The Effect of Log Diameter and Milling Equipment on Sawmill Residues
Abstract:This article presents the results of a survey made in East Texas to determine, the amount, kind, character and location of residues accumulated at sawmills. The investigation was designed to estimate the relative amounts of sawmill residues ascribable to differences among mills with respect to kinds and combinations of equipment, and to estimate the differential effect of log size in the residues within each kind of mill. The study demonstrates that accurate estimates can be obtained through the proper application of statistical methods.
