Valutec to deliver new continuous kiln to Ziegler Holzindustrie

27/09/2017 - 08:03 AM

German Ziegler Holzindustrie, Europe’s largest privately owned sawmill, has placed an order from Valutec. 

“Valutec’s TC continuous kiln is an excellent choice for us, as this solution meets our high demand for capacity combined with flexibility. We have also had very good experiences working with Valutec in recent years,” said Kai Matthies, head of wood drying at Ziegler Holzindustrie.

The TC kiln to be delivered is currently the largest that Valutec has built in central Europe, and one of the largest in the company’s history. Its capacity totals 110,000 cubic meters (46 600 MBF) of lumber per year.

“This is our third order from Ziegler Holzindustrie. Renewed trust is a great acknowledgment for us and it's pleasing that they’ve chosen to invest in a TC continuous kiln. This shows they really believe in our solutions,” says Robert Larsson, CEO at Valutec.

Valutec has previously supplier two continuous kilns to Ziegler Holzindustrie. The first delivery was ten years ago and was followed up in 2014 with an OTC continuous kiln, boasting a capacity of around 50,000 cubic meters (21 200 MBF).

There is huge market potential for timber drying in central Europe, where there has been a high proportion of timber that does not have a long drying phase, when compared to places such as the Scandinavian countries.

The kiln is being made from stainless steel and will be equipped with Valutec’s Valmatics control system. It will be put into operation in February 2018 and will then be the second TC continuous kiln in Germany. Over the year, Valutec has supplied and put into operation a kiln for Egger Brilon.
