Diagram of the DryZone Process
DryZone System is the first commercial application of patented in-kiln
moisture measurement systems. The DryZone System continuously collects
and interprets moisture measurements generated between two stainless
steel plates. The DryZone System can provide simultaneous real-time
feedback on the moisture content of numerous lumber stacks in multiple
kilns. Readings compare well with results generated from the reliable
but destructive Microwave Oven Dry Method.
tested for several years in commercial softwood drying kilns, prototype
versions of The DryZone System have already provided dry kiln operators
with surprising insight into the drying processes that they manage.
Ultimately,the accuracy and REPEATABILITY of the system has helped them
improve lumber quality and mill throughput,reduce energy costs and most
important, increase mill profitability.
