Kiln drying is very popular among lumber manufacturers as it is a faster, greener and more cost effective option. However, improper use of this technology can lead to cracks and deformation, which reduces the quality and value of raw materials. To avoid this, it is necessary to maintain a balance between the temperature and air relative humidity levels as well as the rate of lumber moisture at all stages of drying.
Using the E2228 relative humidity and temperature transmitter helps to set the desired conditions in the chambers and control the process depending on the purpose and type of materials. Version with a heavy duty remote probe allows instrument to operate at high temperatures (up to 125 ℃) of drying kilns.
At Evikon MCI we also offer the E2353 moisture transmitter to control the moisture content in different layers of lumber. The device uses robust stainless steel screw electrodes and FEP insulated connection cable to ensure the stable operation under the harsh conditions.
