Better Builtís Predryers

General capabilities

Predryers are an effective way to dry large quantities of lumber at reduced costs. They have the ability to dry lumber down to 20 - 30% mc without checking. This ensures fast, efficient final drying. Predryers are offered in single or double opposing fan line configuration or in center fanwall design with forklift access along both outside walls. Some predryers feature Galvanized frames with hanging stainless steel roof panels, while others are all aluminum and stainless steel and have enough heat and air to dry green oak to 20% in 22 days or can even finish dry to 6%.
