    Case Study: Doing More with Continuous Dry Kilns We know doing more with less improves margins and profitability, but it can also earn the opportunity to do more with more. That’s certainly the case in the Gulf South region, where several projects promise to transform already-productive lumber mills into top performers for years to come. The patent and records of using kilns go into the late s, so I wonder why IL took so long to get a kiln. These early kilns were natural draft and had a fire built under the load of lumber. Kiln drying was discussed by the US Forest Products Lab prior to that time (they are in WI).

    Kiln Dried Douglas Fir Lumber Having built a solid, nationwide reputation on our high-quality “Socomi Brand” green Doug Fir products, South Coast Lumber Co. has responded to marketplace demand by expanding and upgrading our manufacturing facilities to produce kiln dried Doug Fir (KDDF) lumber.

    No previous drying experience or training is necessary. Instruction will include lectures and demonstrations. Wood moisture relations, kiln operation, lumber handling and storage, and drying schedule preparation will be emphasized as it relates to drying hardwood lumber. Topics to . The initial moisture content of the 65 planks A and the 65 planks B showed a mean value of % and a standard deviation of % ().The high variability in the moisture content of both sub-sets of planks (a minimum of % to a maximum of %), which were of similar origin and subjected to similar environmental conditions, demonstrates the enormous heterogeneity of cork due to its Cited by: 5.

We source our Douglas-fir lumber from sawmills throughout the Pacific Northwest and have WCLIB certified graders on staff to ensure that grades and quality are consistent throughout.

We keep most grades in stock for quick turn around and order fulfillment. Kiln Drying (KD) Services When trees such as Douglas Fir, Hem Fir, Redwood, or Cedar are fresh cut, the lumber and timber they provide contain a great deal of moisture and are considered, “green”.

Lumber and timber that have high moisture content, tend to warp and split as the moisture leaves the material. Lumber companies Read more/5(2). Douglas Fir Lumber Doug Fir Lumber Green (GDF) & Kiln Dried (KDDF) As one of the world’s premium building products, Douglas fir (Doug Fir) lumber is prized for its straight grain patterns, high strength-to-weight ratios, dimensional stability and nail-holding power.

For. Douglas-fir Shrinkage and Dimensional Stability Douglas-fir is an important building timber in North America, particularly in the Pacific north West, where it has a reputation for being naturally dimensionally stable – the ability to “season well in position” and retaining its shape during use (WWPA, ).File Size: KB.

Since the boards are thin (9/16"-5/8"), there is minimal contraction that will occur when drying. The boards also have the added benefit of being vertical, allowing for airflow on all sides.

Kiln Dried A great example of when to use kiln dried wood, besides the obvious framing lumber, is when you are installing a cedar deck. Two charges of 2x4 Douglas-fir lumber were dried from green in a small kiln at Oregon State University.

The kiln dry- and wet-bulb temperatures were based on a schedule provided by Hampton Lumber. The second charge was done because the kiln wet-bulb was not operating properly during the first charge.

Results from the first charge would not. "This book describes the fundamental basis of kiln-drying technology, enabling forest companies to improve their drying operations as high-quality timbers become scarcer and former wasteful practices can no longer be tolerated.

The acceptable moisture content in wood depends on two factors: The wood’s final use. The. For the modification of kiln drying schedule, relations between resistance to drying Rd and the moisture content or drying times were found for 4/4, 6/4 and 8/4 green Douglas fir heartwood by the.

When the drying is done in a kiln, the product is known as kiln-dried timber or lumber, whereas air drying is the more traditional method.

There are two main reasons for drying wood: Woodworking When wood is used as a construction material, whether as a structural support in a building.
