Applications in the pulp and paper industry
This process takes raw lumber, strips the bark, and reduces it into chips suitable for further refinement into pulp. These machines require heavy-duty power transmission v-belts and banded belts that can absorb shock loads, and can slip in the sheaves to serve as a clutching mechanism to protect the drives.
Digesters, Agitators, Pulpers, Screeners, Mixers, Sifters, Raggers, Washers
Reduced wood chips that have been screened are moved into this process where the chips processed through a series of chemical and mechanical reduction processes. This breaks down the wood into soft fibrous material suitable for a wide range of paper industrial applications. These machines also require power transmission products engineered to protect motors and drives.
Water and Treatment
Pumps, Filters, Evaporators, Condensers, Exhaust Fans
The water and chemicals used in processing wood fibers require many pump drives that can move millions of gallons of liquids every day. These pumps use industrial v-belts and ribbed belts.
