Sawmills and wood processing

Sawmills and timber industries place great demands on equipment used. After long experience, we know what is required in the various applications of the industry.

BEVI offers both service of existing equipment as well as new sales to both sawmills and producers of equipment such as wood dryers and sawmills.

For example, an uneven and bumpy load in graders and planer feeders demands a robust solution for electric motors, transmissions and other drive equipment.

In lumber kilns, the main challenge is the very high ambient temperature and high humidity. After long time cooperation with sawmills in the Swedish regions of Småland and Norrland, we have developed a specially adapted electric motors with high efficiency. The motor is designed and produced to meet the tough demands placed on these applications with very high ambient temperatures and high humidity as well as strong radial and axial forces on the motor shaft.

”During fifteen years we have installed electric motors from BEVI in our lumber kilns. This has led to an increased availability in our production while costs for energy, maintenance and spare parts have decreased significantly.”

Magnus Öhman Purchasing manager, SCA Timber, Sweden

”Since the sawmill was built in 1999, we have cooperated with BEVI for replacement and service of electric motors for our lumber kilns. BEVI's knowledge of our needs, motors and lumber kilns has resulted in shorter downtime and has saved us both money and energy.”

Christer Boklund Maintenance manager electricity, Södra Timber, Mönsterås, Sweden
