Improving the efficiency of hydrogen peroxide bleaching of chemimechanical pulp by continuous replenishment of bleaching chemicals, TAPPI JOURNAL June 2017


 
ABSTRACT: Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is commonly used to bleach chemimechanical pulp. A decrease in the concentrations of the bleaching reagents throughout the bleaching process results in low bleaching efficiencies. In this study, chemical solutions were continuously added into the pulp slurry during the bleaching process to maintain constant concentrations of H2O2 and total alkali in the bleaching system to improve bleaching efficiency. The results showed that when the H2O2 and total alkali concentrations were maintained at 4.5 g/L and 0.79 g/L, respectively, for 50 min, the bleaching efficiency reached 16.79 (Δ% ISO brightness/Δ% H2O2 consumed [on ovendry pulp]), which was significantly higher than 7.38 obtained by using the high-consistency bleaching method. The results confirmed that continuous replenishment of chemical solutions into the bleaching system to maintain the constant chemical con-centrations improved the efficiency of H2O2 bleaching of the chemimechanical pulp.

Application: Continuous replenishment of H2O2 during chemimechanical pulp bleaching improves bleaching efficiency and reduces production costs.
