Refinery studies reduces energy consumption and optimizes product properties

The paint is a process step that is sometimes neglected, which can give too high energy consumption and product characteristics that are not optimal. MoRe has the equipment and experience to optimize the template strategy with the customer. In a recent case, a mill could be set as the result of a mall study.

We have great potential and great habits of doing milling studies at the factory. When we conduct a study, we run different mill combinations with varying effects on different mills. We take out pulp samples after the mills and test different properties of the paper and the fibers in the stock, as well as the drainage properties. Of course, we record all relevant process and quality data during the trial run.

By combining the results of our MoRe analyzes with factory data, we can propose changes to the template strategy in the current maturity. We can also do reference paintings in our conical Escher Wyss refiner, thus providing a performance index for the grinding part of the current melting process. We have, among other things, been involved in studies that in one case resulted in a non-needed mill which could save a lot of money.

We also have other mills, such as the PFI mill, in order to evaluate the maladhesiveness and product characteristics of different masses in the lab scale.

Many uses are facing the need to change production as a result of the decline in demand for different paper segments. This may mean that the composition of the paper changes, or that completely new products start to be manufactured.

In these cases, it may have consequences earlier in the chain and thus how the paint will change. This means that the grinding strategy should be reviewed so that the grinding can be as energy efficient as possible and give the new products optimal properties. It is important to utilize the potential of the fibers in the best way.
