It refers to the process of drying or seasoning the wood in order to reduce its moisture content before it can be used. The machine used for drying is called kiln. Air drying is another popular method drying wood.
Fresh trees and logs contain a lot of water, almost 50% of their weight. Freshly milled wood or timber has a high moisture content, which makes it difficult to use the wood for firewood or woodworking purposes.
Whether you are acquiring wood for burning or woodworking, it needs to be dried through proper means to reduce the moisture content and increase its usability.
When used in construction, the wood must be properly dried to minimize the moisture amount in order to prevent it from shrinking. High moisture absorption in wood can cause unequal shrinkage, which may lead to damage to the wood.
Similarly, wood intended to be used for burning must have minimal moisture content. High moisture in the wood will make it difficult to burn, as a lot of energy will be wasted in heating the water vapour in the wood.
At ETS Peninsula House Capital, we follow both traditional and modern methods for drying timber. The two most common methods used by us are:
1) Air drying
This involves exposing the timber sheets to a high flow of air by either natural or mechanical means. Furthermore, the planks are coated with a moisture-resistant substance for protection against moisture.
2) Kiln Drying
This is the advanced and most prefered method of wood drying at ETS Peninsula House Capital. In this, we use a special setup called kiln, where specialised heating conditions are used to artificially dry the wood without harming its quality or strength.
