Design / Construction

 

  • All aluminum structures with Al-clad aluminum or 304 stainless steel insulated wall panels are designed for your local wind and snow loads.

*Meets local building codes

 

  • All roofs are constructed with 304 stainless steel insulated panels. *Corrosion resistant

 

  • Exterior wall and roof insulation panels are "ship lapped" design and are "open backed" to utilize passive ventilation which keeps insulation dry (factory installed insulation guarantees quality)

*Maintain insulation values

 

  • Building insulation values ranging from R-22 to R-34.

*Saves heating energy

 

  • Fan decks constructed of 0.050" aluminum for safe maintenance access.

*Safe / sturdy floor to walk on

 

  • Manually opened R-Lok non-bolted 3" thick R-20+ doors.

*Simple operation

OR

  • Hydraulically opened 5" thick corrugated Al-clad exterior skins with R-24 rating.

*Allows for 1 man operation

 

  • Al-clad aluminum corrugated or standing seam roofing with no vents or penetrations in roof.

*Eliminate roof leaks

 

  • All roof slopes are 1/12 pitch exceeding any other kiln manufacturer's design.

*Eliminates ponding roof water

 

  • Roof mounted Air-Foil passive ventilators move dry ambient air across roof insulation to keep it dry.

*Maintains insulation values

Heating System

 

  • Heating exchange coils are constructed of 0.083" stainless tube with aluminum fins utilizing steam, hot water, or thermal oil.

*Longer lasting

 

  • Modulating heat valves with properly matched "float and thermostatic" traps provide consistent heat and condensate flow.

 

  • "Heat loss minimization" prevents exhausting heated air during venting cycles which has not yet passed through the lumber.

*Saves heat energy

 

 

Air Flow

 

  • Heavy duty fan truss with motor mounts on fan housings forward for easy maintenance.

 

  • Aluminum baffles (horizontal and vertical) ensure maximum air circulation through the lumber.

*Less by-pass air reduces energy costs

 

  • Variable pitch "Smithco" fans provide maximum efficiency.

*SII is an authorized SMITHCO distributor

 

  • Variable speed fan controls provide flexibility for varous species and thicknesses tremendous energy saving.

*ROI in less than 18 months

 

  • Stationary rear horizontal "rubber" baffles eliminate need to raise or lower rear bafflres.

*Save maintenance expenses for repairs

Vent / Humidification Systems

 

  • SII offers vents in several styles to meet various drying requirements, passive on/off pneumatic, electric modulating, or powered vents with either pneumatic or electric actuators.

*Provides greater flexibility

 

  • Passive or powered vents located in front and rear walls (not roofs) provide better operation and visibility from the ground.

*Helps keep vents working properly

 

  • Conditioning steam spray or our "EMC Mistifyer" cool water spray systems utilize stainless steel spray manifolds to eliminate rust stained lumber.

 

  • Insulated and gasketed vent bodies and lids.

*Minimize condensation and corrosion

 

  • "EMC Mistifyer" high pressure (800-1200 psi) cool water spray system.

*Saves boiler chemicals and steam
