Pulp & Paper

In the paper mills we can find many applications for the Tekleen filters such as: cooling water filtration, process water filtration, spray nozzles protection, shower water, pump gland seals, R/O prefiltration and many more. Process water filtration in a paper mill often contains paper fibers. The removal of the fibers requires a special screen, which is called wedge wire or slotted screen. The unique advantage of these screens is that during the self-cleaning process, when the fibers are sucked out of the screen, they will not be stapled on the screen that will prevent the removal of the fibers. Stapling does take place with a wire mesh screens. Obviously, consideration must be given any time when a situation of fiber removal exists. Tekleen filters offer a unique advantage that is not available in many other filters. The unique advantage is the small size relative to the available flow rate and filtration capacities make them fit in many applications without requiring a large space. Should you have an application in mind, please check with Tekleen prices and availability, Tekleen.com

Mississippi Mud is No Match for Minnesota Paper Mill

Making wood and water come together to create high quality production-graded paper is the business of Blandin Paper, a subsidiary of UPM-Kymmene located in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The water used in Blandin's paper mills comes directly from the Mississippi River. It flows through a 24-inch pipe at a rate of 4,200 gallons per minute (with a maximum capacity of 10,000 gallons per minute) via two online pumps of 400 hp and 350 hp, respectively.

But Blandin Paper does not have to worry about sludge and other impurities from the Mississippi River contaminating its processing equipment and compromising the quality of its paper. The plant has installed four new, state-of-the-art, automatic Tekleen® water filters with 150-micron stainless steel screens to trap any debris that may be dredged up from the river.
