FORESTRY

X-ray-based inspection plays a significant role in forestry, as it is used for quality assurance, process control, and sorting.

APPLICATIONS:
  • Sorting and classification of logs
  • Measurement of moisture in biofuel
  • Identification of unwanted objects in biofuel
  • Density measurements of particle boards during production


SORTING
To analyze the inner part of a log, it must pass through an X-ray scanner. After scanning, the system processes the X-ray images and creates a file containing complex information, which is then used in the sorting process.

This type of X-ray log scanner is particularly suitable for the sorting of pinewood and spruce. It is an invaluable tool for a logging company since it ensures correct sorting and classification in a fully automated environment, with minimal manual work.

SYSTEMS SUITED FOR FORESTRY
COMET X-ray inserts and tubes are well-suited for sorting applications - either as a part of the iXRS modules or as systems like the PXS EVO series. The key is the right combination and configuration.
