DEVELOPMENT OF A KILN DRIED WOOD SYSTEM USING HEAT PUMP TECHNOLOGY


The CO2 heat pump has gained considerable attention because it is both
environmentally friendly and highly efficient during high temperature heating.Because of the high efficiency during high temperature heating, the heat pump can be applied as drying
equipment with humidity and temperature regulation functions.In this research,we developed a kiln dried wood heat pump system with humidity and temperature regulation functions. This paper reports on the outline, performance and economics of the dehumidifier system.
