We are constantly working on the further development of our technology with the aim of significantly improving the environmental balance of our plants while maintaining high productivity. For the benefit of our common environment.
Control software gets a modern user interface
The Mahild control software can be implemented with the following user interfaces: WINCC, Wonderware/AVEVA, Intouch, Citect, RSView.
The new MM4100 control system with CLIMATE MULTI-MEASURING is used for the first time in Europe.
With the latest version of the Mahild computer control system with industrial hardware and software, it is possible for the first time to carry out programme adjustments remotely.
Energy management according to the latest standards. The available thermal energy is used as required -- where the productivity of the kiln requires it and where the quality of the material to be dried dictates it. The results are uniform boiler loads, increased boiler efficiency and reduced emissions and downtimes.
From now on, Mahild lumber drying kilns are controlled by our own computer control system and can be individually adapted to the customer's needs.
From now on, wood moisture readings can be wirelessly transmitted to the control system.
The PROZONE wood moisture measuring device was successfully used in the CONTRAFLOW kiln for the first time.
Adapted to each customer, each kiln and each Species, the Multi-Hum estimates the moiture content during the entire drying process. Using research performed by our own wood technologies engineering team, we were able to develop a formula that uses the current conditions in the kiln to determine a very accurate moisture measurement, eliminating the need for wired probes or any other type of direct measuring of moisture.
New weight based wood moisture measurement system is introduced. High-precision scales inside the drying chamber weight single board samples, wood stacks or complete chamber batches to measure the wood moisture.
Zonal wood moisture measuring system is introduced. The average moisture content of several cubic metres of wood can be determined per zone.
Market launch of the trend-setting control system MM 8500, equipped with:
Introduction of a new method for the determination of the wood moisture content by means of weight measurements of the entire dryer batch.
A uniform colouring of the wood can only be achieved in a completely saturated steam atmosphere. The OXI-VENT system ensures perfect conditions in the steaming chamber, so that uniform wood colouring is achieved and steaming times are significantly reduced.
Special new materials and construction improvements decisively absorb the fan noise. Noise emissions are reduced while energy consumption is minimized.
During lumber drying, natural shrinkage often causes deformation, especially of the upper layers of boards. These deformations can be prevented or limited by the application of weights.
The Mahild TOP-PRESS system takes over this task reliably, safely and automatically. One push of a button is enough and the wood stacks in the dryer are loaded with a continuously adjustable load. A constantly high pressing pressure - or one that is automatically adjusted to the drying process - ensures dimensionally stable board material even in the upper layers of the stacks.
The ECO-THERM system allows the use of inexpensive low-temperature exhaust heat from power plants even in Mahild high-speed drying kilns.
