HIGH FREQUENCY VACUUMED WOOD, TIMBER, FRUITS & VEGETABLES DRYING SYSTEMS

Our system of drying wood, timber, fruit and vegetables works with maximum efficiency and requires minimum time, making it very economical compared to the conventional drying furnaces. This technology has been developed in Turkey which processes and dries pine, spruce tree, larch, beech aspen and other exotic trees at the shortest time possible. For instance, whilst the time required to dry 10 m3 of pine timber with conventional furnaces is 1 week, our system only requires 20 hours. In addition, in our system the losses resulting from the process is less than 5% compared with 40% in conventional furnaces.

Please see the below picture of a CONVENTIONALLY dried timber:

In this method, the drying process starts from the outer frame of the timber, the heat is transferred from outside to inside, the liquid pressure rises inside the timber and the timber starts expanding. The outer frame stretches and this results in cracks. This is the most common reason of loss among the drying systems.


Please see the below picture of timber dried with an our DRYING FURNACE:

In our technology, the drying starts from inside the timber and spreads to its outer frame which does not result in any cracks or losses.

THE ADVANTAGES OF THE TIMBER DRYING FURNACE:


•   Drying of timber only takes 20 hours

•   The high quality of the dried product

•   Low energy consumption

•   Small building area

•   Destruction of all insects and fungus during drying and not having the need for impregnates (the process of applying toxic chemicals to the trees)

•   The decrease of thermal tensions that result in cracks due to the application of high frequency and vacuum (as the tree dries from inside to outside)

•   Full automation, almost no human intervention and skill is needed (the presence of only one technician is sufficient)

•   Low initial investment cost and a high ROI (return on investment)

•   100% environmentally friendly

•   100% human safety

•   The ability to use the discharged tree water
