Pulp and paper filtration have always been important steps in the production of paper and paper products. However, there’s currently an increased interest in incorporating more recycled pulp in paper production while simultaneously reducing the negative environmental effects commonly associated with the paper industry’s wastewater and other effluents. The role of industrial screeners for paper separation and wastewater treatment has never been more essential to the survival of the industry.
Screening Pulp and Paper Applications
The basic process of papermaking has remained largely the same for hundreds of years. Felled trees are stripped of bark and processed down into their natural fibers or pulp. They’re then refined further into a slurry, where eventually the water is removed, leaving a thin layer of paper to be picked up, dried and rolled. However, major environmental and economic advances have occurred in papermaking, and they’re largely due to better screening and filtration equipment like that made by VibraScreener™.
Industrial screeners remove knots, debris and other foreign objects during pulp processing. They also allow for better water treatment and greater use of recycled paper, which needs to be de-inked, resulting in further needs for water treatment. While in the past many paper mills have had to contend with environmental pressures related to the chemicals, such as bleaches and inks contained in their wastewater, modern screening methods for water treatment are allowing paper mills to make great strides in creating paper within a closed water cycle.
Looking ahead to the future of papermaking, it’s clear that well-designed separation and filtration equipment will continue to play an integral part in allowing this industry to thrive while meeting both its economic and environmental objectives.
