AutoTreat III is a proprietary automated control system that uses the combination of an industrial computer and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) to interface with and control all aspects of treating and mixing plant operations.
This cutting-edge control system can be compared to systems such as an automotive assembly line, just on a smaller scale. It is designed and built to accommodate future expansion and is the ultimate tool in wood treating and mixing process control.
These tools help treaters streamline their operations by using their manpower more efficiently which leads to a higher, more efficient productivity output for the plant. This can be accomplished by using a wide variety of easy-to-use tools in the system to monitor and analyze plant operations, including easy-to-follow graphics, trending and reporting tools. The flexibility of the system allows operations to modify and adapt plant control by adding or changing recipes and set-points to maximize plant functionality.

Moldex® 45 at a concentration in the range 220 ppm to 250 ppm of active ingredient is recommended for the control of mold in copper-azole (Viance CA-B,CA-C, and Pack PT) treating solutions.
Stable Formulation containing:
2-n-octyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (45% by weight)
Appearance: Clear to slightly hazy liquid
Odor: Mild Specific gravity (20°C) 1.034
pH: (as supplied) 2.4
Viscosity: 40 cP
The active ingredient is not changed by short-term temperature stress during processing at up to 60°C. However, the product stability is affected by alkalinity and oxidizing agents in the treatment solution.
For best results, the treatment solution should be maintained at a pH of 8 or below; and the active level of MoldEX® 45 monitored and formulated as required to maintain the desired concentration.
Many factors such as temperature, air circulation, depth of penetration, moisture content, mildew and mold can affect the performance of the treatment. Therefore, the protection period can vary. Testing and experience from our technical experts will help you determine the solution for your treatment.
