Vilsa Ltd. has experience in timber drying since 2015.
Timber can be dried in three chambers simultaneously, with a total capacity of 180-220 m3.
The maximum length of the timber is 7.0 m.
Packaging requirements: the timber should be packaged in stacks of 1.15 by 1.15 m using stacking strips, with a minimum thickness of 20 mm.
A full drying cycle to reach moisture content of 18% takes 5-10 days.
The duration of the cycle cannot be estimated accurately in advance because it is influenced by various properties of the wood:
- structure and density of wood;
- thickness of the material;
- initial moisture content, etc.
Cracking and bending of wood during drying is possible; it is a natural process and cannot be avoided.
