Pulp screens remove contaminants from pulp suspensions and are critical to the production of high-quality paper products. Screen performance is determined by two internal components: a cylinder with apertures that pass acceptable fibres and block oversize contaminants, and a rotor that clears the apertures of any blockages. An understanding of these mechanisms can be used in mill operations to increase screen capacity, reduce energy consumption, provide cleaner pulp, minimize fiber loss and ensure reliable screen operation.

The webinar will review the basics of screen operation and mill strategies to optimize screen performance. It is intended for mill engineers who might be new to screening as well for more experienced engineers who wish to update their knowledge of screening technology. Training materials will range from mill case studies to high-speed videos illustrating the fundamentals of fiber motion.
