Currently, the drying of wood is in an advanced stage. In the past, the wood was usually dried with the help of the sun and wind, in other words in a natural way. The wood could not get dry in a few days or months, it only proceeded in all year round. Therefore, the dried wood was very expensive and valuable. Then the secrets of drying wood have been revealed and one of them was appearance of drying of wood rooms (chambers). This drying method survived till our times. But this method of wood drying is not effective as the wood cannot dry completely itself. This method of drying wood after some time can split and crack the wood because it was not dried completely.
The drying is a process which reduces the moisture content of the wood that will guarantee its resistance, stability and longevity.
The drying process is very important for wood manufacturers because it depends on the quality of wood and the price.
An artificial drying of wood is a placement of wood to the specific chambers which are supported by certain conditions in order to dry wood. These chambers are called the dryers of wood.
The most popular chamber in Lithuania and all around the world is a convectional drying of wood. In these dryers of wood the drying process is the most effective. This technology of wood drying allows greatly reduce number of cracks, so the products of wood retain the esthetic appearance and other positive qualities.
The wood is dried cyclically: it is loaded, dried, unloaded and then the procedures are repeated
A set of a standard convectional drying of wood allows to create a modern drying process without heating bridges, with good heating insulation, mechanical strength and relatively low costing. The convectional drying of wood applies a continuous drying method. The process of drying wood is regulated by the digital microprocessors. This method is secure and easy to control. The internals of the convectional dryers of wood: fans and a control system, a system which regulates the moist of the air in the dryer, internal heating equipment, the circulation of the air, system of heating, moisture and etc.
The wood is loaded from the front with the loader in the convectional dryer of wood. The size of wood dryers can be different (by the needs of customers). We can offer the dryers of wood with non-standard dimensions according to customer requests. The constructions and components of convectional dryers of wood are manufactured from aluminum and stainless steel.
