Quality in every regard

At Valutec, we ensure that every sawmill is confident in our unwavering commitment to quality. Our TC continuous kilns are a prime example, renowned for their combination of superior quality, productivity and energy efficiency. These benefits have been instrumental in positioning Valutec as the preferred choice for future-oriented sawmills across North America.

Recently, we had the opportunity to showcase Valutec and our TC kiln at the spring meeting of the American West Coast Dry Kiln Association. We are very grateful to our hosts and for the warm reception!

Meeting sawmills to learn more about their current situation is incredibly important to us. I will always make it a priority to visit your sawmill while participating in as many exhibitions as we can. Next up is TP&EE in Portland, Oregon, September 25-27. I hope to see you there!

In addition to learning more about the situation at the sawmills, meetings are also an opportunity for us to share the new improvements we offer. One such improvement is that we have refined the actual moisture content calculation model in our control system Valmatics 4.0. That means that we can estimate the final moisture content with an accuracy of approximately one percent. This model, built on machine learning, enables automatic adjustments of temperature and fans. We have also introduced additional electricity and energy-saving features.

These advancements lead directly to a more cost-effective drying process and end products of the highest quality. Additionally, we have thoroughly assessed our sustainability performance, ensuring that every sawmill can be confident that investing in a kiln from Valutec aligns with their climate goals. Many view our industry as a leader in the climate transition, and rightly so, in our opinion. Increasing the use of wood products is a vital part of a sustainable future.

Wishing you all a great summer!
