CleanPulpSM Solutions

Solenis has been delivering solutions to pulp producers for decades, so we have a deep understanding of our customers’ needs and expectations. We continue to make investments in advanced technologies through R&D initiatives and strategic acquisitions. As a result, Solenis has amassed a state-of-the-art portfolio of process chemistries and monitoring and control systems to address today’s pulp challenges. We have also invested heavily in our onsite service professionals who bring to bear extensive insights and knowledge to tackle even the most demanding problems.

What is CleanPulp?

Problem-solving is the foundation of our CleanPulp commitment — a pledge to help our customers produce the cleanest pulp specified in the most cost-efficient manner. We live up to this promise by partnering with our customers to understand their operational and quality goals and then providing a carefully designed solution that delivers maximum value to the customer.

Once a solution is designed, it is our commitment to be an active participant in implementing, maintaining, and documenting the value of that solution. We do this by leveraging three basic principles: using the right chemistry, applied in the right place, and in the right amount. We call this the three R’s of value delivery.

Right Chemistry

  • Solenis has a complete portfolio of best-in-class chemistries that bring value to every part of pulp mill. This portfolio is one tool in our value delivery toolbox.
  • Solenis also has dedicated pulp R&D staff that are focused on market-driven development of next-generation chemistries.

Right Place

  • Key to value delivery is applications technology. Using the right chemistry at the right point requires a strong team asking the right questions.
  • Solenis has an experienced and dedicated group of applications experts that come from a wide variety of pulping, bleaching, recaust, and recovery backgrounds that have uniquely equipped them to be a part of the problem-solving team.

Right Amount

  • Using just the right amount of chemistry is critical to the success of a proposed solution.
  • Solenis has a growing portfolio of digital monitoring and dosing solutions to ensure that a particular chemistry is always being added in an amount that is consistent with process needs.
  • The CleanPulp DC1 Defoamer Control Algorithm can enhance washer performance, improve pulp quality and lower costs by ensuring that your brown stock defoamer is added based on process need. The CleanPulp SC1 Scale Control Algorithm can automatically adjust your digester scale control feed rates in line with scaling potential to maximize performance and ensure that you are not paying for more product than you need to achieve your goals.

Benefits of a CleanPulp Solution

Ultimately, a CleanPulp solution brings together best-in-class chemistries, novel monitoring and control systems and proprietary applications techniques to address complex operational challenges, to deliver production and quality improvements, to drive down costs, and to help you achieve your sustainability goals.

Key benefits reported by actual customers that have implemented a CleanPulp solution include:

  • Increased pulp yield
  • Improved throughput
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Reduced chemical costs
  • Decreased dirt counts
  • Improved fiber strength
  • Increased pulp brightness
  • Improved extractives removal
  • Improved chemical carryover

Real-world Solutions for Complex Challenges

Common fiber-related issues that pulp mills face fall into two categories: operational efficiency (yield, unit operation throughput, energy and costs) and fiber quality (dirt, strength, brightness, extractives and chemical carryover). The magnitude of each problem can vary greatly depending on a mill’s unique needs and process limitations. Because pulping operations consist of multiple, interconnected units that exert influence on one another, changes or modifications to any part of the process will have implications throughout the entire system. By considering these effects more broadly, as interdependent processes, mills can implement more robust and cost-effective solutions to tackle their efficiency and quality issues.

Within the CleanPulp concept, four modes of chemical functionality assist in addressing the fiber-related challenges pulp mills face: impregnation, deresination, washing and deposit control. Solenis has assembled several best-in-class chemistries that add value to every aspect of pulp production by targeting parameters that directly affect operational efficiency and fiber quality.
