Pulp & Paper Manufacturing Process
The following illustration is an overview of the entire Pulp & Paper manufacturing process. Notice that Micropump pumps have application in three of the process steps. This application brief focuses on the application of Micropump pumps in the Bleaching process step.
Application Focus: Bleaching
In the paper manufacturing process, wood pulp leaving the digester wash unit often must be bleached to attain the desired level of paper whiteness. Bleach plants whiten pulp through three to five stages of bleaching and water washing.
Micropump pumps are used in these applications to deliver the appropriate bleaching agent and to maintain the proper chemical balance in the bleaching towers.
Micropump pumps deliver smooth, controlled flow of whitening agents to the bleaching towers.
|FLOW RATE: 0.050 to 18.9 L/min (0.79 to 300 USG/hr) flow rates
|| We have variable speed pumps with flows from 0.158 to 42.9L/min (2.5 to 680 USG/hr)
|CHEMICAL RESISTANT PUMP MATERIALS
|| Our pump construction materials stand up to most pulp bleaching chemicals
|PRECISE FLOW CONTROL
|| We offer positive displacement gear pumps for precise metering of bleaching agents
|| Our pumps have magnetic drives, so no shafts penetrate the pump cavity, eliminating leak-prone dynamic shaft seals
|| We offer Service Kits for easy field serviceability
