Abstract

A procedure is presented to estimate the relative vapor pressure, equilibrium moisture content, average flake temperature, and average flake moisture content in a flakeboard mat during hot-pressing. This method is based on measurements of temperature and total gas pressure in the mat during hot-pressing. A heat and mass transfer model was adapted from the literature to predict the temperature and moisture content inside an individual flake. Significant moisture gradients are predicted to develop within flakes. Convective heat transfer appears to control the change of moisture content within a flake. Thermodynamic equilibrium between the gas phase and the wood component is not achieved during hot-pressing.
