What Is Kiln Drying? The Reasoning Behind Drying Wood

Jul 27, 2021 Even when wood has been kiln-dried, it may have a documented moisture content level, but at any step of the process after the kiln–transportation, manufacturing, storage or installation–it is possible for wood, even manufactured wood products, to lose additional moisture (in a dry environment) or re-absorb ambient moisture, altering its

Feb 09, 2018 For all kiln drying schedules, a heater should be used to sterilize the lumber and kill any insects that may be present. For a kiln temperature of 140˚ F, sterilization takes three to five hours. With a 130˚ F kiln temperature, sterilization will take 10 to 12 hours (Dry Kiln Operators Manual, 1991). These figures hold true for lumber up to 2

INTRODUCTION TO KILN DRYING - Nyle Systems

The chamber for a dehumidification kiln can be built from wood, concrete block, steel, aluminum, or almost any combination of these materials. It is important that the chamber be tight and insulated to about R–30. Almost all kilns under 25,000 board feet (60m ) are wood frame chambers. A wood frame is fairly easy to insulate properly, and is basically built like a well insulated garage. At Nyle, we provide you with technical drawings and expert advice on kiln
