Mechanical Pulping, 2nd Edition
Book editor: Bruno Lönnberg, D.Sc. (Tech.), Professor emeritus, Åbo Akademi University
Volume 5 of the Papermaking Science and Technology Series, published by the Finnish Paper Engineers’ Association. The purpose of a mechanical pulping process is to separate the fibres from the wood matrix, hopefully in a form suitable for a specific papermaking process. This is of course a demanding task, and for an outsider it might sound like magic that solid wood at all can be converted into useful fibres just by treating it mechanically. This book covers the basics and fundamentals of mechanical pulping including all the processes related to mechanical pulping.
The Papermaking Science and Technology series is also an excellent textbook resource for universities and colleges. This series is ideal to train new employees at your company or as a reference guide for your experienced workforce.
