Pulp and Paper Market Pumping Operations

Wood chipping / Debarking

Making paper involves many processes that require different types of pumps for mixing, metering, and pumping various abrasive materials and chemicals. Pulp production starts with raw materials, typically trees, that must be cut into logs before going through a debarking and chipping process. Pumps that move this material for further processing in the pulp production cycle must withstand the harsh abrasiveness in the debarking and chipping process such as self-priming and submersible slurry pumps.


Pumps must support the chemical and mechanical pulp line as corrosive chemicals like sodium hydrosulfite, sulphuric acid, sodium hydroxide, sodium silicate, and various soaps are used for the de-inking stage in paper mills. Flotation tanks collect ink particles allowing the pulp to sink to the bottom to be pumped out.

Stock Preparation

Stock preparation occurs after the paper mill receives the pulp in a continuous feeding solution for continual production. Cellulose fibers and pulp require the adding of fillers while suspended in water for fiber bonding.
Various pumps support the de-inking and stock preparation stages in a paper mill including rotary vane, gear pumps, self-priming, flooded suction, and submersible pumps.

Wet End Chemical Preparation

Several additives are required in the paper production process including dyes, starches, retention aids, fillers, brighteners, calcium carbonate, polyaluminum chloride, and many other chemicals that must be metered and pumped into the stock. Many types of pumps such as submersible slurry pumps, self-priming, rotary vane, lobe, and gear pumps support the wet end chemicals preparation process in paper mills.

Starch Preparation

Cationic starches provide many benefits such as improving mechanical strength, retention of fillers, quicker drainage, and reduction of wastewater pollution. The starches are cooked in a solution, metered, and pumped continually into the paper stock mix to primarily provide strength and retention in papermaking. Pumps in this process must perform at high temperatures typically over 100°C and include self-priming and flooded suction pumps.

Wastewater and dewatering

Many unusable byproducts are inevitably created during the papermaking process and include flocculants, effluents, and sludge that must be pumped away and removed from the plant. This final process is necessary but does not contribute to creating products for sale or profit, thus requiring an efficient and safe, cost-effective pumping solution. Self-priming centrifugal, flooded suction solids-handling, and submersible slurry pumps provide solutions to the wastewater process in paper mills.
