Reliable air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps make every pulp processing plant safer. When functioning properly, they safely dispose of hazardous wastewater generated during the papermaking process.
Recently, a major pulp and paper producer that operates nearly 30 facilities around the country needed an AODD pump for one of its kraft mills that makes paper products for U.S. and international markets.
The paper producer needed a sump pump to dispose of rainwater in a containment area at one of its plants. But rainwater wasn’t all that needed to be disposed of by the pump. Black liquor soap—a byproduct extracted during the conversion of wood into wood pulp—also entered the containment area. Therefore, the sump pump needed to be able to pump rainwater as well as this hazardous byproduct.
