What Is Kiln Drying? The Reasoning Behind Drying Wood
The Kiln Drying Process
When trees are felled and brought to a lumber mill, the first step
is usually to debark and sort the logs by species, size or by end
use. Logs destined for wood flooring, for example, are then sawn
into rough boards of the required dimensions. These are often edged
or trimmed for length before they are dried.
Drying can be done either by air or by kilns, which use circulating
heated air to more rapidly remove the excess moisture from the
wood. Each charge (or kiln load) is sorted by species and
dimensions to optimize the process and to ensure that the final
moisture content levels are even across the charge. After the wood
has reached the correct moisture level for that species, it is sent
through the planer and planed to its final dimensions, sorted to
grade and shipped out. For wood flooring or other specific end
products, the wood is typically shipped to a manufacturer for
further planing, processing, and finishing. Mills and manufacturers
alike invest time, money and training into their drying processes
to provide optimal grade products at the correct moisture levels
for their customers.
So if the wood leaves the kiln at the required moisture content
level, the moisture content process is complete, right? It might
seem feasible, but in reality, kiln drying is only the first step
of a wood product’s life-long interaction with moisture. Kiln
drying significantly reduces the moisture content of green lumber,
but there’s more to be considered.
1. How to choose size and capacity of the kilns?
It depends on time for drying cycle, and volume to dry per cycle or
2. How long does each drying cycle take.
It depends on species, size of timber, moisture content before
drying, and moisture content after drying.
3. What to be done before installation of kilns?
To complete concrete foundation according to seller's drawings, and
get power and water supply in position.
