FIBER OPTICS IN WOOD DRYING APPLICATIONS

Why Wood drying

In the wood industry, wood is dried

• Remove moisture

• Improve structural integrity to avoid damage from shrinkage

• Control the color, shape

• Elimination of living organisms like insects and parasites.

Advantages of Microwave/RF Drying

• Fast drying ( 2 days in a Kiln instead of 2 month in the back yard ) 

• The most homogeneous drying process

• Minimize danger of cracks, shape and changing the color of wood

• Avoiding burning the center of the beam


Chemical free

• Methyl bromide (MeBr) has been widely used to decontaminate wood infected by living organisms.

• MeBr is highly toxic and depletes the stratospheric ozone layer, the use of Microwave is non toxic and eco friendly

Typical Customers

• Wood processors

• Wood Exporters

• Furniture manufacturers

• Shipping material providers

Advantages of Fiber Optics

Fiber optic monitoring in wood drying provides significant benefits to traditional methods

• Test certificates for customer specification compliance

• Fiber optic sensors are immune to RF/ Microwave

• Avoid RF waves burning the center of the beam

• Continuous Monitoring for quality control
