CONTINUOUS DRY KILNS (CDK)


Continuous Dry Kiln Wellons

Continous Dry Kilns

The Wellons CDK system has a reverse flow double track design and incorporates preheating, drying, cooling, equalizing and conditioning phases all in one extended chamber. The lumber stacks traverse through the kiln in opposite directions on the two tracks. The lumber is automatically advanced, based on the moisture content of the lumber in the MD (main drying) section by a set of hydraulic pusher units.

CDK Technology Benefits

CDK technology offers many benefits that are not typically available in conventional kilns, such as:

  • Improved grade recovery.

  • Fully automated.


System Benefits

  • Wellons CMZ control system with WINKILN software

  • High capacity heat systems.

  • High capacity fan systems.

  • TCS Moisture Meter Systems.

  • Sturdy structure and housing capable of withstanding the stresses of high-temp drying schedules.

  • Extra heavy duty trucks and bunks to accommodate heavier cribs and more frequent cycles.

  • Many other standard features are included with all Wellons kilns including Toshiba motors, Fisher valves, Smithco fans, and the Wellons proprietary features that make our kiln the best available anywhere.
