Hydrocyclone systems remove unwanted particles such as sand, glass, metal, plastic and polystyrene from pulp.
A Piecemeal 4.0 Approach? Really?
The Internet of Things, augmented reality, virtual reality, digitized twins, artificial intelligence… these technologies are constantly vying for our attention, 4.0 times over. The danger is that you could spread yourself to thin with a multitude of solutions.
5 tips to prevent Sheet Stealing - Trouble Shooting Guide
There are different ways of saying the sheet doesn’t go where it needs to go in the Press Section:
What can we learn from the energy industry about mill-wide optimization?
The development of the Industrial Internet toward Artificial Intelligence (AI) and autonomous mills will enable mill-wide optimization of processes. By “autonomous,” I mean machines or mills that can act independently without being controlled by humans.
An innovative approach to water reuse in the pulp & paper industry
How SUEZ’s membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology gives a second life to prevent plant closure
Steam Ejector System Technology
Steam ejectors use steam or gas instead of moving parts to compress a gas. In a jet or ejector, a relatively high-pressure gas, like steam or air, expands through a nozzle.
Valmet offers remote support with augmented reality in mill shutdown during pandemic
The human relationships have changed dramatically around the world since the start of the new coronavirus pandemic.
What is the optimum operating tension for a dryer fabric?
It depends. Dryer fabric tension holds the sheet in tight contact with dryer surfaces to increase the drying rate and uniformity of heat transfer.
What Torque Is Required to Mount Rotary Pressure Joints? - The Most Frequent of All FAQs
My name is Rick Lull and I am a Senior Applications Engineer at Kadant Johnson. I have a degree in Paper Process Engineering and have worked as a Kadant Johnson applications engineer for 20 years.
Weight Virtual Measurement for paper, packaging and tissue
The ABB Ability™ Performance Service provides auto-correlating calculations for online conditioned weight measurement to enable mills to reduce quality losses by getting on-spec faster during sheet breaks and start up events.
Don’t Get Steamed; Keep Your Paper Machine Dryers Operating Efficiently
Paper machine dryers consume tremendous amounts of energy and have a direct impact on product quality, but the drying process is highly complex and requires extensive process knowledge to optimize.
6 reasons to choose direct drive systems for your pulp and paper mill
Drives are an integral part of pulp and paper operations and need to run reliably every single day, according to the precise demands of the process.
Open Top Headbox Shower Eliminates Pulp Build-Up
Open Top Headbox Shower Eliminates Pulp Build- up in a Paper Production Factory
Adding Capacity with Little Investment at APPM
Russia, 2020 - Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill (APPM) is one of the largest producers of containerboard in Russia, producing over 500 000 TPY of fluting and Kraft linerboard.
Are there any procedures for cold shut-down of paper dryers?
There should be procedures in place both to start-up and to shut down a dryer section.
Data management: the formula for pulp and paper analytics success
Effective data management requires having a strategy and reliable methods to access, integrate, cleanse, govern, store and model - to prepare data for analytics so that it adds value.
Is it time to consider asset condition management?
Asset condition management is not a new topic – it’s a new point of view. Instead of merely monitoring a valve or other devices, asset condition management captures the big-picture information and consolidates all improvement processes to help maintain highly reliable plant assets.
Preventing Steam System Damage from Improper Flexible Metal Hose Installations
Proper flexible metal hose installations prevent stress on rotary joints and unions as well as connected piping due to thermal expansion, vibration, and misalignment.
Case Study: Liqui-Mover® Pump Succeeds Where Electric Condensate Pumps Failed
A Fortune 100 company heats its multi-building campus from a central boiler house. To pump the return condensate, it was using electric pumps located in a sub-basement that flooded once or twice a year with up to eight feet of water.
Key indicators can help industry save energy
By comparing different industrial processes, companies and official bodies can increase their knowledge about possible savings of energy. There is a huge potential for reductions in energy consumption and, in the long run, less impact on the climate.
Improved drying - Reduce thermal resistance with spoiler bars
It's hard to imagine how successful drying techniques would be today without the spoiler bar. It is based on the premise that the thermal resistance of the dryer's condensate layer can be reduced by fitting axial bars, or "spoiler bars" on the inside of the dryer shell.
