Unlike kiln drying, air drying offers little control of the rate of drying and the final moisture content. With air drying, lumber is typically left on stickers in the yard until a moisture content of. developed a method for estimating air-drying times for red oak and yellow-poplar.

Air-drying samples were ex-posed to the environmental conditions of three commercial air-drying yards over a 5-month period. The daily rate of moisture loss was then related to meteo­ rological variables obtained from a re­ gional weather station.

Air dry 1-inch lumber 60 to 90 days, in a breezy, warm, not too humid place to reach 20% moisture. For interior use, however, lumber must be kiln dried to a moisture content of 7% to avoid splitting or warping in use.

The following procedures apply to drying in a solar. to estimate kiln drying time for any thickness of lumber. Step-wise and total kiln drying times of 4/4, 5/4, and 6/4 red oak lumber from initial moisture contents of 80, 50, and 30 percent (Table 1) illustrate the use of equation (2).

When hardwood lumber is to be stacked on kiln trucks for kiln drying or air drying (fig. 34), a forklift moves solid-piled packages from the green chain to the stacker. At sawmills where the hardwood lumber is stacked in hand-built piles for air drying, the lumber is solid-piled on dollies or carts at the green chain and pulled by tractor to.

In kiln drying of lumber, the moisture gradient is controlled so the wood will dry rapidly without developing serious defects.

ii) Accelerated air drying and pre-dryers Accelerated air-drying is.Most of the lumber was oak, and much of it was white oak purchased for the sides and bottoms of the cars used to transport coal from the mines* Some lumber was also used for aboveground buildings, brattices, air-control doors or shafts, scale plat- forms, and general repairs.
