High Temperature Southern Yellow Pine Kiln

High Temperature / Southern Yellow Pine Kilns

Wellons excels in proven design, manufacture and installation of kilns for high temperature, high performance lumber processing. Our commitment to quality for extreme applications is the logical extension of our philosophy of manufacturing hardworking, rugged equipment.

The Wellons external cross shaft fan system is used exclusively for these applications. The heating system is designed with more control zones and heating surface area is increased. Joints and connections are given special attention to ensure tight closure with minimal leakage.

Like our standard kiln, our high temperature kiln is designed for optimal operator control, low maintenance and easy access. The platforms that support the control valves and external motors are provided with catwalks and stairways for safe and convenient access. As with all Wellons kilns, fan decks are clear and accessible from end-wall access doors for quick and easy inspection, adjustments or maintenance.
