Ensuring lumber is equalized and conditioned properly during the drying process is vital in lumber manufacturing. Boards retaining too much moisture can cause gluing problems, warping in finished panels or stair stepping in panels. In addition, lumber that’s too dry can have the same issues, resulting in a damaged final product.

A high-pressure Cat Pumps water mist system is the most accurate, efficient way to properly condition lumber. Water is pumped through high-pressure atomizing nozzles resulting in a fine mist that is uniformly absorbed by the wood. An alternative to using high-pressure water mist is using steam from a boiler, but it’s very inefficient and makes the process more expensive.
