Freshly cut wood has a high water content. Before it can be used as construction timber or processed into other wood products, the excess moisture needs to be removed from it. For this purpose, what is known as the green wood is stored in special drying chambers, where it is dried in a hot air stream until the desired residual moisture level is reached.
Depending on the type of wood, the drying process can take from a few days to several weeks and requires a great deal of energy. To ensure energy-efficient operation and optimum drying results, the climatic conditions in the drying chamber must be precisely controlled and monitored.
In our live webinar, you will learn how to optimise the drying process with the help of humidity and temperature sensors and also discover which sensors are suitable for this purpose.
