Lime Kiln Fundamentals

This course covers the purpose of the lime kiln and the role of lime (CaO) in the chemical recovery process at a kraft pulp mill. Then it describes the components and sections of a rotary lime kiln, and the chemical reaction that takes place inside the kiln. Finally, it lists some common problems experienced in lime kilns.

Black Liquor Evaporators—Introduction

The Black Liquor Evaporators – Introduction course begins with an overview of the kraft chemical pulping process and the role evaporators play in the chemical recovery process. It then details the flows of steam, vapor, and black liquor in a typical multiple effect evaporator setup, and concludes with a discussion on “steam economy.”

Wet End Chemistry Basics

This course discusses the fundamentals of colloidal chemistry for paper machine stock and water systems. It describes the surface charge interactions that take place and the role of pH. It also discusses how some commonly used chemicals affect wet end chemistry, machine operations, and characteristics of the sheet produced on the paper machine.

Box Plant Basics—Box Plant Equipment Basics

This course introduces some common box plant equipment and processes, and discusses equipment layout, material flows, and storage considerations in box plants.

Box Plant Basics—Raw Materials

This course describes wood fiber sources, chemical pulping and papermaking processes, and various glues, inks, and coatings used in the production of corrugated board and corrugated boxes.

Box Plant Basics—Corrugating Adhesives

This module begins with the history of corrugating adhesives, and then it describes the purpose or function of the ingredients in modern, starch-based corrugating adhesives, including cooked and uncooked starch, caustic, borax, and water. It details the importance of adhesive viscosity.
