In the process of cooking and breaking down wood to create individual fibers, the kraft pulping process generates some undesirable by-products. These by-products all have safety and environmental impacts. This module will focus primarily on the collection and treatment of contaminated condensate streams.

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

  • State the purpose of a contaminated condensate system
  • List some of the chemicals which can contaminate condensate
  • List the locations where contaminated condensate should be collected
  • List two techniques for treating contaminated condensate
  • Describe the flows and operation of a steam stripping column
  • Define "condensate segregation"
  • Describe the benefits of segregating condensate collection
  • Identify and describe the safety hazards associated with some of the chemicals found in contaminated condensate

The following key questions are answered in this module:

Where are most of the compounds that contaminate condensate generated?
Most of the toxic compounds in contaminated condensate come from the chip digestion process.

How are volatile compounds separated from water in a stripping column?
Condensate is heated in a stripping columns and volatile compounds boil out of the mixture.

What happens to volatile compounds stripped from contaminated condensate.?
Stripper compounds are typically incinerated.

Is there an alternative method for treating contaminated condensate?
Instead of stripping and burning, contaminated condensate can be treated biologically in a wastewater treatment facility.

What does segregating condensate refer to?
Segregating refer to trying to capturing two streams, one with a high concentration of contaminants, and one relatively clean stream at the time of condensation.

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

In a packed column stripper contaminated condensate is fed into the top of the column and flows down over the surfaces of the packing. Steam flows into the bottom of the tower providing both heat and a vapor flow. As the contaminated condensate flows down and the steam flows up the temperature of the condensate increases, which forces the organic components, which have a lower boiling point, out of the liquid and into the vapor phase.

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.
