Paper & Pulp
About The Paper & Pulp Industry
Pulp and paper companies use wood as raw material to produce pulp, paper, board, and other cellulose-based products. In a real sense, paper production is already a recycling process; wood, fiber crops, and waste paper are used to create paper for a multitude of purposes.
Future challenges include increased global competition, controlling production costs, and meeting stringent environmental standards. This scenario calls for streamlining manufacturing processes while minimizing water and energy costs and improving product quality while reducing downtime. Customer needs are quite diverse because of the multi-step processes involved. Quality control is of the utmost importance. Power generation and wastewater treatment are also concerns.
Because effective drying plays an essential role in both paper-making and recycling, your choice of drying equipment is important. Our direct rotary dryers can be configured for parallel flow or counter-current flow. Air heating of the product increases heat transfer and accelerates drying. Our dryers offer a full control module, enabling control of the moisture content, throughput, and residence time.
In addition, we have the technology to help you recapture energy from waste and/or facilitate waste disposal while mitigating the risks to health and the environment. From testing, design, and manufacturing to set-up, training, and maintenance support, our experienced team will work with you every step of the way.
