Will the presence of amine discolor or stain lumber?
« on: April 03, 2014, 10:58:31 AM »
As the title states, we are looking at implementing a neutralizing amine as a corrosion inhibitor in our steam system; the system does have steam injection.  One of our water treatment suppliers has mentioned past experiences of lumber that was dried with the presence of amine being somewhat discolored, even after it has been planed.  The bulk of our business is high quality/high value products headed into the Japanese market, so color and appearance are very important.  Does anybody have experience (both good and bad) in dealing with this product in steam systems where steam injection is present?
