Several characteristics of stock and water flows to and around a tissue machine are often monitored and/or controlled for multiple reasons. This module will cover pH, consistency, temperature, freeness, and charge demand.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Explain why stock and white water flows to and around tissue machines are often monitored for pH, consistency, temperature, fiber size distribution, freeness, and charge demand
  • Explain what these process tests measure
  • Define first pass retention and identify problems that can result from low retention values
  • Explain how the results of these tests can be used to optimize or ensure machine runnability or sheet quality
  • List safety hazards and safety guidelines associated with stock and white water systems

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is consistency?
Consistency is the weight percentage of dry fiber in a mixture of fiber and water.

Why is temperature important?
Water viscosity decreases as temperature increases, which makes the water drain from the sheet more easily. Higher temperatures also improve refining results and can affect chemical additive efficiencies and biological growth.

What is freeness?
Freeness measures the drainage rate of water from a dilute pulp suspension. The faster the water drains, the higher the freeness.

Why is charge demand important?
Anionic trash or cationic demand is important to measure because undesirable dissolved materials in the white water reduce the effectiveness of additives and can cause runability problems.

Why is pH control important?
pH affects chemical additive efficiency and retention, refining, retention, drainage, and formation.

Sample Video Transcript

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

Several characteristics of stock and water flows to and around a tissue machine are often monitored and are controlled for multiple reasons, including: to ensure a consistent flow of stock to the tissue machine, to optimize runability of the machine and prevent process upsets including sheet breaks, to optimize the efficiency of chemical additives and the results of various processes including refining, to produce a consistent high quality tissue sheet with the desired sheet characteristics. The following characteristics are often monitored: pH, consistency, temperature, fiber size distribution, freeness, and charge demand.

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

I would like to have several employees take multiple courses. How can I set that up?

We're in the process of making bulk course and multiple user purchases easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and contact us with details on who you'd like to assign courses to. We can set up each user's training plan and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

Can I get a free full-length preview of a course to see what this course covers?

While we do our best to offer details on course contents, we don't normally offer full-length previews. But please contact us with more details for a better understanding of what your organizaton needs and how we can help.

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 each eLearning course.

How do I log in to take a course that I have already paid for?

You'll receive an email with login details moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course. Just click the login link and enter the user name and password provided.

Do you have courses in different languages?

Yes. While all of our courses are originally produced in English, we develop many courses in a growing number of languages, including Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tamil, and Thai. Available languages are normally displayed in the Course Details section on each course page.
