The Steam Dryer

Fast pressure steaming and
drying at the same time

Special features and advantages of the procedure:

  • A saturated steam atmosphere can only be created in a tank. This
    ensures exact temperature distribution and colouring.
  • The high steam temperature in overpressure shortens the colouring
    process extremely. This saves a lot of time and energy.
  • The superheating and dehumidification of the steam atmosphere
    enables controlled drying during the steaming process and thus
    saves one work step.
  • Optimal thermal insulation saves a lot of energy at these high

Steam Drying Process

In the conventional steaming process, coniferous woods
require very long steaming times for obtaining the shade
of antique wood, three weeks as a rule. In addition to that,
specific and expensive heating systems are necessary for
steam production. After the steaming process, the wood
needs to be restacked and dried in a complex process.
The EBERL steam dryer was specifically developed for fast
and economic steaming and at the same time drying coniferous
wood. But also many types of hard wood obtain
really interesting colour shades.
