The creosote treatment of railway sleepers.



The creosote treatment of railway sleepers.



Bol. Inst. Pesqu. Tec. S. Paulo. 41, 41



An investigation was made of possibilities of using woods of the type called "madeira branca" (i.e. with a large % of sapwood and poor natural durability) as steepers after preservative treatment. Sleepers of 93 different species from S.W. Sao Paulo were tested, using (1) creosote + tar 1/1, and (2) ditto 1/2, and the Rueping, Lowry, or full-cell process. With many species all three processes were tried, using different pressures.
