Wetend supports development of new biobased forest products
TrumpJet Flash mixing technology of Wetend enables wide product portfolio and platform for next generation paper, board, tissue and non-woven production lines. Wetend continuously develops its core business to effectively flash-mix additives into process. Improved mixing reveals new opportunities and applications to work with. The outcome supports the work of our clients to introduce new or improved bio based forest products to consumers and industries.
TrumpJet Flash Mixing Reactor: TrumpJet® Flash Mixing is a system to mix papermaking chemicals into the main process with fast, effective and uniform manner. It improves paper, board or tissue quality but also the economy by cutting down chemical consumption. Post dilution with water or filtrate is reduced by 100%. Wetend has developed a new concept, TrumpJet Flash Mixing Reactor, where opposite charge chemicals or pairs of chemicals can be mixed in a single reactor zone with good results. Read more here.
TRUMPJET FLASH MIXING REACTOR APPLICATIONS:
Flash Mixing Reactor for Micro Bubbled Foam Generation for foam forming process for board, paper, tissue and non-woven products. Wetend has developed a TrumpJet mixing method to generate micro gas bubbles from air or gas and inject the gas flow into high volume liquid process flow. The process generates billions of micro gas bubbles in size 20…50 µm. Foam based production can give excellent formation, bulk and works well with extra long fibers.
Flash Mixing Reactor for Paper and Board Composite Structures; Extra long bio based or synthetic fibers. The new Wetend-Sulzer TIP injection pump innovation makes it possible to fluidize and mix long bio based or synthetic fibers very close to paper/board machine headbox or a non-woven production line. The system opens opportunity to develop and generate new composite structures for board or paper and non-woven products.
Flash Mixing Reactor for Paper and Board Composite Structures; Nano and micro fibers/pulp. The developed Injection technology enables fluidizing nano and micro pulp and efficiently mix it very close to paper/board machine headbox and guiding 90% of the flow directly to web formed by the process. MFC or NFC pulp is exploited to develop new and better quality characteristics of the end product.
Flash Mixing Reactor for Paper and Board In-Line PCC™. Core of the process is In-Line PCC Flash Mixing Reactor for very fast mixing of CO2 gas and milk of lime slurry straight into thin stock in PM/BM approach flow. The stable and controlled reaction produces calcium carbonate crystals loaded on fibers. Four installations have been supplied for In-Line PCC filler production.
