A pulp cord table is an essential piece of equipment for any pulp mill. It allows you to calculate how many cords of wood can be produced by a particular tree. This table is available on “Log Scale” sticks. It will tell you how many timber lines will be paid per tree depending on the tree’s branch structure. It is also useful when estimating the amount of wood needed for a particular project. But before calculating how many cords you need, ensure you understand the process’s basics.
Face cord and total cord prices vary widely. To ensure you’re paying the lowest price for your face cord, compare it to the total cord value. You can call dealers and request the price per piece length. After you have the price per piece length, you can compare it to the total cord value and decide based on those numbers.
A face cord is a cord of wood that has two equal parts. It is usually a square foot that contains around four feet of lumber. A complete line can be eight feet long, four feet wide, and four feet high. The exact volume of wood inside a cord will vary, depending on the pieces’ size and the bark’s presence.
A face cord typically measures about four feet high by eight feet long and is 16 inches deep. In general, one face cord contains one-third of a complete line. A face cord is cheaper than a full cord, and you can usually get a lower price if you buy it from a wood seller.
A face cord of wood is four feet long and eight feet long, and one log is placed on top of the other. A face cord of wood should be stacked compactly and not have any visible gaps. A firewood log must be 12 to twenty inches thick for a full-face cable to qualify. In addition, records must be compactly stacked so they can be stacked on top of each other without gaps.
Face cord value
Many factors can affect the price of firewood. The cost of face cords can vary considerably from that of a complete line. Depending on the length of the piece, you can compare face cord prices with the total cord value to find the best deal. The price difference can be calculated using a face cord value table if you know the size of the entire cord.
Usually, there are twelve face cords per load, but a logging truck may sometimes have a mixed bag of fewer than twelve cords. An assorted pack may only have ten or nine lines, so a pulp cord of nine threads will be worth only twenty-seven. In these cases, you should add the face cord value of two-and-a-half cables to get the actual value of a full cord.
Face cords are usually 8 feet long and 12 inches wide. This means that the total volume of a complete line is eight feet wide by four feet high. You can then use these measurements to determine the total cord value of your pulp logs. Make sure you buy records that are short enough and that there are no gaps between the logs.
When buying wood, it’s important to remember that different wood species have different ‘face cord values.’ For example, if your wood is made from soft maple, you’ll get more money from a single ‘face cord’ than a whole ‘log.’
Face cord cost
A face cord is a quarter or one-third of a cord. A full cord is three times as long as a half cord. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has published a document explaining the definition of a “cord.” Read the paper to learn more about a “cord” (pages 115/116). There are many different fractions, including 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 cords. It is also possible to purchase only one-eighth of a cord.
A twenty-four-foot log truck will hold about eight to ten cords. A load made entirely of big logs will produce less heat than a load with smaller rosters. In addition, the type of wood used will determine how much heat is produced. Hardwoods, for example, will produce more heat than soft maple, white birch, basswood, or balsam. Those types of wood are less valuable and have lower heat production.
The price of a full cord can vary widely. A face cord can be anywhere from $40 to $200. This can depend on seasonality and availability. High-end hardwoods produce large amounts of heat and cost more than low-end woods. Another factor that affects the price of a full cord is the length of the piece. Generally, a shorter cable will cost more than a longer one.
A face cord of wood is roughly one-third of a full cord. Face cords are the cheapest type of wood, but they are still expensive. They are typically eight feet long, sixteen inches deep, and four feet tall.
Factors that affect the price of a face cord
The face cord is a pile of wood roughly 8 feet long, 4 feet high, and indeterminate in width. Some sources suggest the width should be about 2.7 feet, but this still needs to be confirmed. Besides, sellers’ measurements can differ a lot. So, the best way to know the exact size is to ask a seller for a sample.
Using a face cord table
The most common measurement for pulpwood and fuelwood is the cord. One cord usually contains about 90 cubic feet, depending on the size of the pieces, whether there’s bark or not, and the method used to stack them. However, the actual wood volume may be much less.
The face cord is a third of a complete line, typically four feet wide and eight feet long. A full cable has approximately 180 cubic feet or 5.1 cubic meters. First, calculate the volume of your pile to make use of a face cord table.
Then, compare the price of the face cord to that of the entire thread. Sometimes, the costs of the face and complete lines can be very different. To determine which face cord is the better value, you can call dealers in your area. You can also ask them to provide the average piece length of the face cord for you.
