Nova Dry Kiln offers a more efficient lumber drying system that results in higher efficiency and higher profit.

At Nova Dry Kiln, we strive to provide a complete drying solution for our primary and secondary woodworking industry clients. Nova’s large kilns range from 18,000 to 110,000 board feet chambers. Our “kinder, gentler” method of drying lumber dramatically reduces the lumber’s degrade and maintains the time parameters of conventional kiln schedules. We have designed our large kilns to surpass new regulations, as well as consumer requirements, for kilns that decrease degrade and reduce waste. This design translates to maximum efficiency and improved financial results for the plant. All Nova kilns are of the highest quality, longevity, and operational economy, plus they are the easiest to use. We can provide turnkey construction services along with startup assistance as part of our overall drying solution. Contact our technical staff today to discuss the best drying solution for your facility!
