Dehumidification kiln choice8/13
Good morning to all. I'm finishing up a kiln chamber and was looking for advice on purchasing a dehumidification unit. The inside of the chamber is 13' wide by 11 deep and 10' tall. I get short logs so I'll be stacking skids side by side. I also get soft wood logs so I need to dry hard and soft woods. Nyle is a very popular name but I also see EBAC and a used Hitachi. Any thoughts? Pros? Cons? Looks like the EBAC is cheaper but are they equal?
Thanks in advance.
I am a little biased because I started Nyle in 1977 and sold the business some time ago and retired last Fall. They provide support that you will never see from the others. As for quality and ability to do the job, I believe Nyle is your best choice. I think you will hear from others who are not so biased as me but they will generally agree, I think.
I agree with Don. I started using Nyle kilns in 1989. They answered every question I ever had, which were many, over the phone. They basically taught me how to dry lumber over the phone.
With side by side skids you may need reversing fans.
Another advantage of NYLE is that there are hundreds of people that can tell you how their unit works on a certain species, special things that they have learned, things to watch out for, etc.
Thank you for the info. My Nyle 200m is on its way. Excited to get started.
