Steam Culture: Steam and Wood Kiln

Posted by Ritchie Ware on Jan 25, 2016 3:43:31 PM

WARE Steam Culture Wood Kiln Louisville KY Rental BoilerOn today's Steam Culture, we are learning how steam is used to dry lumber for cabinets and hardwood flooring. Our friend Tom Thompson from Salem Hardwood gives us a tour of his operation, and demonstrates how steam is used to dry lumber and prepare it for the next cycle of life.

In order for the wood to dry the lumber is placed inside a kiln, then it's exposed to indirect steam heat of 160-190 degrees for up to 70 hours until dry. Salem Hardwood dries Red Oak, White Oak, Ash, Hickory, Walnut and Poplar.

We will have part 2 of this series next week!

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and tune in every Friday for our latest Steam Culture.
