High-temperature heat pump for resinous timber drying.

Author(s) : MINEA V.


In order to reduce the duration of the drying cycles, to obtain a better quality of wood and to save energy, a small-scale high-temperature heat pump prototype was developed and laboratory tested. This paper summarizes the original features of this system as well as its main thermodynamic parameters and energy performance. The current research program aims at ensuring the maximum reliability of the product, developing strong Canadian design and manufacturing skills, and preparing the deployment of the product on the national wood drying market.
