Steam recycling is an important aspect of the energy-demanding refining process.
It is a well-known fact that fiber carryover in the recycled steam can cause problems such as plugging, operating stops for cleaning and, in some cases, emitting fiber and steam into the surrounding environment.
TMP mills are frequently forced to interrupt production to clean heat exchangers and steam piping. The reason is that traditional pressure cyclones are not sufficiently effective. Replacing the conventional steam separation equipment with a PeriSplitter results not only in a minimum amount of fiber carryover, it also means better utilization of the available fiber.
- Minimal fiber carryover
- Higher fiber yield
- Low operating cost
- Increased availability
