Australian Hardwood Drying Best Practice Manual Part 1

Australian Hardwood Drying Best Practice Manual Part 1

This manual is a set of operations established and conducted to achieve high grade results in product quality and recovery, flexibility, innovation, cost, and competitiveness, through the cooperation of management and employees in all key aspects of the process.

It outlines economic and feasible technologies for increasing recovery and reducing avoidable loss during processing from the log to the finished board; and mechanisms that allow production value to be optimised in mills of disparate size.
