Generation-4 solarola cyclic kiln, Melbourne Australia
Solarkilns has commercially owned and operated its own kilns for long periods during its Research and Development phase of 15 years to test and prove the capabilities of our kilns you see today. This hands on approach has provided many benifits in the development of this technology based on real life experience.
It was evedent very early on in the development of the kiln that our superior collection and insulation systems produced exceptionally large and consistent amounts of heat energy input into the kiln from the sun. To prove the benifits it was around the mid-phase of our development (2005’06) we used unparalleled data capture facilities and the resulting analysis enabled us to fine tune the control system operation developing our "Cyclic" drying methods to work in harmony with the natural daily cycles.
The following novel and mostly patented controller features are some of the many controller characteristics that clearly distinguish Solarkilns from other inferior systems. This explains why Solarkilns technology delivers superior results in many locations. Generally speaking, Solarkilns technology “makes more from less!”
-More products from less inputs, more energy absorbed from the sun and converted to hot air.
Solarkilns energy management features combine with important and often discreet elements of the kiln design to better control the variable climate and solar energy conditions so that risk of degradation and fungal attack in many products from timber to dried foods and herbs is greatly minimised.
All or most of the following unique features are included in all of our controller types including cyclitrol.
