Abstract or Summary
  • Literature reports have indicated that application of sonic pressure waves enhances the rate of impregnation of preservatives in wood. However, these studies have been limited and inconclusive. The technique or process is not in commercial use. In this study a laboratory scale treating cylinder connected to a mechanical sonic wave generator was used to measure the rate of impregnation of water in ponderosa pine at pressures of 0.28, 0.55 and 0.69 MPa and Douglas-fir at pressures of 0.55 and 0.69 MPa at a frequency of 30 Hz. Results were compared with those obtained at the same conditions of static hydraulic pressure. Statistical analysis showed that sonic treatments were at least as effective as, but not consistently superior to, hydraulic pressure treatments in the case of ponderosa pine. Statistical analysis of the results from Douglas-fir treatment showed that sonic treatment was superior than hydraulic treatment.
