Kadant products are used in various construction and building product manufacturing applications including extrusion, embossing, and mixing. In addition, we also provide stranders, chippers, and debarkers for use in the production of engineered wood. From shingles and insulation to asphalt and OSB, Kadant’s latest technologies in rotary sealing devices, roll cleaning systems, and wood processing equipment increase process efficiency, reduce energy costs, and enhance productivity.

Roll Cleaning Systems

Roll cleaning systems are used to remove stock accumulations, water, pitch, and filler buildup. Roll cleaning systems’ unique designs are compact and improve uptime, reducing maintenance costs.

Rotary Unions

A rotary union is a rotary sealing device that connects rotating equipment to fixed piping for the transfer of steam, water, thermal oil, coolant, hydraulic oil, air, and other media. Rotary unions can be designed with multiple passages and manage multiple media types simultaneously.


Disc stranders and ring stranders are used to cut tree length or batch fed logs into strands for OSB production.
