High-performance oxygen delignification
Valmet’s OxyTrac™ system removes lignin with excellent efficiency. It is the ideal oxygen delignification stage and a great asset for pulp mills.
Delignification with OxyTrac™ removes up to 65-70% of the remaining lignin after cooking. This result remains unchallenged. The secret lies in the carefully optimized conditions.
Substantial reduction of effluent load
Delignification with OxyTrac™ results in a low kappa number of the pulp entering the bleach plant. This enables a substantial reduction of the consumption of chemicals.
Other objectives of extending the delignification with OxyTrac™ are to reach a higher brightness of bleached pulp and to facilitate bleach plant closure. A higher yield of bleached pulp is obtained if an extended delignification by oxygen replaces a part of the residual delignification by cooking.
Advantages of OxyTrac™
- Removes lignin with excellent efficiency
- Substantial reduction of the consumption of chemicals in the bleach plant
- A flexible solution: OxyTrac™ suits production of hardwood pulps as well as production of softwood pulps. It involves one or two reaction stages.
- Process variables such as pulp consistency, temperature and reaction time, are optimized to achieve optimal delignification. OxyTrac™ is customized to meet every pulp mill's unique needs.
