KATview (Kiln Analysis and Trending) software allows your mill to move to a new level of performance in kiln drying.
KATview uses trending and color mapping to give you the powerful tools to truly analyze how your kilns are drying. Use color mapping to identify hot and cold spots in your kilns. The trending feature allows you to look at moisture content and standard deviation trends in your kiln charges over time. What kilns are drying the most uniformly? Are you having a trap or coil problem? Is there too much non-uniformity within the kiln from top-to-bottom, side-to-side, or end-to-end?
Product Run Reports
KATview also allows you to track the moisture content data over time of your different lumber products. Are your 2x4’s generally coming in over dry? Is your moisture content spread too great? Compare your moisture averages to your grade-out and determine the impact of high or low moisture content on your bottom line.
