Product description

Woodexpert dry kiln

Woodexpert dry kilns have highly insulating walls with rugged aluminum casing.

During the drying process acidic substances escape from the timber, so all components within the chambers are made of stainless steel or aluminum. The dry kilns are available with a volume of 20 m3 to 200 m3.

The CE certificate is standard.

CONTROL system

CONTROL system



For Woodexpert dry kilns two control systems are available,
DELPHI (standard) and dTOUCH
(extra charge 1.998 € netto)

:

DELPHI - LCD-based automatic kiln controller

The user interface, based on a LCD graphic display having a very good readability, allows an easy set-up also to not skilled users, because all setting are made through self-explaining menu and the access to most advanced settings is obtained only through addicted menus, divided from the ones most commonly used. To further improve the friendly interface of DELPHI, also for this model it has been adopted the iButton® system, an useful method, based on "intelligent buttons" that can be used to save and recall drying programs (in addition to internal memory), to protect the controller set-up against not authorized people and to upgrade the controller software. Having a drying program saved into an iButton, everybody can start a drying cycle, simply by laying the button on the addicted reader. The same solution can also be used to order to your assistance centre a drying program ready to use, without need to inputting it manually into the controller, or to transfer a program from a controller to another one. Obviously there are also many standard programs (over 80) ready to use for a lot of wood essences, recallable from an addicted menu, useful for users without particular needs or for beginners. DELPHI is supplied with LG25, the new probe amplifier of Logica H & S.

Thanks to a number of new solutions (among them measures with alternate voltage variable (VAV) with timber moisture, digital filter for mains supply noise rejection (MNR)), this device assures the maximum reliability together with the better external noise rejection. The amplifier comes in a sealed (IP65) aluminium case, and complete with wirings for the probe boxes inside the kiln made with shielded and Teflon® insulated cables. The probe boxes are made using polycarbonate hermetic cases, assuring a good protection against dust on their internal side, a problem than affects the measures of many competitive systems.DELPHI allows a very flexible management of the drying cycle, thanks to the drying phase that can be divided in up to 8 steps, with progressive transitions of the kiln climate from step to step. Every step can be defined by gradient, EMC value or duration. A so high flexibility allows Delphi to be used also for thermal treatment required by phytosanitary measures. DELPHI is based on KILN BUS system that makes it compatible with all the sensors/actuators for kiln dryers today available and to be developed in the next future, so it is suitable for future upgrades. In addition it comes with a serial interface (double standard - RS232 + RS485) useful to connect it to a master PC (using the WoodWizard 2 software). DELPHI controller is supplied split in two very small parts: the visualization module and the power module.

dTOUCH - a step ahead in wood drying

dTOUCH is a step ahead in the control systems for kiln dryers, since it combines an advanced and flexible control system with the know-how of international experts in the timber drying field. dTOUCH has been developed in cooperation with IVALSA, the Italian Research Institute, member of CNR, which includes a laboratory for research and tests about timber drying. In addition to all the functions already implemented in Delphi plus many other, dTOUCH includes a wide range of base drying programs for over 400 timber species, including also some special cycles to maintaining/changing the natural colour of the wood, for fast drying and so on.

dTOUCH uses this data base, together with the information received from the sensors and the inputs from the user (such as required quality, priority to time or to quality, particular requirements..) to create each time the program more suitable to drying the wood according to the specific needs of the user...

...because a spread library of drying programs is not enough: several are the possible requirements, and several must be the programs for satisfy them...

dTOUCH can automatically identify some critical conditions (like frozen wood, casehardened wood etc.) and modify the drying cycle in order to include the most suitable remedy for the identified problem. The creation of a customized program using dTOUCH does not more require the user to learn about drying methods and programming details (temperature, humidity, time, etc..); it is enough to "explain" to the system what are the special requirements by answering some simple questions and the system will create the most suitable cycle. dTOUCH is the drying expert always at your disposal.

dTOUCH – An evolving system

dTOUCH is a control system with a great potential, which is now just at the first stage of its development and which will be expanded in the next future.
By using the automatic upgrade function (available when connected to a PC running XYLON software) your dTOUCH system will take advantage of the continuous improvements that will be developed on this product, in a very easy and totally free way.
In addition to the advanced functions already available, other advanced functions are now under development, such as:

DRYING CYCLE EVALUATION
This function, especially useful in case of repeated drying cycles on material having homogeneous characteristics (specie, thickness and initial conditions), will be used to optimize the drying cycles according to the specific kiln characteristics and to the user specific requirements. At the end of the cycle, the user will have the opportunity to answer to a few questions to give an evaluation about the completed cycle; dTOUCH, the drying expert, will use this information to modify the current cycle then will save it for the next drying.

PROBLEMS SOLVING
An new function will be provided to inform the system about doubts regarding the drying in progress (such as long time, appearing defects etc.) through a guided procedure ("wizard") ; at the end of the procedure the system will automatically take the most suitable measures.

dTOUCH – The friendly expert

A big effort has been accomplished to provide dTOUCH with the best user-friendly interface. The system is based on a touch sensitive, colour LCD screen. Whenever possible, every function is identified by a icon, while the menu are available in several languages. All the selectable functions are identified by buttons or blue colour. With dTOUCH a single touch on the screen is enough to switch from the most complete automatic management to the simplest semi-automatic mode, without need for any programming.

dTOUCH – The flexible solution

Being based on "Kiln Bus" protocol, dTOUCH is compatible with all the most recent sensors and interfaces developed by LogicaH & S. The number of probes and their typology can be configured as required to satisfy whatever control need, including interfacing to non conventional sensor or sensors for special uses like ISPM15 compliant heat treatment.
