After felling, timber will lose moisture to align itself with the atmospheric conditions. Moisture content should be lower than 20% to stop fungal attack. Seasoning is the name of the process where moisture content is reduced to the appropriate level for proposed use. Shrinkage will occur as a result of the moisture loss - typical 3-4% across the grain.

Sunco Machinery Wood Shavings Dryer can be used to drying all kinds of wood shavings. After being dried by our wood shavings dryer, the moisture content of wood shavings can be below 15%.
