Drying the wood is to remove the free water from the wood so that its moisture content is not lower than its saturation point of the fibers. Several drying modes are known:
- Natural drying
- Artificial drying
The dryer model exploited at MIPROMALO allows wood craftsmen to solve biological problems caused by fungi and to avoid shrinkage or deformation due to the gradual loss of water contained in the wood.
Materials: Polyane paper, wood and aluminum sheet painted black, fan, moisture meter.
Treatment: Humidity reduction from 33% to 15% in almost 6 weeks
