In the paper industry, gas-enabled process technologies can play an essential role in helping manufacturers to maximise process efficiency, enhance quality and reduce environmental impact.
Carbon dioxide, for instance, is an extremely effective way of adjusting and stabilising the pH, buffering the papermaking system, reducing dissolved calcium levels, and increasing dewatering. Our ACTICO® pH control and ADALKA® process stabiliser solutions enable operators to control pH with much greater ease and precision than alternative approaches. Not only does a stable pH result in fewer deposits, spots and holes in paper and breaks. It can also improve brightness while overcoming the cost and corrosion hazards associated with aggressive chemicals.
Working closely with our customers, we have established an in-depth understanding of the challenges and opportunities in papermaking. We help our customers to optimise various steps in the process flow through gas-enabled application technologies. A wide choice of supply modes, gas management services, expert consulting and state-of-the-art equipment round out our end-to-end offering.
Customers worldwide have installed our application technologies at various positions between the start of stock preparation and the headbox in around 40 paper machines, running with chemical pulps, mechanical pulps and recycled material.
