MDF is short for “Medium Density Fibreboard” and is a wood-based sheet material, made from wood fibres bonded together with a binding agent. MDF has gained a lot of popularity over solid timber, as a cheaper and more versatile alternative in many production types - both for B2B and end-customer use. MDF is mostly made from softwood, but some brands are a mixture of softwood and hardwood.
Normally, the residue of MDF comes in dust or as wooden chips and offcuts. Much of the MDF dust is very fine, and hence difficult to handle. Mostly, the moisture level of the raw material is between 6 and 8 percent. This moisture level is too low for briquetting without pre-treating the dust in an adapted briquetting line. The low level of moisture is also the reason that the dust poses a danger of explosions. A material that dry only needs a small spark to ignite, and that can cause serious harm to both staff and machinery.
At C.F. Nielsen we offer engineering advice to create an adapted solution to handle your MDF waste through a briquetting line.
At C.F. Nielsen, we think that all raw materials should be utilized to their full potential. Therefore, we have made sure that our briquetting presses can handle all sorts of material - also dust from MDF. We deliver single presses or full production lines, depending on your need. We deliver solutions for both medium - and large scale productions, and our specialists will always guide our customers to the right solution for their production.
We offer both standard solutions with presses of various capacities and processing lines, ensuring that moisture is added to the dust before the briquetting process. Yet, we can also deliver customized solutions, in which we will collaborate with other suppliers in creating the best suited solution for your specific production.
At C.F. Nielsen, we are passionate about helping our customers make most of their waste material. We are experts in briquetting solutions, and we are more than willing to help you find the best possible solution for your production, regardless of the raw material, you are working with.
