Timber-Dry Management Control System

Precision wood drying that’s easy to use.

Nova Dry Kiln’s new Timber-Dry Management Control System utilizes state-of-the-art instrumentation that takes kiln drying into the 21st century and yet produces the brighter higher quality kiln dried product your customers have come to expect. By providing an easy-to-use and flexible operator interface, the kiln operator ultimately determines the optimum drying recipe for the lumber to be dried. This recipe is then sequentially executed automatically. The Timber-Dry Management Control System provides more information about the drying process, which leads to greater control over it, yielding increased quality and shorter drying times.
