The autoclave is manufactured in high quality stainless steel and is equipped with side walls (baffles) that reduce the amount of fluid to be pumped in and out of the plant.
The plant consists of two or more storage tanks with an automatic shift between impregnation hazard class 3 and 4 or between green and brown impregnation solution.
The plant is also equipped with a powerful filling and emptying pump that enables the plant to operate under The Lowry process – a process without the initial vacuum phase which reduces the uptake amount from 300 to 150 L/m³.
Key advantages of the WTT full-automatic impregnation:
The wood pallets are placed on the loading track.
The loading and unloading area.
The wood data provides the basis for selecting the impregnation program.

The transport wagon brings the wood inside the treatment area and…
…transports it to the autoclave, where the door opens automatically.
The finished impregnated wood is ready to leave the autoclave.
The impregnated pallets are pulled out by the coupling trolley.
In the fixation and drip-off area, the wood pallets are tilted to 5°.
The impregnation process continues with bringing in next pallets of untreated wood.
Automatic clamp for the wood packets.
Full-automatic door opening with safety closure device.
The hydraulic tilting of the plant ensures optimum dripping of the remaining impregnation solvent.
