What Are Dip Tanks?

You need a way to treat a large bundle of lumber at once, but spraying your bundle can cause a mess. An alternative is to purchase larger autoclaves, but why would you when a dip tank allows you to treat your entire bundle at once? While an even treatment will make your wood look more appealing, it also grants it greater protection from decay, extending its service life.

Dip tanks can vary in size depending on your needs, but they all function in virtually the same way. Hoists are used to load wood into the dip tank, where the wood is imbued with the chemicals and preservatives needed to preserve it for as long as needed. This gives the chemicals time to soak through the wood, leaving it with a finish you can count on. Once removed from the tanks, the materials are either sitting, allowing for drip-off, or are conveyed onward to a tilting drip-off section. Once ready, the stacks are conveyed to the off-loading section, which may be controlled remotely by the forklift operator.

Clean. Safe. Efficient.

Spray Systems

One of the most common alternatives to dip tanks are spray systems. Rather than dipping the wood in a tank full of treatment, it’s sprayed directly onto the wood. If you think this might be a better solution for your wood treatment needs, we’re happy to offer various spray systems as well, available in either stainless or cold steel.
