Batch Track Kiln

Design / Construcion

 

  • Heavy steel structures (primed and coated) with Al-clad 0.040" aluminum 3" thick R-22 insulation panels.

 

  • Corrugated 0.050" aluminum fan deck for safe maintenance access to equipment.

*Safe / sturdy floor to walk on

 

  • OSHA approved exterior stairs and walkways for exterior motor access.

Heating Systems

 

  • Conventional (185 F/ 85 C) and high-temperature (250 F/ 120 C) kilns are available for any location.

 

  • Heat sources are typically high pressure steam, thermal oil or direct fired utilizing natural gas, green, or dry biomass fuels.

 

  • Bi-metal heat exchange coils in either carbon steel pipe with aluminum fins or stainless steel tube with aluminum fins for steam or thermal oil provide maximum BTU output per unit length.

 

  • Multi-zoned heat control provides uniform drying throughout the entire charge.

 

  • Ask us about "Heat Loss Minimization"

*Helps minimize wasted heat loss

Air Flow

 

  • Air flow capacities up to 1500 FPM (7.6M/sec)

*Faster Drying times

 

  • Variable pitch "Smithco" fans provide maximum efficiency.

* SII is an authorized SMITHCO distributor

 

  • Weighted aluminum horizontal and vertical baffles ensure maximum air circulation through the lumber

Vent / Humidification Sytems

 

  • Insulated roof vents available with on/off pneumatic or modulating electric actuators.

 

 

  • Steam spray with stainless steel manifold is optional for those operations requiring cooling and stress relief.
