Pulp & Paper Industry

Belzona in the Pulp & Paper Industry

For the highly-competitive pulp and paper industry, problems such as erosion, corrosion, abrasion, slippage, safety, leakage, replacement costs, insufficient pressure, unscheduled shutdowns, and stock contamination have a direct effect on the bottom line. The industry has recognized the numerous benefits from the utilization of Belzona’s Advanced Polymers to solve these problems, and in the process keep plants running efficiently.

Belzona’s pulp and paper industry customers range in size from small recycling operations to major, international conglomerates.

Regardless of size or output, these customers continue to recognize the distinct cost saving advantages of using Belzona.

In the pulp and paper industry, Belzona’s Advanced Polymeric Repair Systems can be used to repair and protect a wide variety of equipment and areas. The following applications represent only a fraction of what can be accomplished through the use of Belzona:

This is an excellent example of what happens to a pillow block bearing on a dryer journal when you have loss of lubrication or contamination. Conventional repairs would have cost the mill an enormous amount in terms of related downtime expense.

The Belzona repair was completed without removing the dryer journal shaft, thereby avoiding the costly disassembly. The entire repair, utilizing a Belzona in-place forming technique, was completed in 5 ½ hours. This Belzona application saved the mill over $US 100,000 and has been in service since 1996.

A safe working environment around fast moving pieces of equipment is extremely important. Oil, water, pulp and paper, leads to slip hazards. Belzona’s Safety Grip System was used to provide a safe, non-skid floor area that has proven resistant to mill traffic and process chemicals since 1987.

Turbo separators suffer from severe abrasion from paper clips, staples, sand and other contaminants. Traditional, or conventional, repairs with replacement basalt tiles are time consuming and costly. Turbo separators suffer from severe abrasion from paper clips, staples, sand and other contaminants. Traditional, or conventional, repairs with replacement basalt tiles are time consuming and costly. A Belzona Abrasion-resistant Polymer was used to create an even wearing surface, as well as to seal the worn porous grout commonly used around each of the tiles, for a fraction of the cost of basalt tile replacement.

Storage of fiber stocks is necessary at appropriate points in the process to provide surge capacity and allow for interruptions in either supply or demand. These tile-lined chests are often spalled by white water chemical attack. The loose grout and concrete further contaminates the stock and causes concerns regarding pulp quality.
