Title: Kiln. firewood/pallet/lumber
Post by: Pclem on March 20, 2017, 01:38:27 pm
I have read, understand, and agree to the terms.

Firewood kiln built with 40' reefer and nyle kiln components. Equipped with controls, heat exchangers, vents, wired in breaker panel, and control panel that records heat treatment process. Fueled with outdoor boiler.  Can also be used to heat treat pallets, or dry lumber. I upgraded to a kiln direct miniquick due to sales. 25k invested. Willing to sell for 15k [not to local firewood competition].

How well does this work for heat treatment of wood to meet USDA specs ?   I am in Arkansas.  I am curious about how well a wood boiler will work.

It meets requirements with no problem. We keep the boiler temp at 190 degrees. Wisconsin used to be 160 degrees for 60 or 75min, and we would easily get that, sometimes reaching 175 at the inner core of the firewood. We now have 140 degrees, so obviously no prob still. Alot of guys couldn't meet the 160 requirement with hot water, but with the help of Nyle kilns, they put a package together that works great.
