In order to process wood chips into pulp they must be separated based on size, or "screened." Chips are screened in order to remove foreign debris and remove oversized and undersized wood pieces from the acceptable chips. This module will describe the purpose of chip screening and different types of equipment used for chip screening.

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

  • Describe the purpose of chip screening
  • Identify the various safety hazards and the safety precautions required to safely work around chip screening operations
  • Identify the most common size classifications of screened chips
  • Identify the importance of uniformly sized chips
  • Identify and describe equipment used for chip screening
  • Identify and describe the equipment used to reclaim oversized chips
  • Identify and describe primary process flows
  • Describe some things to consider in typical chip screening operation design

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What are some of the reasons that chips are screened?
Chips are screened to remove contaminants and both over- and under-sized chips.

In terms of pulping, what is the most important chip dimension?
Uniform pulp quality is best achieved by having chips of a uniform chip thickness.

What role chip slicers and chip conditioners play?
Chip slicers and conditioners process oversize chips, reduce their size and return them to the process.

What are some alternatives to simple open-hole screens?
Alternative screens include disc, roll and bar screens.

What will happen if a screen is overloaded?
An overloaded screen will not operate efficiently and proper size separation will not occur.

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

There are many variations on the basic perforated plate screen. As the understanding of the importance of chip thickness has grown, so as the adoption of disc screens. In this type screen, several parallel shafts each with a series of closely spaced steel discs mounted on them are arranged to create a roughly horizontal surface. The shafts are spaced such that the discs slightly overlap. This creates screening slots between the discs. All of the shafts rotate in the same direction. Profiles on the perimeter of the discs jostle the chips. If the chips are thin enough, they fall between the discs. If they are too thick, they are pushed over the rows of discs and off the end of the screen. Some systems employ a disc screen as a primary thickness screen after the scalping screen to remove over thick chips.

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.
