Storage facilities and pre-drying plants are a true alternative to wood natural drying, mostly in case of damaged wood quality by sudden weather changes or for companies requiring plenty production volume.
These logistics solutions for storage in air-conditioned warehouses allow the wood to gradually release the first part of moisture and then be subjected to final drying processes.
Fresh cut wood moisture can thus be lowered to 20-25% through a constant monitoring of environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity, etc.. Advantages can be briefly outlined, as follows:
Best quality thanks to reduced defects from collapsing (splits) of wood fibers;
Versatile and custom solutions based on customer’s size and requirements;
Operating cost reduction of any large quantity of stored materials;
