Kiln venting - WOODWEB
· This is a condenser kiln. The main problem is that it is difficult to achieve the very low MCs that you can get in a kiln with vents. Also, when lumber is soaking wet and dries quickly (so. pine, soft maple, yellow-poplar, etc.), the condenser kiln is slower than a vent kiln. My philosophy is "Why condense if you can vent?"
