Kurekss invests into a new TC continuous kiln at its production site in Latvia. According to the announcement, the company placed an order with Valutec for the stainless steel made kiln with six zones and a capacity of over 50,000 cubic metres for mixed dimensions. The equipment will be delivered over the course of the autumn and will be operational towards the end of 2017.
The company plans to mainly use the kiln to dry planks of between 19 mm and 25 mm.
The scope of the equipment supplier also includes a heat recovery system, pressure frames and the Valmatics control system.
The company is a privately-owned sawmill in western Latvia that was founded in 1995. A large part of the company’s production is customer-specific and in various dimensions.
