  1. 1. PRESENTED BY SCOTT MILLER PHD CANDIDATEPRIMARY RESEARCHER JIM RIFFEL, MASTERS CANDIDATELAKEHEAD UNIVERSITY WOOD SCIENCE TESTING FACILITY
  2. 2. Goal The broad goal is to identify new market opportunities for the region’s under utilized wood species. The purpose of this study is to assess whether wood treated using the ThermoForest Products Eco Dryer system produces the same changes in wood characteristics exhibited in other high temperature kiln systems.

  22. 22. • STABILITY – THE RESULTS SHOW THAT THE THERMOFOREST PRODUCTS’ STABILITY TREATMENT PRODUCED STABILITY WITH NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO WOOD PROPERTIES. – THE STABILITY TREATMENT PRODUCED AN INCREASE IN MOST MECHANICAL PROPERTIES, A SLIGHT COLOUR CHANGE, AND SUPERIOR PROCESSING PROPERTIES.• DURABILITY – THE RESULTS SHOW THAT THE THERMOFOREST PRODUCTS’ DURABILITY TREATMENT PRODUCED STABLE AND DURABLE WOOD WITH A SLIGHT REDUCTION IN WOOD PROPERTIES. – THE DURABILITY TREATMENT PRODUCED AN INCREASE IN WOOD DENSITY, MOE AND COMPRESSION WITH A SLIGHT DECREASE FROM CONTROL IN HARDNESS AND MOR. – THE EFFECTS THE SYSTEM HAD ON MECHANICAL PROPERTIES FOR THIS TREATMENT IS SUPERIOR TO OTHER HIGH TEMPERATURE DRYING SYSTEMS. – THE DURABILITY TREATMENT ALSO GREATLY ENHANCED THE NEUTRAL COLOUR OF THE BLACK ASH CREATING A WALNUT LIKE RING POROUS FINISH.
  23. 23. • THERMOFORERST PRODUCTS’ HIGH TEMPERATURE ECO DRYER PROVIDES NORTH WESTERN ONTARIO AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WOOD TREATMENT, WHICH INCREASES THE STABILITY AND DURABILITY OF BLACK ASH; WITH MINIMAL LOSS TO WOOD PROPERTIES.• FURTHER TESTING WITH OTHER WOOD SPECIES IS REQUIRED TO VALIDATE THE POTENTIAL OF THIS VALUE-ADDED DRYING SYSTEM.• IT SEEMS EVIDENT THAT TARGET CHANGES TO MECHANICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES, ESPECIALLY COLOUR, CAN BE PREDICTED USING SPECIFIC TREATMENT PARAMETERS; INCLUDING TEMPERATURE AND DURATION.
