Home > Treatment Process
Because we harvest from our own woodland we can offer our customers the service of sawing timber to unusual lengths in the woodland and then converting the logs within the mill. Our fencing centre includes some of the latest technology equipment to make the most of the harvested timbers. Purpose designed debarking machinery ensures clean timber rounds ready for processing into a wide range of fencing products. Timbers can be machined to precise specifications through our fully automated laser guided installation, supported by more traditional band saws, ensuring the most productive and efficient use of the timber.
The Tanalith E Treatment Process
Timber is loaded into the treatment vessel and a vacuum is applied evacuating the timber cells of air.
The vessel is flooded under vacuum with Tanalith E wood preservative.
Hydraulic pressure is applied and the treatment time is varied depending upon the end use of the timbers being treated.
A final vacuum extracts excess preservative solution which is then safely pumped into storage.
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.
