Drying kilns for pallets

with sterilization equipment according to ISPM-15

According to the ISPM-15 standard, all “eur” pallets must be thermally treated. The procedure involves heating the pallet to 56C and holding it at that temperature for 30min. In NIGOS chambers, in addition to this procedure, it is possible to dry these pallets to the final humidity according to the customer’s request.


  • Drying kilns for pallets are used for drying and thermal treatment of pallets as well as all types of wood elements
  • Chamber capacity of 200-3,500 pallets per drying cycle
  • Installed equipment for thermal treatment of pallets according to the ISPM-15 standard
  • Working medium: hot water system 90 / 70oC (max 120C) or steam 2.5 bar
  • Standard dryer width: 4,6/ 6,6 / 8,6 / 10,6 / 13,0 m
  • Standard depth of dryer: 4,5/ 6,3 / 7,0 m
  • Stacking height: 2,4 / 3,2 / 4,1 m
  • Dryers can be constructed according to the customer’s request
  • Automatic control of the drying process via the MC-2000 or MC-504 automatic controllers installed for each dryer individually and controller for thermal treatment MKS-05
  • Remote monitoring and control on a PC using Nigos DryerManager software, via RS485 standard

All our drying kilns include: highly insulated aluminum construction, reversible heating and ventilation technology, maximum quality and drying performance, environmentally friendly solutions and energy efficiency.

Energy consumption is also mitigated by the use of wood waste or sawdust as a fuel for heating the boiler, so this type of drying kiln is recommended to customers who have at their disposal a boiler or wood waste in significant quantities.

Drying kilns for pallets perform thermal treatment of pallets, but at the same time drying the timber to the desired moisture.

“NIGOS – electronic” gives its customers 3 years warranty for whole kiln, and 5 years for the automatic control unit.

PALETE scheme


  • Complete construction of solid aluminum profiles allows high roof loads (up to 250kg / m2 of snow) and resistance of the drying kiln to wind gusts of 150km / h
  • Drying kiln walls made of aluminum cassettes, connected with stainless steel screws and silicone of high resistance to temperature and acid from wood
  • Insulation of hard pressed wool 10 cm thick
  • Exterior facade of sinusoidal aluminum sheets
  • Aluminum subceiling allows even circulation through all layers
  • Heat exchangers made of stainless steel and bimetallic pipes stainless steel / aluminum 25/54
  • Reversible fans with high efficiency (H-class motors)
  • Energy saving by changing the fan speed, via frequency inverters for each fan separately
  • Servo flaps mounted on the roof front side and on the back wall of the dryer
  • Possibility of installing equipment, doors and control systems in the customer’s masonry building
