Material selection and varieties
Different mahogany specifications will lead to different drying results. Thicker timber will have a higher moisture content, while thin timber will have a lower moisture content. Different wood species will also lead to different drying results. In general, coniferous wood is easy to dry, and broad-leaved wood is difficult to dry. Therefore, when selecting materials, try to choose the same species or similar species to avoid huge difference of moisture content among the woods at the end.
No matter what kind of equipment and which method is used to load materials, uniform spacers are required to ensure uniform ventilation of the indoor piles and ensure there is no dead ends. If a forklift is used to load materials, the specifications of each small unit should be uniform, and you should consider the airflow should evenly passing through each layer of the board surface in terms of each stacked unit, so that it can fully realize heat transfer and achieve the best drying effect.
Set a drying benchmark table
In order to achieve high-quality drying effect, to minimize economic investment and to generate maximum economic benefits, wood drying enterprises must formulate a drying benchmark table (also called drying operation procedures and key points) in order to achieve the best state.
Mahogany drying process
When the moisture content of wood is high, you should use lower temperature and higher humidity to dry. It is a critical period when the moisture content of wood is about 30%. The drying process must be carried out smoothly. When the wood moisture content of different wood piles varies greatly, it must be processed in balance. Drying could be done empirically without knowing the moisture content of the wood. However, due to the variety and complexity of wood species, dry wood empirically is sometimes unreliable. The excellent wood drying equipment should have the basic function of measuring the moisture content of wood.
