Water Treatment for the Lumber Industry

Improve Kiln Dried Lumber Production with Proper Water Treatment

The lumber industry is challenged with optimizing production to be fast and efficient with minimal downtime, while creating quality lumber with little waste. Operational costs must be managed carefully to keep prices down and preserve margins.

Water treatment may not be the first thing that comes to mind when trying to improve efficiency. However, when kilns are used to dry wood, the steam boiler can have a big impact on the efficiency of the lumber production process. Proper water treatment can have your steam boiler operating at peak performance and prevent common problems like:

  • Steam boiler carryover
  • High energy and water usage
  • Corrosion of metal surfaces, including kiln coils and steam lines
  • Lumber quality issues
  • Variable drying times
