Stacking Sticks for High Temperature Kilns
Temperatures required to dry lumber in softwood mills can be extremely high – breaking conventional kiln sticks after every turn. Without a proven alternative, mills are forced to use wooden kiln sticks that break constantly and jam machines.
Introducing Tuff-Stik – The Perfect Stacker Sticks for Softwood Mills
Tuff-Stik™ is the only stacker stick that can handle high temperatures without any shape deformity. Made with aluminum alloy, Tuff-Stik™ provides a service life of 500 or more turns. A mill using Tuff-Stik™ as their primary drying stick will save hundreds of thousands of dollars in labor and operating costs over conventional sticks.
Investing in Tuff-Stik™ empowers managers to operate mills with fewer issues and hazards:
- Tuff-Stiks™ unique design allows air flow through the stick and seamlessly inside the stack, improving kiln efficiency;
- The grooved edges around Tuff-Stik™ give it better gripping power so that lumber is secured in place and stays straight during drying;
- Tuff-Stik™ is light, eliminates water staining and is 100% recyclable.
