Heinola Sawmill Machinery Inc. has delivered 8 high capacity HFB 2-zone progressive kilns, four of them for drying sideboards and four for planks, to ULK sawmill in Kostylevo, Arkhangelsk region, Russia. The total annual capacity is approx. 400,000 cubic metres when drying spruce and pine timber to the final moisture of 11%, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.


The drying kiln building is made of wide stainless steel elements. The channels are equipped with pressure frames and the newest HEINOLA Eco drying kiln control system. Transfer of the timber loads is done automatically with rail tracks and 8.2 m wide wagons. There can be two 4.1 m wide loads side by side and three one on the other.

The wide lifting doors are equipped with double fall protection. The effective radiators are equipped with triple freezing protection system. The temperature sensors, the grease pipes for the fan motors and the cylinders for the pressure frames have been placed in the attic. Besides, the exhaust fan’s motor is located outside the exhaust duct. The machinery will thus last longer and the service and maintenance activities are easy.

Heinola Sawmill Machinery Inc. is the only supplier in Finland concentrating on development of high-quality drying kiln technology.
