Perfect condition High-Frequency Vacuum Kiln, only 5 cycles from new.


It is possible to dry most native UK timber species straight off the sawmill down to 8-11% MC in 8-16 days.
If the milled timber is Air-dried for 3-6 months then the Kiln drying process is reduced to 2-4 days to 8-11% MC for Softwoods and 6-12 days to 8-11% MC for Hardwoods up to 12” Thick and 1200mm wide. It is equipped with a hydraulic press that ensures the timber is kept perfectly flat during the drying process, this adjusts automatically throughout the process to maintain the same pressure. This method of drying produces the finished timber with almost zero defect/cracking etc as all the moisture is extracted through the end grain (As the living tree took on the water) and not the entire surface as in conventional kilns. 


No stickers are required as in conventional kilns, therefore the capacity of 4.4cbm is the actual amount of timber and not the chamber space as with conventional or standard vacuum kilns.

The costs are also considerably lower than conventional Kiln drying and much more eco-friendly.

For example a full load of mixed Air-dried timber of 4.4 cubic metres at 35% MC down to 8-10% MC would normally take 6-9 days and cost around £350-450 in electricity. 


New cost of this machine including shipping was £58,500.00
