Do you know if this would work for a Heat treat kiln for firewood ?

Armechanic,

Yes, this equipment would work to control a kiln to hea treat firewood.  The best part is, the controller produces a hard copy record of the temperature.  I believe this would be of great benefit to your business. 

You can show your customers the temperture their firewood was treated to and for how long it was held at that temperture.  It is also, insurance for you should someone attempt to say your fire wood was not properly treated.  All you have to do is pull the file for that run and show the hard copy record of the temperture and time it was held at the temperture.

It seems that it would be hard for anyone to prove that the chart is related specifically to any one piece, or load, or charge of wood. I'd almost say "impossible". Yes, I'm a pessimist.  ;)

Stamp the firewood lot with the date on your paper insert that states its heat treated and usda approved.  Keep your kiln logs which are also date stamped, and then it's your paper trail against their word.  You win :D

It's a simple process of record keeping. Assign each kiln charge a lot number. Record the lot number ion each graph.  Record who you sell each lot number to. 

A very simple process, even a pessimist could do this.
