The NDK-R platform supports the following control modes, empowering kiln operators to choose the ideal drying method for each species:
Conventional Mode: Controls temperature using a dry bulb and vents the kiln or adds moisture based on wet bulb readings.
Dump Cycle Mode: Repeats a time-based heat, dump, and rest cycle to reduce the moisture content from 15% to 8% or less.
Heat Treat Mode: Stops the kiln when a target temperature is reached and maintained for a set time.
DH Mode: Controls the kiln according to traditional DH operation, suitable for slow-drying hardwoods.
Hybrid Mode: Controls the kiln using traditional drying practices while using a dehumidifier, suitable for faster-drying species.
