AH-188, AGRICULTURAL HANDBOOK: DRY KILN OPERATOR'S MANUAL (AUG 1991)., The purpose of this manual is to describe both the basic and practical aspects of kiln drying lumber. The manual is intended for several types of audiences. First and foremost, it is a practical guide for the kiln operator-a reference manual to turn to when questions arise. It is also intended for mill managers, so that they can see the importance and complexity of lumber drying and thus be able to offer kiln operators the support they need to do their job well. Finally, the manual is intended as a classroom text-either for a short course on lumber drying or for the wood technology curriculum in universities or technical colleges. This manual is a revision of the 1961 edition by Edmund F. Rasmussen. Forest Service staff who contributed to that original edition were Raymond C. Rietz, Edward C. Peck, John M. McMillen, Harvey H. Smith, and A.C. Knauss. It is a credit to these men that the 1961 edition has been in wide use and demand for the past 28 years. It is also to their credit that even though the manual is out of date in many parts, we were able to use the basic framework of the original edition to build on.
