Bio-Mass Heat & Power

James Jones & Sons Ltd required an innovative solution to provide a more sustainable source of heat to power additional kiln-drying facilities at their sawmill near Lockerbie in Scotland. The site is close to a bio-mass power station and an agreement was reached to obtain a large supply low-grade energy in the form of hot water piped from the condensers at the power station. A new building was required at the site to house the incoming pipes, heat- exchangers, backup boiler, pumps and electronic control-gear. Dignan Technical Services Ltd were engaged to design and build the entire power-house, control system and associated kiln-drying installations.

Credentials

Dignan Technical Services Ltd played an important part in the design and build of a tree bark-processing facility for James Jones & Sons Ltd on a brownfield site close to their Lockerbie Sawmill in Scotland. The new plant handles bark from all the company's sawmills and produces a valuable and environmentally friendly product for resale to growers and landscapers. Machinery and equipment was sourced from a wide range of suppliers and integrated into a single process by specially fabricated conveyors and an advanced custom made process control system. The plant is highly automated and designed to be operated by a minimum number of staff.

Added Value Sawn Treated

Timber Processing

James Jones & Sons Ltd needed to fit an additional incisor process into an established saw-line producing sawn square fence posts. Space to accommodate new machinery was limited and production down-time needed to be minimised on the existing saw-line. Dignan Technical Services Ltd were able to identify and source the new machinery for the extra process and to design and fabricate changes to the exiting conveyor systems to direct the material into and out from the new process. Dignan Technical Services Ltd also designed and installed all the necessary control and safety systems and fabricated all access-ways and machinery guards and screens.

Process Heating Efficiency &

Performance Improvements

Our client in Abedeenshire was suffering high energy costs and poor performance from a large boiler and kiln-drying installation Dignan Technical Services Ltd were able to design and build a new heat distribution system and new control systems to ensure that heat is delivered to the exact place it is needed. Efficiency and productivity of the plant have been improved significantly without consuming more energy.

Boosting Production &

Efficiency

Perthshire Timber Co approached Dignan Technical Services Ltd to provide a new in-feed system to their sawmill and to replace / upgrade a range of equipment and control gear to improve speed and efficiency of their sawmill process. An older saw was replaced with a state- of-the-art Primultini Bandsaw and carriage plus associated infeed machinery designed and fabricated / sourced by Dignan Technical Services Ltd.
