Paper Mill in Virginia.
Green liquor piping, white liquor piping, evaporator piping, heat exchangers.
Fifteen HydroFLOW water conditioners in various locations of high mineral concentrations.
One of the byproducts of papermaking is the generation of high concentrations of calcium carbonate, sodium carbonate and sodium sulfate in the process water. Due to the high concentrations of these minerals; scale deposits coat the inside of pipes, pumps and heat exchangers, restricting flow and heat transfer efficiency. Typically, pipes and equipment need to be disassembled and cleaned (by hydro-blasting) approximately every 6 months.
