The thin stock system is responsible for supplying clean, dilute stock to the headbox of a paper or board machine. The thin stock system uses white water to dilute the stock to the proper consistency for cleaning, screening, and delivery to the headbox. This module will list the objectives of a thin stock system and identify how each objective is satisfied.

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

  • Identify and describe safety hazards and safety guidelines for thin stock systems
  • List the objectives of a thin stock system and identify how each objective is satisfied
  • Explain the purpose of "cascaded" cleaning systems
  • Identify and describe key equipment
  • Identify and describe primary process flows
  • Describe the operation of centrifugal cleaners
  • Identify where chemical additives are typically added to thin stock
  • Describe how consistency is controlled in a thin stock system
  • List the objectives of thin stock screening
  • Describe operation of pulsation dampening equipment

The following key questions are answered in this module:

Why do thin stock cleaning and screening systems often use multiple stages?
The later stages are used to recover the fibers in the rejects from the first stage. This minimizes fiber losses and improves the overall efficiency of the system.

What is the difference between a forward cleaner and a reverse cleaner?
In both types, the denser components exit from the bottom and lighter components from the top. Forward cleaners remove small dense contaminants, so the fibers exit from the top. Reverse cleaners remove lightweight contaminants, so the fibers exit from the bottom.

Why are fan pumps usually double suction pumps instead of centrifugal pumps?
Fan pumps are typically double suction pumps with low-pulse impellers to minimize pressure pulsations in the stock going to the headbox, which can occur with regular centrifugal pumps.

What is the difference between cleaners and screens?
Cleaners remove small contaminants based on density differences with fibers, while screens remove larger contaminants based on size differences with fibers.

What is the purpose of the attenuator in a thin stock system?
Attenuators use air pads to remove any remaining pressure pulsations in the stock flow to the headbox, which is especially important for hydraulic headboxes.

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

The Thick Stock System or Stock Preparation System is responsible for delivering the proper amount of thick stock to the Thin Stock System. The Thin Stock System uses white water to dilute the stock to the proper consistency for cleaning, screening, and delivery to the headbox. The Thin Stock System can include one or more of these process steps. Arranged roughly in this order. Centrifugal cleaners to remove small dense contaminants from the stock. Deaerating equipment to remove air from the thin stock. Screens to remove contaminants that are larger than pulp fibers. And pulsation dampening equipment to remove any pressure pulsations in the stock flow to the headbox.

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.
