SmarTally® Moisture Edition:

Monitor and analyze your kiln efficiency with SmarTally® Moisture Edition

SmarTally® Moisture Edition is a database driven analysis and reporting package. It provides a feedback loop showing you the moisture content of the wood after a specified number of hours of drying. This feedback loop allows you to tune the kiln settings to produce a consistent lumber dryness every time.

Running Hot Wood
Hot wood must cool in the yard for at least eight hours before going into the planer. If it isn't allowed this time to dry, it is falsely read as wet by the moisture meter and bends excessively during MSR testing. This produces a grade lower than it actually is resulting in lost profits.

SmarTally® Moisture Edition collects the necessary information that helps prevent this. When hot wood is detected entering the planer the bundle is flagged and you are alerted before the entire charge is run.

Detecting hot wood and preventing it from entering the planer is key to reducing lost profits, and SmarTally® Moisture Edition helps you do it.
