High quality paper, coupled with lower production costs, is the formula for profitable paper making. Accurate and reliable metering of additives and colors is a necessity for today’s successful paper maker.
Albin peristaltic pumps provide process confidence and offer cost savings through:
Metering dyes, sizing agents, retention aids, optical brightening, biocide, phosphoric acid, soda ash, sodium hypochlorite and sodium nitrite solution. Adding and transferring coatings, green liquor and black liquor soap, alum, latex, glue, acids and alkalis, polymer, ink, kaolin, lime slurry and titanium dioxide.
It is not always possible to position a pump in the ideal location and often self-priming and dry running performance is required.
These conditions can cause wear in traditional pumps, resulting in loss of performance and premature failure. Albin peristaltic pumps can self-prime up to 31 feet and run dry indefinitely.
Leakage, clogging or blockage of traditional positive displacement pumps which incorporate seals, valves, lobes, rotors or vanes can be a regular occurrence and expensive to rectify. Albin peristaltic pumps contain the fluid in a tube or hose, requiring only one component to be changed, which means that maintenance costs are considerably lower than other pump types. Increased plant productivity and lower repair costs means pump payback is over months rather than years.
Paper coloring and tinting requires repeatable pump control for accurate addition of dyes and brighteners. Many traditional positive displacement pumps deliver varying flow rates, resulting in scrapped product and increased costs. Albin pumps are accurate up to ±0.5% across their total speed range, with the additional benefit of process control capabilities which allows easy installation. Less waste means increased profits.
