Chlorine is an excellent chemical for pulp bleaching because of its low cost and lignin removal effectiveness. For these reasons, chlorine was traditionally used in the first bleaching stage to remove up to 90% of the lignin remaining in unbleached pulp. Chlorination is the treatment of pulp with chlorine to solubilize lignin and ultimately bleach the pulp. This course discusses the basics of chlorine bleaching chemistry, the purpose of extraction, and the equipment used in chlorination and extraction.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Define the purpose of extraction
  • Describe the variables of extraction
  • Describe the safety concerns of sodium hydroxide
  • Identify equipment used for extraction
  • Describe the role of oxygen and hydrogen peroxide in extraction

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is an alkaline extraction stage?
An alkaline extraction stage follows a bleaching stage to make the lignin soluble so it can be removed by washing.

What chemicals are used for alkaline extraction?
The main chemical for is sodium hydroxide (NaOH). Also, oxygen and/or hydrogen peroxide are often added for better bleaching results.

Why are oxygen and/or hydrogen peroxide added to an alkaline extraction stage?
Alkaline extraction conditions are similar to those used for oxygen or peroxide. Adding these chemicals removes additional lignin and helps achieve a higher and more stable final brightness.

What is the retention time for alkaline extraction?
A typical retention time is 1-1.5 hours.

What are some of the hazards of sodium hydroxide?
Sodium hydroxide is a dangerous chemical that reacts violently with water and acid and it will cause severe chemical burns if it gets on your skin.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Chlorination is the treatment of pulp with chlorine to solubilize lignin and ultimately bleach the pulp. Chlorine is an excellent chemical for pulp bleaching because of its low cost and lignin removal effectiveness. For these reasons, chlorine was traditionally used in the first bleaching stage, to remove up to 90% of the lignin remaining in unbleached pulp. Chlorine is a forgiving bleaching chemical. The reaction is fast and can occur over a wide range of pH, temperature, and consistency. Chlorine use is almost completely obsolete because it harms the environment. Only a few locations around the world still use elemental chlorine for bleaching. Chlorine makes lignin soluble in water or in alkali. So an alkaline extraction stage is required after chlorination to actually remove the lignin from pulp.

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
