Can you burn tanalised wood on your fire?
Tantalized wood is industrially treated with the tanalith preservative. Tanalith treated wood is highly toxic and should not be burned in open fires or in homes. The chemicals released in the smoke and concentrated in the ashes is toxic and causes a variety of flu-like symptoms that vary depending on the severity of exposure.

Its a chemical reaction
'TANALISED' timber has been impregnated with a preservative solution under high vacuum pressure in an industrial vessel. This treatment process ensures deep penetration …into the timber cells, for a longer-lasting protective result against fungal decay and insect attack than the application of a surface coating. Pressure-treated timber is leach resistant, ensuring a long and trouble-free service life in a wide range of conditions, and assured performance in sensitive environments such as vegetable plots and areas of wildlife. Desired service lives range from 60 years for internal timbers and 30 years for external timbers such as fence posts in ground contact. The treated timber initially assumes a green colouration, which fades to a honey brown over time and eventually a silver grey. No surface applied product is needed to maintain the integrity of the treatment. Timber treatments are specified in line with BS8417, in order to ensure that an appropriate level is given according to the end use of the timber. The Use Class system is an indicator as to how the timber should be treated in order to match its end use. In the UK, 'TANALITH E' is the latest generative preservative, utilising a copper azole formulation which incorporates biocides that are also used to protect food crops. 'TANALISED', and 'TANALITH' (the preservative) are both internationally registered trade marks of the preservative manufacturer, Arch Timber Protection. These brands have been established since the 1940s, and are a key signature of treatment quality. An alternative to high-pressure treatments is VACSOL, which is a product applied under low pressure to create an envelope seal of protection. VACSOL Aqua is a water-based formulation, commonly used in the UK and across parts of Europe, and can impart a 60 year desired service life against fungal decay and insect attack for constructional timbers.

Tanalised timber refers to wood that has been industrially treated using a controlled vacuum pressure process with Tanalith preservative. Tanalised and Tanalith are registered… trade marks of Arch Timber Protection, and may not be used to describe other formulations. Tanalith C preservative contains chromated copper arsenate (CCA). In Europe, the use of Tanalised C pressure treated timber was restricted in 2006, and its replacement there is Tanalised E pressure treated timber, which contains copper and triazole biocides - which are commonly used to protect food crops. The options for disposal of Tanalised wood are dependent on the formulation of Tanalith preservative that the timber was treated with, which can be identified by analysis. The Code of Practice in Related Links gives recommended advice on how treated timber can be disposed of effectively. Tanalised E may be burned in approved industrial incinerators, but should not be burned in open fires or home wood burners. Please see the Related Link for more detailed information. When burned, Tanalised C or CCA treated timber releases toxic chemicals into the air and concentrates them in the ash. The treatment of this timber may incorporate Copper, Chrome and Arsenic. These can all be classed as heavy metal toxins. Symptoms will vary depending on the degree of poisoning but can include: loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, skin tingling, cramping of muscles, seizures, hearing loss, sleepiness, confusion, headaches, fainting, dizziness.

Timber treated with any Tanalith preservative is resistant to leaching but should be handled with care and any exposed skin is recommended to be washed before eating, drinking or going to the toilet. Avoid handling treated timber that is wet. See the Related links for more information.
Not really. Burning a hot fire keeps creosote hot enough that it does not condense in the chminey, and burning hardwood low in creosote helps.
Yes. Wood is a type A fire.
Tanalised is a term used in Europe for wood that has been treated to resist rot and insects. In the US it is known as CCA, after the metals used in treating the wood- Chrome, …Copper, and Arsenic. This wood has been withdrawn from consumer contact applications- like handrails, surface deck boards, etc, due to concerns about arsenic leaching out of the wood. Wood treated with arsenic should NOT be burned due to health hazards, and safety measures should be taken to avoid breathing dust if sand, sawing or routing treated lumber.
TANALISED timber relates to timber that has been industrially treated with TANALITH preservative under vacuum in an enclosed treatment vessel. The preservative man…ufacturer, Arch Timber Protection, has a website at www.archtp.com with a Consumer Information Sheet which contains advice regarding compatible glues for TANALISED E pressure treated timber. A range of glues are advised, depending on the end use of the treated timber.
The best way to make a fire burn hotter is to use the hottest burning logs that you can. Oak, Ash and Black Locust burn very hot. Feed them into the fire along with fast burni…ng wood such as Maple to keep the fire raging. If you do not burn a fast burning wood with the Oak and Ash, they will burn very hot, but very slowly. The object is to make as many red hot coals from the Oak and Ash at the base of the fire as possible. That is where the heat from your fire will come from and the more coals the hotter the fire will feel. Additional information for those seeking info on other than fireplace fires It also helps to make a low side base surrounded by something and make it narrow at the top, so that all the fire is more focused in one spot. using all these ideas was what made the first copper, silver, and gold things. you may ask yourself how can you make a fire so hot that it burns metal but not whats surrounding it. rocks, carefully build rock kilns.
Yes, close the damper once all of the fire has died out. Leaving the damper open will cause warm air to be sucked up the flue, drawing in more cold air.
I asked a friend who installs furnaces and sells wood stoves this question. He said that he knows several people who swear by it. An older gentleman in my neighborhood said to… put Potassium chloride, or sodium chloride, 2-3 Tablespoons per week, on a hot fire. I was wondering where to buy it, then he said, "Why, that's just Ice Melt." So, it appears that some minerals, Sodium, Potassium, aluminum, may have some value? I tried to find ingredients on one of those creosote sweeping logs. For 15 dollars, they are probably just soaked in mineral water then dried. I am going to try the aluminum cans. Our outdoor wood burner is in an outbuilding. The tall flu pipe appears to be building up creosote. We are told that it is "cold shock"???? I'll write back here after a few weeks, if I notice less creosote.
Neither... The wood is the fuel, but first it needs to become a gas. The gas is what burns.
When a component treated with TANALITH wood preservative, applied using a vacuum pressure treatment process, reaches the end of its useful service life, there are a number of …methods to consider for its disposal. These options are dependent on the formulation of TANALITH preservative that the timber was treated with.

Answer Because heat is a big factor in starting and keeping a fire. You have air, and fuel, and the heat is already factored in. Yes, but that is not all Th…e wood that is already there burning helps too because the fact that it is burning means that most of the wood is dry, and dry wood burns much faster than wet or damp wood. Plus, the dry burning wood dries out any new wood that is placed on top of it, making all of the wood dry, which is the same as stacking tinder, as it is already ready to be set ablaze.
Yes. That is the A in ABC.
