equilibration process (usually drying) causes unequal shrinkage in the wood, and can cause damage to the wood if the equilibration process occurs too rapidly. The process of equilibration needs to be controlled in order to prevent damage to the wood. • Wood burning - When wood is burned, it is usually the best to dry it first. Damage due to shrinkage is not a problem here, and the drying process may proceed more rapidly than in the case of drying

METHODS OF WOOD DRYING By Daniel Yourdon Over the past year I have been gathering information on various methods of wood drying. This article is an attempt to consolidate that information. Specifically it will cover three methods: Boiling, Freezing, and Microwaving. BOILING Drying time reduced an average of 50% over air-dryingRead More
Wood Drying is the process of reducing the moisture of the wood before its use. Wood needs to be dried in order to use it for commercial purposes; be it in construction or even using it as firewood, moisture content makes usage of wood difficultRead More

Apr 07, 2020 Drying Wood is the process, of reducing a significant part of the humidity of the wood, which makes it stable over time, in size and shape. This advantages makes dry wood perfect choice for woodworking projects or wood burning. The green wood has a humidity of 35% -45% depending on the essence, and after the drying process its humidity isRead More
Home air-drying tips. Process logs in a timely fashion. If a tree has just been cut down, or there has been recent storm damage, it’s best to process the logs into lumber as quickly as possible; doing so will help to open up the wood and aid in drying, which can prevent rot or stain from marring the wood. Bark on whole logs can act as aRead More
The importance of the process of drying solids in industry is widely recognized for some time now. The energy consumption in drying and its proportion in total energy balance has been oftenRead More
The numerical modeling of physical and mechanical phenomena involved in wood drying: an excellent tool for assisting with the study of new processes, Tutorial, Proceedings of the FifthRead More
May 06, 2021 May 06, 2021 The traditional rule-of-thumb for air-drying lumber is to allow one year of drying time per inch of wood thickness to properly air-dry lumber. In situations where green wood is to be processed into usable boards, (especially in the case of thicker lumber), a kiln is frequently used to control the drying processRead More
air. However, some wood species will rot before the air drying is complete. Because certain wood species will rot before air drying can be completed in some climates, wood is artificially conditioned by one of three primary methods: (1) steaming-and-vacuum, (2) boiling-under-vacuum (commonly referred to as the Boulton process), and (3) kiln dryingRead More
The process of simultaneously drying and preservative treating green and partially unseasoned wood comprising contacting the wood with a preservative-containing hydrocarbon fraction having an initial atmospheric pressure boiling point of from about 250 F. to about 350 F. and a boiling range of not greater than about 60 F. at a temperatureRead More
Wood drying: factors influencing the process Water is one of the main factors influencing the mechanical and physical characteristics of wood. When the tree is felled it can contain, depending on the woody species and the growing environment, from 50% to 300% of humidityRead More
Kiln dried wood is a drying process that is far more efficient than air-drying lumber as you can control both the temperature and humidity, while even regulating steam levels. If you don't have access to a wood drying kiln , but you've got cash to splash, a quick Google search for kiln drying wood near me should point you in the rightRead More
Step 5: Store the wood in a warm area. This step appears to dry once the wood is completely coated because the paste absorbs moisture, preventing the wood from shrinking, splitting, or cracking. After seven days, check it, but keep in mind that thick slices may take a few weeks to dryRead More
