Climate regulation in the pulp, paper and printing industry

Dehumidification and efficient air cleaning in production areas

Climate regulation in the pulp, paper and printing industry

High quality protection already during the creation of the paper

The quality and characteristics of paper are the flagship of any manufacturer. These factors guarantee high sales figures and permanently satisfied customers. The key to success is an optimal climate control in the production and storage facilities. Hence, Trotec offers industry-specific solutions also for this sector. High-quality industrial dehumidifiers protect the paper already during its production. Fine particulates are combated by use of professional air cleaners. And when it comes to controlling the air values, precisely operating climate data loggers will provide more information.

Pulp and paper made thereof are vulnerable to humidity. Both waste paper and shredded wood used for producing pulp literally extract the moisture from the ambient air and absorb it. This usually results in great financial losses since the humidity damages both the pulp and the finished paper. Therefore, maintaining stable climate values and, above all, a permanently low humidity level is essential for the production processes in pulp and paper mills, printing factories and facilities where paper rolls are stored. Trotec offers effective solutions in the fight against excessive humidity values and also has the suitable devices for air cleaning on offer which help to create a pleasant working atmosphere.

Effective against corrosion and mould

Damages to the pulp, the finished paper product, in printing factories or in storage facilities are mostly caused by a too high humidity level. Besides damaging the paper, which may tarnish, mould, become hard to process and loose its quality, too much humidity also affects the valuable machinery in the factories. Corrosion not only occurs on the electronic machine components but also in the building stock. Trotec offers the optimal solution for an effective protection against humidity: the powerful stationary desiccant dehumidifiers of the TTR series. They are durable and low-maintenance and, in particular, flexibly configurable – a reliable and extremely powerful dehumidification performance tailored to the different requirements of the industry.

Improved working climate thanks to clean air

The enormous amounts of paper and wood particles whirling through the air during shredding in the mills quickly collect in the lungs of the staff and can cause health problems – even wearing a respiratory mask does not guarantee a hundred percent protection. The commercial air cleaners of the TAC series from Trotec professionally clean the air of fine dust, fibres and particles hazardous to human health. This is where the variably combinable filter modules come into play, which operate with full force to provide clean air.

With a close eye on climate values

Paying regular attention to a low humidity level helps you to always be one step ahead in the paper and print production. In order to maintain the specified values at all times, Trotec has climate data logger of the DL series available for operators. Highly sensitive sensors capture the relative and absolute humidity and provide further climate data such as air temperature and dew point at a glance.

Make use of Trotec's best practice industrial services

Since every industrial undertaking has characteristic process flows, installations and facilities, every air treatment solution demands case-specific device configurations. All in all, the combined effects of air currents, humidity conditions and temperature fluctuations are often hard to calculate on a purely theoretical basis, e.g. in airlock areas or on conveying paths. The consequence: Unnecessary additional costs due to an overestimated demand or – even worse – solutions not working sufficiently in real life.

You can count on our experts

In order to precisely calculate the demand in the industry and to develop tailor-made concepts for climate conditioning experienced climate specialists are needed. Rely on our team of experts as well as the industrial services: We analyse the individual requirement situation with you present on site, determine the specific demand for devices and develop a tailor-made project solution right up to the exact positioning of the devices.

Before the planned stationary units are installed, our service team first works with mobile versions of the drying units as part of a trial run. These can be put up without any difficulty or the need for structural changes.

During this validation phase we document all relevant climate parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, dew point or flow rate for a final optimization of the requirement calculation.

Trotec is the only provider of this advantage:

Thanks to the unique option of non-binding trial operation you will invest solely in solutions which have verifiably proven their worth in everyday operation meeting your individual on-site requirements. The stationary units will not be ordered until you are fully satisfied with our concept. The only costs incurred consist of an inexpensive hiring flat rate for the time of test operation.

Just give us a call at +49 2452 962-777 – our industry consultants will be pleased to help you personally and provide information regarding our best practice industrial services. Or send a request indicating your personal requirements directly to our industry experts. We will answer promptly!

Upon request, we also produce customized desiccant dehumidifiers as special models

Upon request, we will readily produce tailor-made desiccant dehumidifiers as special models “made in Germany” perfectly geared to your needs, e.g.:

  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers with hygienic design
  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers for PWIS-free dry air
  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers with extremely low dew point

Makes use of the possibility of having special models with tailored components for your individual needs planned, designed and manufactured in close consultation with our specialists.

Application examples for the pulp, paper and printing industry

  • Cable repair

    In the industrial sector, cables are often exposed to the toughest environmental conditions. Consequently, defects occur causing an interruption of the necessary power supply – in many cases for a longer period of time. To avoid serious production losses or to perform maintenance work as quickly as possible, cable breaks and defects are located with the help of infrared thermography. Cables used...
