High Pressure Sap Displacement (HPSD) Method and Bethell Process for Treatment of Round Bamboo (FTIHB16)

K. T. Choo  & K. S. Gan


HPSD treatment of green bamboo gives a minimum dry salt retention (DSR) of about 11.50 kg m-3 up to a distance of 100 cm from the capped end. For the Bethell process, at a moisture content of about 35%, the minimum DSR is 35.03 kg m-3. A detailed description of the prototype HPSD system designed for the experiment is given.
