Wood Drying & Accurate Humidity Measurements

Vaisala Knowledge eNewsletter

Wood Drying Article-newsletter-Online & Helsinki, Finland — Wood drying is a very complex process when you want to achieve the best results – relative humidity must be monitored continuously.

Moreover, the relative humidity levels must be shown correctly as inaccurate data may cause too slow drying process, leading to longer drying times and reduced capacity.

Relative humidity plays an essential role in wood drying, along with time and temperature.

Normally these parameters are based on previous drying experience, with the goal being to optimize drying time while minimizing wood cracking.

The process parameters are unique to the system used, with different woods and seasonal variations affecting the result.

To achieve the best results relative humidity needs to be continuously monitored.
