       The MF2 and MF4 are rugged, reliable wood drying
      systems designed for the larger wood retailer or
     sawmill needing regular supplies of thoroughly dried
    wood with minimal delay. The units can be installed
   singularly or in multiples to provide drying capacity to
   match any need.


 The rigid tough frames are designed to cope with drying
chamber conditions. Specially treated heat exchangers
are used to prevent corrosion when drying species
containing concentrations of acids, notably Oak.
