Abstract
To support the implementation of biomass procurement practices, a formal, rigorous, consistent, science-based biomass quality control (QC) program is needed. This program should be designed to determine customer needs, the sources of product variation, and ways of eliminating or minimizing product variation as soon as it occurs. The program should also include a well-designed QC plan and sampling protocol, statistical process control methodologies and tools, formal QC teams, and regular training. This report describes various statistical QC tools and demonstrates those using examples of biomass moisture content data. These tools can be developed in-house or be purchased, but their integration with existing databases (e.g., LIMS) is recommended. FPInnovations experts can assist in developing customized QC programs for companies and for specific biomass products, and can train QC teams to develop and use the tools presented here.

Abstract
This guide proposes a method to evaluate the performance of optimized log and cant breakdown equipment as a tool for mill personnel to improve production efficiency. Optimized systems are found in all aspects of modern sawmills, and evaluating their ability to maximize product value is not necessarily a simple task.. Analytical methods presented in this guide are primarily intended for sawmill technical staff, i.e. technicians and engineers responsible for process improvement. With this guide and a better understanding of optimizers’ operating mode, they will be in position to implement a control method based on the efficiency of the log breakdown equipment To be successful, a performance evaluation test needs to be properly planned. Once objectives have been clearly defined, a methodology must be laid out for the results to be significant and conclusive. Forintek specialists are available at all times to help a company set up a project of this nature.

Abstract
Thin circular saws can suffer from a vibration phenomena called critical speed instability. At the critical speed, a resonant condition occurs where a saw can snake slowly from side-to-side producing unacceptably large sawing variation. To avoid this problem, most circular saws operate at 10 to 15 percent below the first critical speed. Unfortunately, this practice limits reductions in saw plate thickness and corresponding improvements in lumber recovery. Recently, several mills have been able to operate guided splined-arbor saws above critical speed. These supercritical speed saws offer significant sawing performance improvements by allowing both high recovery and high production rates. The use of these saws remains rare, however, and very little knowledge is available to guide mills that want to investigate this promising area. This report describes laboratory tests involving two supercritical speed saw configurations which are operating successfully in industry. Detailed descriptions of these configurations are given and guidelines for use are described. Idling and cutting tests were completed to characterize vibrational behaviour and demonstrate sawing performance levels. Tests were done to investigate the effect of changes in saw tensioning, saw tooth design parameters, saw and feed speeds and saw plate thicknesses. Test results confirm that for the sawing configurations tested, operating speeds can be found in the supercritical speed region where stable idling behaviour allows successful sawing. As with conventional saws, sawing accuracy is best at lower feed speeds. However, by operating at supercritical speeds, acceptable sawing accuracy can be achieved at higher feed speeds than are possible using conventional saws. Saw tensioning allows further increases in saw and feed speeds, but is not essential for supercritical speed operation. Changes in saw thickness strongly affect sawing performance levels and lumber recovery. Thinner saws have higher sawing variation and must operate at lower feed speeds than thicker saws. Curves showing the relationship between saw plate thickness, feed speeds and sawing accuracy are presented which can be used to assess the economic benefits of the supercritical speed saws that were tested. Supercritical speed circular saws offer considerable potential to improve sawing performance and increase lumber recovery. These saws allow reductions in saw kerf widths while maintaining high feed speeds and acceptable sawing accuracy.
