A Rubland rubber smoke house consists of a chamber into which the sheets are loaded on removable reapers placed on a wooden framework. Smoke is generated in the Rublands special furnace, which is usually outside the chamber. Smoke and hot air from the furnace are directed into the chamber through a flue. Air inlets and ventilators are provided at the bottom and top of the chamber respectively. Rublands special smoke flue avoids direct contact of fire inside the smoking chamber . Temperature can also be regulated by adjusting the rate of burning of the firewood by opening or closing the air inlets in the furnace door
The chamber is of brickwork with a reinforced concrete frame. The smoke house is provided with adequate drainage to facilitate removal of serum dripping from the sheets. The roof and the ceiling may be of asbestos sheets and the gap between the roof and the ceiling at the top of the walls shall be closed from all the four sides of the smoke house, so as to avoid heat loss due to air currents over the ceiling and to prevent condensed moisture containing carbon from dripping on sheets.Rubland rubber smoke houses are of four types, those in which the number of rubber sheets that can accommodate are 180, 300,380,1650 respectively
Generaly,the sheets are turned on the reapers every day for uniform smoking and drying and to avoid reaper marks on dry sheets. Three days of smoking is generally sufficient under normal conditions, but during the rainy season four to five days are required for satisfactory drying of sheets
