How the wood is dried

Vacuum drying of wood is carried out in 3 stages.

press, vacuum, drying, chamber, wood

  • Initial. Surface treatment of the timber is done here. Drying takes place by means of heating without vacuum. The temperature inside the chamber is adjusted individually to the type of wood and its thickness;
  • Drying. A special pump is used here to quickly evacuate air masses from the closed space. Thanks to this it is possible to evenly distribute moisture inside the wood fibers. Vacuum pump helps prevent deformation and cracking of the internal contents. Excess liquid evaporates quickly or is discharged through special channels;
  • Air Conditioning. In this case the boards start to cool evenly. In this way they manage to convey strength and endurance. The risk of deformation is reduced during the conditioning phases. After cooling down, carefully remove the lumber from the vacuum tank.

You can control the operability of the device with the help of special sensors and the control panel on the equipment case. In this way the performance of the boards is maintained.

Previously recommended to properly adjust the level of pressure, which will affect the condition of the wooden products. For example, to dry oak, which thickness is more than 30 mm, select a temperature of not less than 85 degrees.

Pressure volume should not be more than 520 kg per 1 sq. м. Drying saw-timbers from this timber will be for 30 days.

Vacuum drying chambers

Press-vacuum drying chambers provide rapid and high-quality drying of wood, eliminating the appearance of cracks, deformations and other defects. The optimal solution for drying beams, planks, slats, veneers and other wood products, including precious species. The wood is placed in layers between the heating plates made of extruded aluminum profiles. Inside the plates there are channels for the circulation of hot water, equipped with electrical resistances. The water pipes from each plate are connected to a manifold and that, in turn, to a heating circuit. The vacuum pump creates the vacuum inside the chamber and heats the lumber through the plates. Heating plates are in direct contact with the wood ensuring its rapid heating, which reduces the drying time by half compared to other vacuum drying chambers and by many times compared to convection chambers.


  • All parts of the chamber that are in contact with water (chamber housing, pipes, valves, condensers, vacuum pump, etc.).д.) made of stainless steel INOX AISI 304, ensuring many years of corrosion-free operation. chambers produced in the 1980’s are still in use.
  • CNC control system has no analogues! Preset programs for drying all types of wood. Due to the perfectly adjusted control and uniform distribution of pressure and temperature, each of the drying stages achieves record speed and quality indicators.
  • Remote control system (via Internet) of the current drying process, diagnostics of units and assemblies of the chamber, review of the drying history. all accessible from your smartphone or computer from anywhere in the world!
  • The unique cover membrane made of 100% silicone ensures many years of trouble-free operation, while vacuuming, generates a pressure of 9000 kg/m² on the stack and leads to plasticizing the wood, eliminating deformations.
  • Solid extruded aluminum heating plates.

All vacuum drying chambers are equipped with the unique CNC control system, which enables detailed setup and automation of the drying process. 40 programs for the most popular sorts of wood are preinstalled as standard. The system controls the humidity of the lumber, the environment, the internal vacuum as well as the functioning of all the auxiliary systems.

Vacuum dryer operation

Vacuum drying is divided into several phases. First the wood is loaded inside the chamber. In this process, the lumber is placed in layers between the aluminum heating plates. The drying parameters (temperature and pressure) are set by a specialist. This is necessary to work with different types of wood, after which the device can be turned on. The drying pressure is kept constant and the temperature can vary.

Please note! During the heating phase the normal pressure is used and the vacuum pump is switched off. This is necessary to prevent defects.

When the wood has reached the desired temperature, the vacuum pump is turned on. It removes air from the drying chamber, thus creating the right pressure. The moisture in the wood moves from the center to the outer layers. Since the material is moistened in this process, no additional means are required. Uniform moisture distribution saves the wood from spoiling.

Moisture that has come to the surface evaporates because of the high temperature and is deposited on the walls of the housing and pumped out.

The vacuum environment speeds up this process because evaporation already takes place at a temperature of 40 degrees. this would not happen with conventional pressure. The air surrounding the wood is never heated to more than 70 degrees Celsius. The upper rubber cover of the chamber is sucked in during evacuation and presses the boards, creating a kind of a press.

The final step is conditioning. It is not used until the wood has reached the correct humidity. The heating stops, but the vacuum pump stays on. The wood gradually cools down, while remaining under the press, which is necessary to prevent changes in the shape of the material. When the temperature has reached room temperature turn the pump off and take the wood out of the unit.

Press-vacuum drying chambers. principle and technology of work

Wood is used in the joinery and furniture industry in the following areas. It is an excellent natural material, which has no alternative, but in order to get a good quality product should be used for the production of the original high quality and most importantly. dry material. Raw, resinous wood is difficult to machine, such as milling, sanding, gluing, etc. If paint coatings are applied to raw, unprepared wood, they will be unstable and unaesthetic. Raw wood is also less durable than dry wood and is prone to warping and cracking. That is why wood must go through a certain preparatory process before treatment. drying.

How the press-vacuum drying works

Different types of wood lumber can be dried effectively with the help of a press-vacuum drying chamber made of stainless steel. Lumber is placed in layers inside the chamber, alternating with aluminum heating plates.

  • The chamber
  • Rubber. diaphragm
  • Frame
  • Rubber. seal
  • Lumber
  • Heating. Plates
  • Hoses
  • Water. pump
  • Heater
  • Thermal insulation
  • Vacuum pump

A water pump circulates the water inside the heating plates. Water is heated in a boiler located outside the chamber. The chamber is hermetically sealed with a lid. Tightness is created by a special silicone membrane, structurally provided and mounted on the lid of the chamber.

After the timber has been loaded, the chamber lid closes tightly and the liquid vacuum pump turns on to suck the air out of the chamber. When a vacuum is created, the silicone membrane presses the stack of lumber laid over with heated plates to the bottom of the chamber with a force of up to 10,000 kg/m2. Thus, the wood is heated and dried in a vacuum under the press.

The practical result of pressure drying is the reduction of deformations such as twisting or warping that often accompany other types of drying. At temperatures above 80°C the plasticization of the wood takes place. After the drying process the boards are absolutely straight and without warping or other distortions.

Depending on the type and thickness of the material, the appropriate drying temperature and cycles are chosen. The heating temperature and vacuum loading are designed so that the evaporated moisture does not create any concentrations or stresses that could cause the wood to crack. When observing the drying program the color of the timber does not change, which is important for valuable species of wood.

The compression of the package of boards and heating plates provides good contact with the heaters and a good heat exchange that increases the speed of drying of lumber to the desired condition (furniture humidity of 6. 8%). Increased drying speed reduces energy consumption, which consequently reduces the cost of production.

For the best quality drying, the material must be chosen as homogeneous as possible in size and humidity, considering the conditions of its storage. The press-vacuum drying chamber has the shortest drying cycle compared to other drying methods. So drying boards from pine with a thickness of 30 mm to a moisture level of 6% occurs in 12 hours. By comparison, traditional drying times for softwoods with gradual heating, blowing and cooling range from 10 to 20 days, depending on the final moisture content required and the intended use of the material.

The press-vacuum drying chamber helps to solve another important problem of fir, pine and other coniferous woods. Such a problem is the prolonged release of resin at temperature changes in already finished products, if they are made of material that has not been treated in the drying chamber under vacuum. Resinous compounds of wood consist of two main components.

Turpentine oil. is a volatile component, which evaporates in a vacuum at a temperature of about 80 ° C. The heavier fraction (rosin and other resins), which remains after turpentine evaporation, crystallizes at room temperature. Crystalline inclusions are no longer prominent on the wood surface and are not an obstacle for further processing of workpieces. Consequently, vacuum dried wood has many advantages that come into play when working with this type of wood.

Custom-made press-vacuum drying chamber, made of stainless steel, has a long service life and good corrosion protection. The use of drying chambers of this type provides significant savings of energy resources, reduces the cost of production at its high quality.
