Log Yard Irrigation
Another example of how Gra-Mac has used irrigation solutions to improve an operation is the application of water through Rain Bird Sprinklers or Nelson Guns on stacks of logs prior to their being sawed into lumber. If you are looking for an efficient way to maintain moisture at a log yard, large-scale sprinklers and irrigation guns is a great way to do so.
Maintaining Moisture In Logs
By maintaining the moisture in the saw logs, there is less breaking and splitting of the log, and thus more useable board feet of lumber are made with less waste. The saw equipment also benefits from the consistent moisture present in the logs by being able to make more uniform cuts since there is an absence of dry sections. These systems can consist of portable A & M couples aluminum pipe between the stacks of logs or buried PVC pipe with gun risers.
Where mulch and compost material is processed and stored, irrigation plays an active role in maintaining moisture in the material, eliminating the blowing of dust particles and keeping the temperature of the material in a proper range.
With any of these situations, Gra-Mac Distributing Company can design the layout and help you select the proper irrigation equipment for your location.
