SCSFP Sawmill Green Lumber Sorting System MCPro1500

Sawmill Green Lumber Sorting System

The transverse sawmill meter sorts pieces into four moisture groups with similar drying characteristics by assigning a dry-ability index number. This critical first step in end-to-end moisture control improves kiln performance by reducing aggregate standard deviation and total drying time when compared to unsorted loads.

Benefits

  • Increases kiln productivity by up to 15% and decreases moisture content variation after drying up to 2%
  • Maintains consistent sorting year-round – even with frozen wood
  • Capable of measuring boards at up to 250 lugs/min and passing sort decision to PLC
  • Painted loads allow for optimal kiln charges to be built by fork lift operators
  • Software monitors production for daily shift reports and
