Water is used in virtually every step of the pulping and papermaking process. It is used for cooking, bleaching, washing and fiber transport. It is used for steam creation and cooling. This module covers the major sources of mill raw water, the contaminants commonly found in raw water, as well as raw water testing and treatment.

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

  • Explain how water is used in a mill
  • List the major sources of mill raw water
  • List the major classes of contaminants in raw water
  • Identify and describe some of the important tests run on raw water
  • List the common major treatment steps for raw water treatment
  • Identify and describe the additional treatment steps required for boiler feedwater
  • Identify and describe the safety hazards and safe work practices associated with fresh/raw water systems

The following key questions are answered in this module:

How is water used in a mill?
Water is used in nearly every step of the pulping and papermaking processes. It's used to cook and bleach fibers; it's used to recover cooking chemicals; it's used to wash fibers; it's used to transport fibers in a slurry; it's used to suspend fibers and distribute them on a machine to create a sheet or board; and it's used for heating and cooling.

What is the molecular structure of water?
Water has a simple molecular structure with the chemical formula H2O. One molecule of water has two hydrogen atoms covalently bonded, at an angle to each other, to a single oxygen atom.

What are two primary sources of industrial water at mills?
Industrial water sources are broadly categorized as either surface water or groundwater.

What are two general classes of impurities found in water?
Suspended solids and dissolved solids.

What are some commonly run tests on water at mills?
Total suspended solids (TPS), turbidity, total dissolved solids (TDS), pH, hardness, biological oxygen demand (BOD), temperature, and temperature.

What are some common water treatment steps?
Screening, clarification, filtration, demineralization, and deaeration.

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

The first water treatment step is screening. If water comes from a surface source, it is put through a relatively large opening screen or mesh to remove trash, fish, and any other large items that would interfere with further processing. Next, the water is sent to a large clarifier with a long retention time. As the water flows slowly through the clarifier, the larger suspended solids are given a chance to settle out and separate by gravity. Clarifiers usually have a mechanism to slowly and automatically remove settled solids.

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.
