Missouri Tie takes great pride in our treating operation.  We have two 125’ long cylinders, both 6’ in diameter.  These are pressure vessels for treating the wood with creosote.  The ties are trammed in the cylinders, filled with creosote, sterilized at high temperatures, and then pressed to ensure proper retention and penetration of creosote. 

A standard industry retention is 7lbs per cubic foot of creosote solution. The treating plant uses a wood fired boiler system for its steam and heat needs.
