Engineered Wood Products
Oriented Strand Board (OSB)
OSB is a wood-based product commonly used to replace plywood in structural board applications. Before being processed into board, these strands must be dried appropriately. Large strands for the production of OSB are dried in more than 100 custom designed M-E-C Dryers.
PB is an important replacement for plywood and is used to manufacture furniture for non-structural applications. Small wood particles are dried in M-E-C Rotary Drum Dryers before being processed into panels.
Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)
MDF is used in the manufacturing of furniture and is commonly seen on window and door trim. MDF is manufactured from very fine particles of wood fiber, which must be properly dried prior to being pressed into board. M-E-C custom designs and fabricates flash tube dryer systems for this application.
