FPInnovations is currently supporting the first industrial implementation of the continuous precision drying technology. The process, that allows for the redrying of selected lumber pieces at a given target moisture content (MC), is equipped with an MC measurement system, a decision support tool that is provided by SCS Forest Products by Finna Group (SCSFP), an FPInnovations member company. The moisture meter measurement determines whether the product requires redrying or not. For FPInnovations’ Advanced Wood Manufacturing team, this is a step towards the development of technological solutions that can help achieve the desired levels of precision for the moisture content in an automated, reproducible and continuous way. …The MC precision improvement in the process will lead to a better dryer utilization and also to a better global quality of the products.
