Optimizing the drying process and re-drying wets

April 26, 2016 - When OptiSaw West comes to Richmond, B.C. on June 14, mill managers will have the opportunity to take in two presentations focused on getting the most out of their drying operations:

Radio frequency continuous re-drying process
Join FPInnovations’ Vincent Lavoie as he discusses this concept and their trials combining RF technology with a streamlined process to identify and re-dry wets. Avoid over-drying at the main kilns or excess handling of wets with this single-board approach.

Continuous and progressive drying for large-scale sawmills
This presentation will describe the advantages of continuous and progressive drying for large-scale softwood sawmills. It will offer a case study on a sawmill focusing on the issues and opportunities the technology was installed to address at the mill, as well as discuss challenges and results to date.

Seats are limited and early bird ends soon!
