Kiln-drying instruction offered by N.C State

The Wood Products Extension at North Carolina State University is offering a course on dehumidification drying of lumber Oct. 6-7.

This short course will provide practical knowledge about using dehumidification to produce kiln dried lumber and the scientific background on related wood properties.

It will have value for those kiln operators beginning to operate a dehumidification kiln and those considering the purchase of a dehumidification kiln. Instruction, by university faculty, will be both in the classroom and through hands-on lab exercises using a 1,000 bf laboratory dry kiln equipped with a commercial lumber dehumidification system.
