KCL pilot scale high consistency refiner offers a great platform for researching and analyzing new solutions or improving your existing processes. Produced material amount can be from small laboratory samples to many tons for conducting paper machine trials.
The TMP/CTMP station can be used for a wide range of high yield pulping processes, including:
Refining trial can offer an environmental, economical and qualitative extra-value. The target can be for example:
Required amount of chips for one stage refining is 400 kg (oven dry) and for two or three stage refining 500 – 600 kg.
The refiner is operated using a Valmet Damatic control system. TMP/CTMP station is equipped with a complete acquisition and reporting system for the main refining parameters.
There are several options for chemical treatment of chips or pulp:
The pulp produced by the TMP station can be screened and the rejects thickened at the stock preparation station. The rejects can be refined again at high or low consistency. Refined rejects and the screening accepts can be mixed and the pulp can be run on the pilot paper machine. The resulting paper can be coated, calendered and printed at the KCL Pilot Plant.
