Valutec supplies TC continuous kilns to Hasslacher Group in Austria

9 April 2021 ` 17:46  

Hasslacher Group 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.

The TC continuous kilns for delivery to Hasslacher Group have eight drying zones and will solely be used to dry siding boards. The maximum annual capacity is approximately 75,000 m³ per kiln. The kilns are built from stainless steel and are equipped with pressure frames for minimal deformation of the uppermost layer of lumber, heat recovery system and the Valmatics 4.0 control system.

Together with the investment, two batch kilns in Preding are being upgraded with Valmatics 4.0. This is the only control system for lumber drying combining simulator technology with adaptive control, and allows for simultaneous optimization of capacity, quality and energy consumption.

The new kilns and the control system upgrades are planned to begin in the fall.
