HASSLACHER Group first in Austria with TC kilns

HASSLACHER Group, one of the world’s leading producers of glulam and Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), invests in TC continuous kilns from Valutec. The deal means the well-known timber industry group becomes the first in Austria to own the groundbreaking lumber kiln. This is also a new prestigious order for Valutec, which strengthens its position as a global leader within the field of continuous kilns.


Study shows benefits of longer reversing

One hour's fan rotation reversal has long been the standard in modern batch kilns. All the same, there have been few proper studies into how lumber is affected by fan reversal time. Because changing fan rotation parameters in the control system is easy, Valutec, Luleå University of Technology and RISE wanted to conduct a study within the Bioinnovation project into whether a longer reversing time can help improve the drying process.
