Product Description

The innovative KilnScout-Softwood system provides the industry’s leading wireless kiln moisture meter for batch and continuous kilns. Using capacitive measurement technology, KilnScout-Softwood allows your operation to control the drying process from direct moisture content input. This eliminates the costly feedback loop from the planer mill and unreliable time-based drying schedules. The result is improved grade recovery, increased throughput and a significant impact on your bottom line.

Features:

  • Real-time moisture and temperature readings
  • Scalable from 1-100 sensors, per hub, that can be placed in one kiln or split between multiple kilns if they are in wireless range
  • 17 cubic feet of measurement per sensing point
  • Customized email and text alerts on moisture temperature, shutdown, etc.
  • Advanced monitoring and reporting software, such as viewing remotely
