Custom-made chip quality optimization 

Valmet provides custom-made Chip Quality Agreements (ChipQ) depending on customer’s process equipment and requirements. The process starts with wood receiving and covers debarking, chipping, storage, and screening. The primary target of the optimization is even chip quality and minimized wood losses. Valmet will help to achieve optimum quality while providing the tools for optimizing your process and production economy.

Reduces wood losses from screening and debarking

  • Reduces 0-mass production and chemical/energy consumption (lower fines content)
  • Reduced wood consumption
  • Reduces raw material-based downtime in the whole mill
  • Enables more uniform chip thickness and therefore more uniform end product quality – lower variation
