Oct. 3, 2017 - Quebec-based timber drying company Secovac has partnered with KBI to launch their Kiln Booster system in Western Canada and the USA. Secovac launched a year ago their innovative drying technology in Eastern Canada, mainly Quebec, and already has 10 installations.

The Kiln Booster system (patent-pending technology) is supported by multiple field tests that demonstrate that the system accelerates the drying of the lumber, improves quality of the dried lumber, and is cost-saving for the mills. The Kiln Booster system maximizes heat transfer within the dry kiln to enable low temperature drying while reducing the drying time of traditional high temperature drying schedules by up to 25 per cent. A lower drying temperature means radically less drying defects resulting in a higher percentage of premium and MSR grades lumber as well as an increase in the productivity of the planner.

The Kiln Booster system is easily installed on existing kilns and integrates seamlessly with current control systems. As part of the launch, KBI will be offering a promotional free 30-day trial* of the Kiln Booster system to mills interested in purchasing the technology.

*Installation costs included. Some conditions may apply.
