Valutec delivers kiln to Swedish Vida

08/06/2017 - 10:38 AM

Vida Alvesta has chosen to invest in a continuous kiln from Valutec. The investment will increase the drying capacity at Vida Alvesta from around 175,000 cubic metres to 225,000 cubic metres and will help to even out production and facilitate stock management.

The continuous kiln will be delivered and installed in the autumn and put into operation in November. Vida Alvesta already has ten batch kilns and one continuous kiln from Valutec.

The plant to be delivered is a 2-zone FB continuous kiln, which means that drying takes place in two separate zones. The first zone provides quicker humidifying, which reduces the risk of dry cracks at the input end. The second zone acts as an equalisation zone and reduces moisture distribution. The continuous kiln is equipped with Valutec’s Valmatics control system and will solely be used for drying spruce down to a moisture ratio of 18%.

Vida is Sweden’s largest privately-owned sawmill group with around 950 employees at 18 production facilities, nine of which are sawmills. Production mainly focuses on construction lumber for a number of different markets.
