Wood Drying

Wood manufacturers prefer to pre-finish their boards prior to installation. This allows for a more consistent, uniform coating and is mandated by paint manufacturers to offer an extended warranty. Our wood drying system can process panels of wood or cement board up to 4 by 8 feet, or long boards up to 8 inches wide and 24 feet long. The boards are manually loaded onto a powered-roller conveyor that will carry them through a coater at speeds of 50 to 200 feet per minute, before being loaded sideways to travel through the drying oven. Wood coating applications are commonly used for siding, backer board, trim, and molding. Both prime and top coats are applied and dried using this technology. Wisconsin Oven offers cost effective conveyorized wood drying ovens that provide high performance and reliable operation.
