Drying management article #1
« on: May 16, 2014, 11:28:44 AM »
I am passionate about timber drying and currently busy with research towards obtaining my Masters degree in Wood technology - specializing on Eucalyptus drying. I work as a drying and automation consultant, and also run my own micro sawing and drying operation / working laboratory where I saw and dry out ± 12500 board feet / 30 m3 of Eucalyptus saligna per month with a narrow band mill and self developed hybrid solar kiln....from live tree to 12% MC in under 10 days.

I hold a Bachelors degree in Wood technology from the Nelson Mandela Metro University - RSA, an Advanced diploma in Industrial automation - EIT Australia and am a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer.

Enjoy the articles, though based on my view of the South African scenario, it could make for interesting reading ..any comments welcome, positive or negative!
