Chip Conditioning

Chip conditioning prepares the chips for efficient delignification by making cracks along their grains, unlike chip slicers that fractionate chips. Chip conditioning generates fewer fines, achieves an average reduction of 1.2% in rejects, and requires less maintenance than slicing equipment (Kramer et al., 2009. P. 89).
