The control system of JARTEK proved to be effective again
Once again, Jartek Invest Oy has successfully modernized the control system of several drying kilns. This time, the target was compartment kilns with traverse cars at Tiaisen Saha Oy, a customer located in Finland. The task was not effortless, since the drying kilns were provided with technology from different suppliers.
The delivery was based on Jartek’s own control system called Wintek. Wintek is a unique control system specifically developed for wood drying kilns, which makes it the best available system in the market. All the drying kilns we have delivered are operated by Wintek. Lately, we have focused on developing that control system even further - with successful results.
Besides the Wintek system, the customer received new Siemens S7 logics with memory amplifier and distributed I/O systems as well as new sensors with required changes. Once again, Jartek included all the assembly work to the delivery and modified everything to meet the needs of the customer. This way we can assure that the investment is as easy as possible to the customer.
The aim of this investment was to improve the reliability and predictability of the drying process due to improvements in process control and monitoring. We are proud to say that the aim was completed! The process control, monitoring, evaluation of the results and predictability have now reached a whole new level. Also, it is now possible to remote monitor the process which eases the work of drying kiln operators.
We are truly thankful to our customer, Tiaisen Saha Oy, for this opportunity. They have excellent knowledge about wood and wood drying based on the experience over numerous decades. Therefore, the commissioning of the equipment was fluent and results in an increase in the drying capacity.
Jartek will constantly keep developing the control system to improve it even further and more effective than it already is. No less, than staying the market leader of automation systems for drying kilns, is enough for us!
