Some recent innovations that Wellons has supplied to its customers:
In-Kiln Load Restraint System: Designed to restrain the top tiers of the lumber charge and prevent warping or twisting, Wellons load system uses a hydraulically actuated heavy duty steel structure that is operated at the touch of a button. The hydraulic cyclinders are located external to the kiln on elevated access platforms for easy access and maintenance.
Steam Boil-Off Troughs: Evolving for the technology that Wellons supplied in high temperature kilns in Australia, Wellons has recently supplied a number of kilns in North America with steam boil-off troughs. The advantage of the design is saturated steam at the boiling point temperature of water for better dry bulb control. The troughs are fabricated with stainless steel components, and are direct fired or use indirect heating sources.
