SCA DIP Tissue Paper Mill

flootech sca dip tissue paper mill reference

Flootech was the selected supplier for the state-of-the-art process water and wastewater treatment concept for the new SCA DIP Tissue Paper Mill in Mexico. Water consumption at this modern mill is remarkably low and Flootech’s equipment is widely used in different locations of the mill to minimize the raw material and water consumption.

Raw material usage at the mill is maximized by efficient fiber recovery, which is performed by FlooDaf® Microflotation (SaveAll DAF). Improved process water recycling is enabled by cleaning the dirty process water with the FlooDaf® Microflotation and recycle the clarified water back to the DIP plant. Despite of the low water consumption concept there is some  wastewater discharge from the mill. This wastewater is treated with advanced wastewater treatment process based on the combination of MBBR (moving bed biofilm reactor) and Microflotation.

The special detail in the treatment plant design is the fact that almost half of the treated wastewater will be recycled back to the production process providing the lowest water consumption among DIP Tissue mills.

flootech process water recycling solution Today’s requirements for decreased water consumption call for improved water management at mills. Flootech’s solutions born of significant pulp and paper industry experience respond solidly to that challenge.
flootech wastewater treatment solution Today, industrial plants are taking full responsibility for the way their process waters affect production and the environment. Fresh water taken from nature is cleaned, utilized and recycled carefully within the processes and, when returned to nature, that water must meet stringent standards. These targets can be achieved using FlooBed-based biological treatment solutions.
flootech biological treatment solution Biological treatment removes dissolved organic hydrocarbons from water. Flootech’s sophisticated, compact Floobed® Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) uses special, freely moving biofilm carriers, which suit high capacity operations, are particularly tolerant of variations in feed flow rate and quality, and give consistently high quality results.

flootech floodaf technology Dissolved Air Flotation (also known as microflotation) is a well-known method of particle separation. Microbubbles are created by dissolving air into water under pressure. When the air-saturated pressurized water is released, microbubbles are formed. Chemical, physical and electrical forces cause suspended solids and colloids to attach to one another and to air bubbles. These particle flocs then float to the water’s surface and are scraped off. Coagulation and / or flocculation chemicals are used to enhance the process.
