Valmet provides state-of-the-art bleach plants for all commercial pulp grades, i.e. chemical, dissolving and mechanical pulps of softwood and hardwood. Valmet’s bleaching plants are customized to meet each pulp mill's unique needs.
Bleach plant designs are optimized to produce the desired pulp quality at minimum cost and minimum environmental impact. You achieve high pulp quality, low consumption of chemicals and energy as well as minimal effluent load.
The key success factors in bleaching chemical pulp are effective mixing of bleaching chemicals into the pulp, well-defined retention times in bleaching reactors and barrier washing between bleaching stages. Barrier washing results in low chemical consumption, low effluent flows and the possibility to operate at zero fresh water consumption.
