Vacuum kilns
« on: February 03, 2016, 11:28:38 AM »
Does anyone have any experience with vacuum kilns? We get conflicting stories on their efficiency rates for energy use and drying times vs. conventional kilns.
In addition, there seems to be advocates for continuous vacuum kilns and also for cyclic vacuum kilns. Does one have the advantage over the other in terms of efficiency or board feet capability?
