Columbia Forest Products in Hearst Ontario Canada invests in the latest veneer drying technology by Raute

This R7 series veneer dryer will be the most robust dryer Raute has supplied as it will include more high-quality stainless steel and thicker mild steel than ever before. To achieve optimal drying, Raute will be providing enhanced dryer controls - a make-up air system and sealant cells for superior dryer production, balance, and control while ensuring ‘next to zero’ fugitive emissions into the production plant.

This dryer will be delivered early in 2022.
