Plant Friction wood – Friction smoke

Friction-logs – Friction smoke

In the friction smoke process the smoke is created by applying a friction log, i.e. a dry, solid squared timber of Beech, Oak, etc., which is pushed with pressure against an intermittently rotating, ribbed roller. The resulting friction smoke is directed into the smoking chamber.

In this process, smoke is produced without combustion and with the lowest smoke generation temperature of all known smoking processes, which does not give rise to tar and benzo-a-pyrene residues. according to ISO 9001: 2015.

Properties of our friction logs

We deliver a high and consistent quality across all batches by making our logs from natural, selected German beech wood or other types of wood. The friction logs have a planed surface and are evenly dried to less than 20% residual moisture in our drying chambers. They are subject piece by piece to a manual final inspection. The logs can be delivered with an embossed mark and a batch number and are therefore traceable in the production chain.
