Dieffenbacher delivers LVL press to Roseburg

28/09/2017 - 02:08 PM

The U.S. company Roseburg Forest Products operates a Dieffenbacher particleboard plant in Simsboro, Louisiana, that has been running for the past 15 years. Roseburg has now contracted with Dieffenbacher to supply the microwave preheating system, continuous press and stacking system for its new LVL plant in Chester, South Carolina.

With a daily output of 800 m³, the more-than-65-m long CPS will be the world's largest continuous LVL press as measured by production capacity. The upstream 600 kW microwave will be the most powerful preheating system of this type in LVL production.

"We obviously knew of Dieffenbacher's previous LVL projects. These excellent references are among the reasons that we ultimately chose Dieffenbacher as our supplier," said Roseburg President and CEO Grady Mulbery. He added, "The short distance between Chester and Dieffenbacher's service center in Alpharetta, Georgia, is another plus for us."

Roseburg has earmarked a total investment of USD 200 million for its new LVL production line. Construction starts in the first quarter of 2018. Production of the first board is planned for 2019.
