Smart solutions for the sawmill industry

The demand for wood is accelerating. Every piece of wood counts in the race for sustainable and climate-friendly materials and solutions.

For sawmills, high uptime, high efficiency, and reduced wood waste are more important than ever.

Water mist holds the key to optimized productivity throughout the process - from sawblade lubrication and dust suppression to lumber drying.

For decades, Danfoss has supported the sawmill industry with high-pressure water mist solutions. At present, our cost-effective NWC power packs run in hundreds of sawmills across the globe.

We continue to offer smart solutions that secure full utilization of the valuable forest resources and maximize profitability of the sawmill operations.

Sawmill doubles capacity

By adding a few components and using the existing Danfoss pump, the overall kiln capacity was doubled.

Power pack for wood applications

Danfoss NWC all-in-one power pack for the sawmill industry

The NWC is a proven power-pack optimized for the sawmill industry. The compact, all-in-one unit provides a constant flow of high-pressure water.

The positive displacement pump at the heart of the unit offers simple control of the water flow via the power-pack valve. The self-contained power-pack with few components provides high reliability and low service needs. The pump is lubricated by water only to avoid oil contamination.

NWC comes with an integrated tank for buffer supplies. Get more information about the NWC by contacting your local sales manager:
