Kiln Drying


Kiln Drying: 
Kiln Drying is Used to Reduce the Moisture Content in the Wood. Pallets Are Stacked Inside Large Heating Chambers (Kilns), and Then Heated Slowly to Evaporate Excess Moisture. The Aim is Moisture Reduction, Not Pest Eradication. The Standard to Which Pallets Are Dried Will Vary Depending on Their Intended End Use. Kiln Drying is Crucial About Reduce Susceptibility to Moulds and Fungal Decay on the Pallets. Kiln Drying is Also Beneficial That Maximises Strength, Since Mechanical Properties of Timber Start to Increase As It Dries Below 28% Moisture Content.It Also Make Empty Pallets Easier to Move By Hand, Since Kiln Dried Timber is Lighter Than Green Undried Timber and Reduce Corrosion of Nails and Metal Fixings.
