The L200 is a compact, high-performance dry kiln system. It will dry up to 4000 board feet of 4/4 green oak in approximately 4-5 weeks. It will dry 1500 to 2500 board feet of green softwood in about 1-2 weeks.

L200 units include auxiliary heating, two ¼ hp circulating fans, prewired electric panel, powered vent kits and operating manual. That’s everything you need to get started except for the chamber itself and we will provide the plans for the chamber.

The operating temperature range for the L200 is between 70ºF and 120ºF (21ºC – 49ºC) during the drying process. You can set pitch or sterilize with the included auxiliary heater. Additional fans are available.


The L200 is built to last. Extra heavy duty coils are coated to Nyle specifications to prevent them from corrosion. Over three decades of experience have shown us how to achieve the longest life. Our two fans provide circulation to assure even drying. The chassis is 100% corrosion resistant aluminum and our remote controller has been proven in thousands of applications.


Everything in a Nyle dehumidification unit can be replaced. This is not a disposable product. We know that people run even our smaller units well into their second decade and we build them to last. In addition, we offer technical assistance over the phone. The people who build our machines handle service calls so you get the straight talk when you need it.

There are two control systems available with the L200

L200S Standard Control System.

The traditional L200 has a precise controller which requires just a few minutes of daily monitoring. Controls include a thermostat with remote sensor and compressor timer. This system has been proven in thousands of installations since 1984. The temperature control turns the supplemental heat on and off as needed. It displays both the set point and the actual kiln temperature. The humidity is managed by using a wet bulb sensor and controls the operation of the compressor. This is a simple reliable, time-tested system.

L200M Temperature and Wet Bulb with Wood Moisture Probes.

The temperature and humidity are controlled by the wet bulb and dry bulb sensors. The temperature control turns the supplemental heat on and off as needed. Wet bulb is the most accurate way to measure humidity and it controls the operation of the compressor. In addition, this controller provides 4 digital readouts of wood moisture content. The system can be set to shut down when all four probes read the target moisture content. This system provides a level of control for thousands less than the cost just a few years ago.
