Building my first dehumidifier kiln.
« on: October 08, 2010, 09:40:17 PM »
I live in Southern Ontario, Canada, I sell walnut, cherry, quarter cut white oak, etc . I totally enjoy the buisness and love buying logs from many different sources having them sawed and then taking them to a local kiln and having the lumber dried.
My kiln operator is a great guy, extremely knowlegeable, been drying for 40 + years, he is getting near hanging up the hat, So I am soon going to loose my #1 guy. His kiln is also 40 + years old and home built, likely the cats ass in its day in my parts but there are more efficient units these days.
Im doing some serious thoughts about getting a Nyle l-200, Im just wondering I sell alot of 2"x 20" + wide walnut and cherry, as well as 1/4 cut white oak, in 6/4 and sometimes 8/4,  will the Nyle dry these lumbers down to my required 8%.
Is everybody that has purchased one happy with its results, Im thinking if I do get one I would look at a reefer trailer as a chamber, please send all input that you can and any ideas, I will apprecitate all aswers. I have a limited budget but do want to do it right the first time.

I have never operated a DH kiln but I have certainly been around them. We have built control systems for them. I do believe they will dry what you want to do. Also, you can find one for sale here,46262.0.html
Horselogger could also give you some idea of how hard it may be to dry that quartersawn white oak.
