ARBOCEL® - The natural additive for paper and board production
A proven and tested way to safe energy
" A 1% decrease in moisture content going into the dryers means 5-10% higher through-put at the reel. An increase in productivity, which equates to a reduction in energy cost."
This is a proven rule long recognized by managers of mills producing chipboard, folding boxboard, core and tube stock, linerboard, etc. Improving the dewatering characteristics of board made from recycled fiber has been an ongoing goal for many years. This latest technology (the use of ARBOCEL®) incorporates both an improvement in dewatering along with easier water vapor removal in the dryers. Together they are helping board producers realize impressive reduction of energy consumption and productivity increases. With the high cost of energy this is more meaningful than ever!
higher recovered paper utilization rate, fibers are recycled more and more
times thus becoming shorter, flatter, and loaded with more fillers and fines.
This makes it increasingly difficult for board producers to meet caliper and
stiffness specifications without running high basis weight. Besides, such furnish
reduces dewatering during drainage and pressing, and evaporation rate in the
dryers. This results in lower productivity and higher energy consumption.
ARBOCEL® is a „super additive"
It is a cost effective
all-cellulose material, used at low addition rate and offering a number of
benefits. While used in recovered paper and board production, it may be added
directly into recycled furnish or replace part of the costly mechanical pulp
How ARBOCEL® works
Prevent early contact by fiber surfaces: reduce flocculation - improve formation
Act like spacers and increase microvoid level: provide better dewatering
Provide more open fibrous structure: enhance pressing efficiency
Create more open channels in the fibrous matrix: increase steam diffusion rate
Being positioned between papermaking fibers: increase caliper/bulk
