The pulp and paper industry is continually looking for more advanced methods for heating products. The transformation found in a pulp heater significantly increases the efficiency of paper making while lowering energy demands and reducing clogging throughout the entire process.
A pulp heater is an innovative type of equipment mainly created to inject and mix steam directly into a low and medium consistency pulp stock line. They do this with the help of a static mixer.
They introduced it to solve the issues that were found in traditional mixing. As a revolutionary type of static mixer, it simplifies the process and gets the job done.
With the help of temperature control, and in order to improve chemical performance, the steam heats the stock into the pulp line. This process is by the pulp heater prior to the addition of bleaching chemicals.
Direct steam injection heating for pulp heating and bleaching is one of the most common techniques that usage is for. The pulp heater helps to lighten and/or remove the lignin element from the pulp to brighten its appearance. Its biggest factor is temperature control as temperature helps enhance the healing process.
The pulp heater is a product in demand as it acts as a significant energy saver. They are specifically significant in pulp mills or integrated paper and pulp mills. It is a cost-effective piece of equipment that is highly predictable when it comes to mixing and dispersion providing a uniform product. The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) application has a substantial effect on the energy efficiency as well.
