Small drying kilns


Drying of all types and humidity of timber, smaller capacity.


  • Drying of all types and humidity of timber, smaller capacity
  • Chamber capacity from 12 to 25m3 per drying cycle
  • Working medium: hot water system 90 / 70oC (model NKS), electricity (model Nigolux), hot water system 90 / 70C for models K1 and K2
  • Standard dryer width: 4,5 m
  • Standard depth of dryer: 4,5 / 6,3 m
  • Stacking height: 2,2 / 3,2 m
  • Dryers can be constructed according to the customer’s request
  • Automatic control of the drying process via the MC-904, MC-504 or MC-600) automatic controllers installed for each dryer individually
  • Remote monitoring and control on a PC using Nigos DryerManager software, via RS485 standard

Depending on the available energy for heating, 3 models of dehumidifying and 2 models of conventional dryers can be installed:
Nigolux-12(20) – mini dehumidifying model.
Nigolux-12(20)K1- dehumidifying model with heater in the heat pump,
Nigolux-12(20) K2- dehumidifying model with standard hot water heaters

NKS-12 – conventional dryer without reversing
NKS-20/ rev – conventional dryer with reversing

Energy consumption is also mitigated by the use of wood waste or sawdust as a fuel for heating the boiler or heat pump (dehumidifying models).

With minimal energy consumption, very high quality and fast enough drying of all types of lamellas is achieved.

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

  • 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
  • Possibility of making a chamber from fabricated panels and external steel construction. This is a financially more favorable chamber model and is intended primarily for drying soft types of wood. This model is fitted with double doors
  • Heat exchangers made of stainless steel and bimetallic pipes stainless steel / aluminum 25/54 and inox tube instalation (models NKS and Nigolux-K2)
  • 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 diagonally
  • Possibility of installing equipment, doors and control systems in the customer’s masonry building
