CleanPulp℠ Solutions

Solenis has been delivering solutions to pulp producers for decades, so we have a deep understanding of our customers’ needs and expectations. We continue to make investments in advanced technologies through R&D initiatives and strategic acquisitions. As a result, Solenis has amassed a state-of-the-art portfolio of process chemistries and monitoring and control systems to address today’s pulp challenges. We have also invested heavily in our onsite service professionals who bring to bear extensive insights and knowledge to tackle even the most demanding problems.

All of this problem-solving experience forms the foundation of our CleanPulp commitment — our pledge to help our customers produce the cleanest pulp possible in the most cost-efficient manner.

Benefits of a CleanPulp Solution

Ultimately, a CleanPulp solution brings together best-in-class chemistries, novel monitoring and control systems, and proprietary applications techniques to address complex operational challenges, to deliver production and quality improvements, and to drive down costs.

Key benefits reported by actual customers that have implemented a CleanPulp solution include:

  • Increased pulp yield
  • Improved throughput
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Reduced chemical costs
  • Decreased dirt counts
  • Improved fiber strength
  • Increased pulp brightness
  • Improved extractives removal
  • Improved chemical carryover

Real-world Solutions for Complex Challenges

Common fiber-related issues pulp mills face fall into two categories: operational efficiency (yield, unit operation throughput, energy and costs) and fiber quality (dirt, strength, brightness, extractives and chemical carryover). The magnitude of each problem can vary greatly depending on a mill’s unique needs and process limitations. Because pulping operations consist of multiple, interconnected units that exert influence on one another, changes or modifications to any part of the process will have implications throughout the entire system. By considering these effects more broadly, as interdependent processes, mills can implement more robust and cost-effective solutions to tackle their efficiency and quality issues.

Within the CleanPulp concept, four modes of chemical functionality assist in addressing the fiber-related challenges pulp mills face: impregnation, deresination, washing and deposit control. Solenis has assembled a number of best-in-class chemistries that add value to every aspect of pulp production by targeting parameters that directly affect operational efficiency and fiber quality.
