Welcome to the forum, Don. Plant yerself a tree on the member map, and don't be afraid to join in.

  There are Many on here that want to set up a small kiln, and from reading your input on the "other" forum, you can be a very big help to those trying to get things right the first time.
 
  We have some long time operators of small kilns that hang out here and offer good advice. Glad to have another knowledgable person, to keep us all on the right track.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

Welcome to the forestry forum, Don.  I like to see you guys congregating here.  It always leads to an interesting thread to hear of the science, theories and disciplines of drying wood. :)

Welcome, Don! 8)  I've been hoping you would show up here without me having to physically drag you over here. :D :D  I look forward to learning more from you. Who knows, I might even buy something from you someday. :)

Can you use a 45'x 8' refrigerated trailer as a kiln building?

Yes, I can use it. When can you bring it? ;D

:D :D Just pullin' yer leg.

Old reefer trailers make great kilns, as I understand it. I take it you got a shot at one?

I have a friend that has one in a reefer trailer....Works Great
The refrigerated shipping containers have better insulation though.

Thanks for the welcome all.....I didn't check the posts on the second page until now.  

A refer container works great. There are some larger sized ones available in Montreal. We had one delivered today and will convert it to a pallet sterilizer and send it on to Mexico.

Good idea Den, thanks.

I have a question, Don mentioned in another thread to not buy a trailer and insulate it. Why not? I don't see any difference in doing that from building my own chamber from scratch. My thoughts are to buy a cheap dry van trailer and insulate it with the foil insulation. Use two layers with a vapor barrier in between the two. Seal the gaps with a good silicone. I would glue these on using the new high temp construction adhesive. For heat I want to use an exchanger kind of like what Al is using. Then use my L200 to remove water. Whatchya think?

It is very difficult to insulate the floor properly and board insulation on the wall should be put on in multiple layers because it expands and contracts. Even so, this causes cracks to open and condensation to form on the steel. The steel quickly corrodes and in a few months you have a lousy kiln. Also it costs more to try to insulate a trailer than to buy the right thing in the first place.
