A standardized concept for tower equipment has been developed to improve process performance, reduce power consumption, increase mechanical reliability and minimize the need for spare parts.
A flexible gear box standard has also been designed, to permit the use of the most common gear-box equipment.
The new concept for tower equipment includes:
- Dynamic Pulp FlowDistributor, TMC, for tower and reactor inlet distribution
- Outlet FlowScraper, SA-U (U=Up). The outlet is positioned on the sphere, with a block valve, to minimize the risk of plugging
- Bottom FlowScraper, SA-D (D=Down), discharging into a stand pipe
- For up-flow tower discharge, at medium consistency TSB-T and at low consistency the TSB-V discharge scrapers are used
