Pulp and paper filtration have always been important steps in the production of paper and paper products. However, there is now greater interest in incorporating more recycled pulp into paper production while reducing the negative environmental effects associated with wastewater and other effluents from the paper industry. The role of industrial screens for paper separation and wastewater treatment has never been more essential to the survival of the industry.
Pulp and Screen Paper Applications
The papermaking process has remained largely the same for hundreds of years. The felled trees are bark removed and processed into their natural fibers or pulp. They are then further refined into a suspension, where the water is finally removed, leaving a thin layer of paper to collect, dry, and roll. However, there have been significant environmental and economic advances in papermaking, largely due to better screening and filtration equipment such as that manufactured by VibraScreener ™.
Industrial sieves remove knots, debris, and other foreign objects during pulp processing. They also allow better water treatment and greater use of recycled paper, which must be used for ink, creating more water treatment needs. While in the past many paper mills have had to deal with environmental pressures related to chemicals such as bleaches and inks contained in their wastewater, modern screening methods for treating water allow paper mills to make large advances in the creation of paper within a closed water. cycle.
Looking to the future of papermaking, it is clear that well-designed filtration and separation equipment will continue to play an integral role in enabling this industry to prosper while meeting its economic and environmental goals.
