Nitrogen Generation for Kiln / Grain Drying

Kiln / Grain Drying

Nitrogen (N2) is a key player in the success of kiln and grain drying.

Drying or processing grain is a proven method that helps to avoid spoilage during storage. In kiln drying, a chamber is used to circulate air and maintain exact temperature and relative humidity control. This manages the moisture content of, for example, wood to a specified moisture level so that the product is not exposed to defects. Additionally, the kiln drying process sets the wood’s pitch so that sap does not leak out later on.

The proportions of wood change with variations in relative humidity. This is where the kiln drying process becomes critical. Finished wood products cannot be machined or glued if the wood is above the acceptable moisture content. Drying both grain and kiln has other advantages, including weight reduction and resistance to unwanted biological degradation sources like fungi and insects.

Nitrogen Gas Generation Systems for Kiln/Grain Drying

Nitrogen gas generation is ideal for facilitating kiln and grain drying because nitrogen has a low dew point of -69° Fahrenheit. On Site Gas’ nitrogen generators support maximum production with just the right conditions. A continuous stream of dry N2 can be fed into the kiln or bin. The lower levels of oxygen (O2) in the nitrogen flow help stop the growth of harmful organics. It also significantly minimizes the threat of explosions.

On Site Gas is known for its state-of-the-art and dependable nitrogen generators. Our nitrogen generation systems provides you with a low operation cost and keeps pace with expanding your business as needed.
