The Tanalith E Treatment Process

Step 1

Step 1 Timber is loaded into the treatment vessel and a vacuum is applied evacuating the timber cells of air.

Step 3

Step 3 Hydraulic pressure is applied and the treatment time is varied depending upon the end use of the timbers being treated.

Step 4

Step 4 A final vacuum extracts excess preservative solution which is then safely pumped into storage.

Step 5

Step 5 Low pressure inside the timber draws in surface preservative solution when the vessel is vented to atmosphere. The treated timber is left to dry and the highly effective preservative becomes locked within the timber cells.
