Continuous Cooking Introduction

In a continuous digester, wood chips are surrounded by alkaline liquor and “cooked” at high temperature for a couple of hours. This cooking process digests, or breaks down, the lignin, or glue, which holds the cellulose fibers together. This course provides an overview of a continuous digester cooking system.

Wet End Chemistry – Functional Papermaking Additives

Functional additives are added to papermaking furnishes to affect properties of the sheet. This module describes some of the more common chemicals that are used as functional additives, including dry strength additives, wet strength additives, mineral fillers, internal sizing agents, dyes, and pigments.
