Description

This Standard sets out procedures for specifying the moisture content and other drying quality criteria of seasoned solid wood products and is primarily intended for use by processors, merchants and users, to assess the drying quality of a pack, stack or charge of dry timber.

It describes drying quality classes and gives sampling methods for testing products to establish compliance.Other drying quality criteria such as checking, collapse and distortion are detailed in an appendix.

Scope

This Standard is for use with softwood or hardwood boards up to 80 mm in thickness, where the moisture contents of boards in a quantity exhibit a single skewed distribution. (At the end of drying there is usually variability in the between-board moisture content distribution with a longer tail above than below the most common moisture content value.)

Where such a single skewed distribution does not exist, then this Standard may be used, provided upper or upper and lower cut-off limits are set.
