How to Dry Lumber For Quality & Profit Workshop

The purpose of this course is to provide a basic understanding of wood and how to dry it. Practical, up-to-date information will be provided on wood properties and how wood dries. You’ll learn how both steam-heated and dehumidification kilns are made, operated and maintained, and how to create and modify kiln schedules for different species. Drying to meet the European quality standards and heat treating standards will also be discussed.
What to expect...
Information will be presented by university practitioners and researchers, consultants, and industry representatives using multimedia and laboratory exercises. Lunch with manufacturers’ representatives will help you appreciate the range of equipment available. You will receive printed materials dealing with different aspects of the course.
If you are involved with lumber drying and its management and want practical, hands-on training and knowledge, this course has something for you.
