Vacuum Drying Kiln to Wood Technology Center of Excellence

(ANTIGO, Wis.) – A new cutting-edge kiln has been added to Northcentral Technical College’s (NTC) Wood Technology Center of Excellence in Antigo. NTC partnered with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Great Lakes Kiln Drying Association to procure the equipment through grant funds. The VacuPress Technology dry kiln will be used to dry wood more quickly than a conventional drying technique.
