Batch Kilns

We have a range of batch kilns designed specifically for drying softwoods.

Design options include for direct fired or indirect heating using steam, HPHW or thermal oil. We offer both single track and double and in all cases from conventional drying temperatures to ultrahigh drying temperatures.

Not all timber drying situations and needs are the same, so we offer solutions to suit your needs and budget.

Windsor Pioneer Kilns

Our Pioneer Kilns are designed specifically for drying softwoods. The Pioneer offers almost unlimited design flexibility.
  • High Performance: Our kiln will deliver maximum throughput for minimum operating costs
  • Performance guarantees: We offer a range of performance guarantees to suit each specification
  • In-kiln Steaming: We offer either in-kiln conditioning systems or stand-alone conditioning chambers. The latter option will increase throughput dramatically, particularly on HT drying operations
  • Single Track/Double Track Options: We can offer both single and double track kilns. However our experience shows that single track kilns provide better drying results due to the uniform temperature distribution.
  • Noise: Noise emissions from kilns must be minimised on some sites. We offer a special 'Q' range of kilns designed to reduce the acoustical emissions to meet statutory requirements.
  • Direct/Indirectly heated Kilns: Our experience clearly shows that indirectly heated kilns are more effective in producing quality lumber although a small number of direct gas-fired Windsor kilns are operating very successfully in New Zealand and Australia.
  • Training, Service and Support: Our experienced Service Department and established engineering facilities enable us to provide a back-up service which is second to none.
