Description: Silver maple, yellow poplar, and black walnut lumber was dried in a prototype jet dryer over a range of temperatures from 120 degrees to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and air velocities from 1,000 to 9,000 fpm. Different drying schedules were developed for each type of wood. The quality of the jet-dried lumber was good and compared favorably with kiln-dried lumber.
Keywords: silver maple, yellow poplar, black walnut, Liriodendron tulipifera, Acer saccharinum, Juglans nigra, degrade, high temperature, humidity
