Chemical Dosing Pump used on pulp and paper manufacturing equipment

Pumps & Pulp and Paper Industry

In the pulp and paper industry, using the right pump at the proper process makes a significant difference in the quality of your product. There are different pumps in the market to pick from, but selecting the right pump will boost production, and enhance the life of your entire system.

The pulp and paper industry faces high demands for improved product quality while minimizing waste, energy, and costs. This is where metering pumps come into play. The use of metering pumps helps in the accurate delivery of chemicals, colors, and additives. Depending on their build, metering pumps can operate in the demanding environment of the pulp and paper plant, delivering high accuracy and efficiency.

One of the metrics of a profitable paper making plant is high-quality paper in combination with reduced production cost. Reliable and precise metering of materials is in high demand in the market today.

A typical dosing pump will guarantee any pulp and paper plant the following:

  • Low cost of maintenance
  • Durability
  • High accuracy and Repeatability

In a pulp and paper plant, the following are some of the applications of metering pumps

  • Metering dyes,
  • Adding and transferring coats
  • Preparation of highly consistent glue or additives
  • Transportation of sodium nitrite solution and sodium hypochlorite
  • Injecting acids and alkalis, and other materials.

High Accuracy and Repeatability

Paper coloring and tinting need a repeatable pump control for injecting dyes, colors, and brightener. Traditional pumps deliver the materials in varying flow rates, and this affects the production process, product quality, and costs. Dosing pumps, on the other hand, guarantee a precise flow rate with an accuracy up to ±0.5% irrespective of the speed of delivery. These ensure a reduction in material and energy waste, thus leading to more quality products and enhanced process control.

Factors to Consider When Selecting a Dosing Pump

The most important step in choosing an appropriate pump for your system is to understand the process requirements as well as the properties of the materials the process will require. Selecting a dosing pump to meet these specifications will guarantee you an efficient performance. However, it is essential to pay close attention to specific details and involve WRS experts who are experienced in the field. Some of the parameters to consider when buying a dosing pump for your pulp and paper plant include;

Volume and pressure of material to be pumped

  • Flow rate
  • Composition of fluid
  • Temperature
  • Construction materials of pump
  • Drivers
  • Viscosity
  • Operating environment
