiked insert is intended for debarking/reducing in difficult conditions, when the wood is frozen, for example.
Easier maintenance of the feed rolls
The FibreMax is designed for easy upkeep to further enhance its reliability. The bolt-on inserts can be replaced quickly and without any special expertise. Replacing the inserts of a single roll takes not more than an hour.
