Veneer Drying Line R3 – The easy to install and operate standard

The Veneer Drying Line R3 is your choice when you are starting the industrial veneer drying and you don’t need high automation. The line is capable to handle hardwood and softwood when producing veneer sheets.  It is easily installed just on flat floor on rails giving significant savings since no special foundations are needed.

Industrial veneer drying means 80% less operators for the job yet more efficient production. The dryer handles full-sized veneer sheets giving 15% more yield compared to natural drying processes. The line’s capacity is 16 veneer sheets per minute with a short drying time. The R3 dries the sheets always to the optimal 8–12% moisture level.   

Standard gray scale veneer visual and moisture analyzers can be installed to the line.  

Also the R3-series dryer has 6 decks giving an advantage of needing 30% less floor space than a traditional 4-deck dryer. Its completely insulated shell not only saves in heating energy, but gives even drying fron the top to bottom decks.
