Oxygen delignification processes are located between the pulp mill and the traditional bleach plant. The goal of oxygen delignification is to reduce the lignin content of unbleached pulp before using more expensive bleaching chemicals. Even though it has been known to be an effective bleaching chemical for many years, several obstacles prevented commercialization until 1970. The obstacles and their solutions will be discussed in this course along with oxygen delignification processes, equipment, and safety.

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

  • Define the goal of oxygen delignification
  • Describe the advantages and disadvantages of oxygen delignification
  • Describe the basics of oxygen delignification chemistry
  • Define selectivity and identify methods to impact selectivity
  • Identify and describe the variables affecting oxygen delignification
  • State the impact of poor washing
  • Describe the safety hazards and safety guidelines associated with oxygen
  • Identify and describe the processes and equipment used in oxygen delignification

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is the purpose of oxygen delignification?
Oxygen delignification is used to reduce the environmental impact of bleaching pulp by lowering the kappa number before conventional bleaching chemicals are used

Is oxygen a selective chemical?
No, oxygen is not a selective bleaching chemical so it is used early in the process when the lignin content is high

Why is oxidized white liquor used for oxygen delignification?
Oxygen delignification requires an alkaline pH. Oxidized white liquor is used instead of typical alkaline chemicals like sodium hydroxide to maintain the sodium/sulfur balance in the recovery system

What consistency pulp is required for oxygen delignification?
Oxygen delignification can be performed on medium or high consistency pulp, but most processes use medium consistency pulp

What is the benefit of a two stage oxygen delignification process
A two stage oxygen delignification process can improve delignification from 50% -70% by separating the reaction phases and optimizing conditions for each phase

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

Oxygen was known to be an effective bleaching chemical for many years, but several obstacles prevented commercialization until 1970. The obstacles and their solutions will be discussed in this module. Oxygen delignification processes are located between the pulp mill and the traditional bleach plant. The goal of oxygen delignification is to reduce the lignent content of unbleached pulp before using more expensive bleaching chemicals. Oxygen can reduce the Kappa number more effectively than extending the pulping process. One advantage of oxygen delignification is that the effluent, unlike that from a conventional bleach plant, is compatible with craft pulping chemical recovery processes. Oxygen delignification is an important process contributing to elemental and total chlorine-free bleaching while still economically achieving pulp brightness targets and reducing the environmental impact.

Customer Q&A

Ask a Question

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.
