Thanks for tuning into part 2 of the Steam Wood Kiln episode. If you missed part 1 of the Steam Wood Kiln, check it out here.
We are back with Tom Thompson at Salem Lumber. Today, he will walk us through the final processes of the lumber drying operation.
Without the steam wood kiln, wood could take up to 2-3 months to completely dry out. With the steam and coils, the drying process only takes about 72 hours. After drying, the wood goes into a building to be arranged and packaged to be shipped.
