We performed set of further experiments using our new 50-kW RF/pressurization kiln in Penn State Forest Resources Laboratory in November 2017.

50-kW RF/pressurization chamber with auto-loading of wood packaging materials was installed in Forest Resources Laboratory in 2017.

RF trials on commercial size wood stacks of mixed white oak, mixed ash and mixed red oaks were performed at a RF vacuum drying unit at Forestville, NY.

Radio-frequency (RF) and microwave (MW) heating for phytosanitary treatment of green wood in compliance with International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM-15) were evaluated and compared to assess treatment time, depth of electromagnetic wave (EMW) penetration and heating uniformity.
