Wagner Sensor Sorts Bug-Kill Lumber
Prompted by the mountain pine beetle infestation in BC and the western US, Wagner Electronics has improved its random width sensor design. The new Model 218 moisture meter sensor helps sort bug kill or otherwise dry lumber from green lumber prior to kiln drying, thus avoiding the degrade and over-dry conditions that result when bug kill lumber is kiln dried. The narrow field sensor is used for sideways/random width lumber applications and can provide significant cost benefits and grade recovery improvements, the company says.
