Paper Industry is one of the high priority industries having a bearing on socio-economic development globally. In India also, the industry plays a vital role in the overall industrial growth and is one of the fastest-growing industries. The paper industry in India consists of small, medium and large-sized paper mills manufacturing different grades of paper as per market need. In order to obtain a good end product, the paper and pulp industry goes through multiple processes.
The quality and characteristics of paper are the flagships of any manufacturer. If the quality of the paper is excellent, it leads to high revenue along with satisfied customers. But achieving the desired end product with unmatched quality is an arduous task. The key to success is optimal climate control in the production and storage stage.
Pulp and paper manufacturing is a cumbersome process involving a lot of critical steps, factors such as high temperatures, high humidity, and constant water ingress are particularly challenging and can adversely impact productivity.
Low humidity in the slitting area will cause moisture losses to occur; these losses will take place very quickly. The paper sheds most of its moisture during the manufacturing process, it tends to regain moisture, particularly along the edges, during packaging and storage.
The other prevalent factor which needs to be given equal importance while manufacturing is the corrosive gases. In paper and pulp industries, there are different chambers associated to develop the products, such as DCS rooms, recovery boiler control rooms, pulp milk control rooms, fibre line control room, evaporated line control rooms and others. These control rooms get exposed to a wide variety of corrosive chemicals like chlorine, sulphides, hypochlorite and several other similar corrosive substances as products react at various stages while processing the pulp. This control room equipment are to be protected to achieve optimum reliability and productivity of the paper and pulp processing as high eminent chemicals and gases such as hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide can bring the server in control rooms to a halt.
Gas Phase Filtration System is the most ideal and cost-effective system to deal with any issue of corrosion in various control rooms. It is the key to airborne molecular gaseous and particulate contamination removal. Bry-Air Gas Phase Filtration Systems (GPF) Systems provides an optimum solution for efficient removal of air-borne contaminants causing corrosion, bad odour and harmful gases from the atmosphere. The systems are designed keeping in view various existing parameters such as contaminants presence and their concentration, airflow, space availability and standard legacy systems in the contaminated atmosphere. The wide range of chemical media and macro-porous chemical filters are most suited for the efficient removal of almost all types of harmful contaminants.
Therefore, having Gas Phase Filtration solutions, and Desiccant Dehumidifiers moisture control solutions are a blessing for the paper and pulp industry operators preventing them from the hassle of corrosion and abysmal product.
