Holzwerke Ladenburger / Kerkingen (Germany)
With the DYNAMIC progressive kiln, the lumber is stacked longitudinally on stackable trolleys and moved fully automatically through the drying zones.
The wood is exposed to different climatic conditions depending on the drying requirement. Depending on the type of wood, wood dimension, initial moisture content, desired final moisture content and quality requirements, the Mühlböck progressive kiln is designed with different climate zones.
A fully automatic and optimized feeding system ensures trouble-free transport of the wood through the kiln. The new security system also ensures smooth operation during operation.
Depending on customer requirements, the drying systems can be individually designed and built.
This version of the plant is suitable for customers for whom thermal energy consumption plays a minor role. Due to excellent drying conditions in this progressive kiln, the best possible timber quality is guaranteed.
The 1306 PRO version therefore represents an optimum solution in the balancing of thermal and electrical energy consumption with drying capacity and investment costs.
Interestingly, the entire thermal energy required for pre drying is sourced from the first and second drying zones. There is no need for additional energy. This allows for the energy-efficient operation of the system – the energy savings potential comes in at up to 50% compared to traditional drying systems, depending on application.
Due to the low value of the thermal connection and energy requirement, an increase in the drying capacity is possible, without any further investment in a heat generator, even in the case of energy bottlenecks.
