Vacuum drying chamber BKS V6-10


The device is intended for drying sawn timber using new technology, where the key element is modulated infrared radiation emitters.

The main dignity of our kilns is the ability to use them for drying of any kinds and varieties of sawn wood. The long practice of using found that the greatest economic efficiency in drying chamber gives for solid woods and lumber with large transverse dimensions.


Drying kiln BKS V6-10 is the type of drying chambers with hand loading of timber on the two trolleys. Package on the trolleys is formed by stacking layers of sawn timber with shelves that contain emitters. The layer timber - shelf with emitters. For boards to 25 mm thick can be laying boards in two layers using 1 cm bar.

After formatting of two packages of timber on trolleys, they put into the kiln. The connecting cables of shelves are plug in to the connectors, which are located on both sides of the doors inside the kiln.

The door closed as follows: the flange of door brings to the flange of drying apparatus, the vacuum pump switch on, press to the door and retained until created a vacuum inside the dryer. Additional pressing of door is not required. Mechanical locks are used only for transportation purposes.
