Paper & Pulp

Paper & Pulp Pump Applications

The paper and pulp industry is one of the most demanding from a pumping perspective.  Like many processes, often paper and pulp plants are running 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  Such a huge industry needs pumps that can cope with its huge range of demands and pumps that exceed expectations in terms of reliability and performance.

In addition to pumping high volumes of water there are also more challenging liquids such as slurries and sludges, which can be particularly viscous, plus aggressive chemicals.

In addition to pure liquids, the paper industry requires the movement of pulp suspensions of various densities and types.  Often these have a solids component and so they exhibit specific flow behaviours.

With a comprehensive knowledge of this industry and the availability of a multitude of pump types, both from our portfolio of key pump manufacturers and others, AVT can recommend the most appropriate for your application.

In particular, we have the expertise to enhance your productivity, increase energy efficiency and recommend process refinements to further reduce cost.  Manufacturers with pumps particularly appropriate to the pulp and paper industry include: Denver Orion, Warman and Atlantic.
