The Kadant Direct Discharge disk filter is optimal for stock thickening and water return/channeling, removing water from pulp slurry. The pulp slurry is fed to the disk filter at approximatively 1% concentration and is accepted at 10%. The disk filter’s main advantage over other dewatering equipment is that it retains most of the fibers. Very clear filtrate means that the water can be returned up front in the previous steps of the process without carrying fibers that have already gone through the process.
The DNT pulp washing thickener is a high-speed double nip thickening machine, using a synthetic wire for the most efficient removal of small ink particles, fillers, and other contaminants smaller than 100 mm. The design is simple, compact, and offers high capacity with thorough washing.
The RotoFlex resource recovery strainer uses a unique, patented method of filter media cleaning to keep the filter medium open and to flush contaminants from the surface. The conical media hangs freely from the upper support ring and is not attached or in contact with any part of the strainer below the ring. As the feed flow from the distribution headers impact the media and the media rotates, the synthetic mesh flexes back and forth, shedding the fiber and debris without the aid of a cleaning shower or scraping device.
Used in applications with a high demand for pulp and paper cleanliness, these low maintenance systems offer cost-efficient fiber processing in a space-saving canister design. The Radiclone BM80 provides inline thickening, requires no additional pumps, and delivers one of the highest removal efficiencies available for lightweight contaminants, such as plastics, Styrofoam®, waxes, and shives.
The Kadant SaveMaxx screw compactor is used for thickening light rejects, such as plastics, in recycled paper production. It dewaters the rejects from horizontal pulper drums and from the washing drum of conventional pulpers.
A cost-effective dewatering solution for a variety of pulps and fibers as well as industrial waste and sludge. Paper stock furnishes, vegetable and fruit pulps, wheats, grains, and commercial residues can be efficiently dewatered according to your exact application and purpose based upon desired feed, rate, concentration, moisture, and retention time.
