BUDGET DATA AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION FOR A

EltoBoard Plant

This fully automated EltoBoard (/WWCB) Plant can produce various board types:

  • High density Wood Strand Cement Board / EltoBoard

In addition the following (low density) WWCB Products can be produced on this line as well:

  • Standard Wood Wool Cement Boards (WWCB);
  • Acoustic WWCB (decorative and sound absorbing ceiling boards);

and optionally:

  • Composite WWCB (sandwich boards with a core sheet of Polystyrene, PU-foam, Rockwool or other insulating material);
  • Reinforced WWCB (roofing boards);

This advanced EltoBoard (WWCB) Plant is quite similar to our WWCB Plant, however also allows the production of high-density EltoBoard, by having an EltoBoard Press be added to the Plant.

Such fully automated EltoBoard/WWCB Plant is standard provided with a full Finishing Line, which consists of an Automatic Board Dryer, Thickness Calibrator and a Trimming & Profiling Saw. Optionally a Painting Line can be added to the line.

Board dimensions:

The following board dimensions apply:

Length:
2400 / 2440 mm (8'), when so required up to 3050 mm (10')
Width:
600 / 610 mm (2')
Thickness:
8 - 25 mm for EltoBoard
(15 - 100 mm for WWCB)

Board densities:

The density of EltoBoard (dry) is approx. 1100 kg/m³.

The max. density of WWCB (dry) ranges, in accordance with European Norm EN 13168 (formerly DIN 1101), from approx. 360 up to 570 kg/m³. Other densities may apply, subject to Client's requirements and applications.

Raw material consumption:

The raw material Wood for EltoBoard and WWCB production consists of small-diameter soft wood, such as Pine, Spruce or Poplar. For example wood from forest thinnings is suitable. Cement is common OPC (Portland Cement, such as CEM I 52,5 R). In addition Water and a Salt Solution such as Sodium Silicate ("Waterglass") is used.

Raw material consumption, based on 1-shift production for boards of 2400 x 600 mm, 50 mm thickness is approx. as follows:

Wood wool:
20 ton
Cement:
34 ton
Water:
22 m³
Salt solution:
1,4 ton

Labor requirements:

The following labor requirements apply, including labor for maintenance, warehousing, cleaning, etc.
Plant management is to the discretion of Client.

Number of personnel per shift:
22-26

Power consumption:

Based on a full production capacity, the total installed electrical power and electrical power consumption (incl. dust extraction, compressor, etc.) are approx.:

Installed Electrical Power:
approx. 1700 kVA
Electrical Power Consumption:
approx. 1300 kW

The Board Dryer is gas (or steam) heated. Alternatively, the dryer may be heated by means of waste wood from the plant operation (such as the dust extraction system and bark).

Building and land requirements:

The size of the building for a Fully Automated EltoBoard/WWCB Plant is approx. 10.000 m² (180 x 56 m), with an overall clear height of min. 5-6 meters (partly 7 meter clearance above selective equipment).

This floor space includes for intermediate storage space for curing of the boards, as well as the board trimming operation. Additional storage space may be required for finished products, subject to local conditions.
The minimum land area required, including log yard, is approx. 4-5 HA

Budget Pricing:

The budget pricing for the Eltomation Equipment for this EltoBoard/WWCB Plant is approx. as follows:

Main production line (subject to scope of supply): EUR 10.000.000,-- to EUR 11.000.000,--

This budget prices includes engineering, project management, an estimate for CIF/CIP shipping costs as well as Installation Supervision and Commissioning charges. A detailed list of the items supplied by Eltomation is provided in our detailed System Proposal, which will be provided upon request.

Local supplied items (such as fork lift trucks, cement silo's, waste/dust recovery system, etc.) are not included in the Eltomation Price. It will be possible to have additional selective parts of the plant equipment be sourced or manufactured locally per our specifications, which will reduce the above mentioned price for the equipment and shipping charges. These items could include certain conveyors, steel structures, etc. We are open for such discussion.
