Pan Pac’s German-made state-of-the-art thermally modified timber kiln is back in business at their Whirinaki Mill.
The kiln was installed to produce innovative products, such as the Elements Vulcan+ Hector Cladding. However, it was found to exceed guidelines for emissions. Upon discovery, production was immediately stopped so necessary modifications made.
Pan Pac then worked with the kiln supplier and technicians to overcome engineering issues identified in the kiln’s initial months of operation.
New parts were brought in from Germany and the next generation kiln underwent rigorous testing before being fully commissioned.
