Pitch Control

Solutions in Pitch Control

Finntalc neutralizes many impurities – pitch, white pitch and “stickies” in pulp and paper production, coated broke, and chemical, mechanical or de-inked pulp.

Talc Against Impurities

Talc decreases the tackiness of stickies, prevents agglomeration of these compounds and keeps them in a harmless form. Talc reduces deposits in the chemical and mechanical pulp processes, as well as in paper and recycled paper processes – regardless of changes in the process temperature or pH. Talc prevents the forming of secondary stickies (dissolved and colloidal stickies). This results in clean process equipment, improved plant productivity, and paper quality (fewer spots, defects, holes).

Environmental Benefits

Talc cleans paper and pulp of impurities with no need for chemicals or chemical cleaning systems. This means that wastewater is cleaner and has a lower chemical oxygen demand (COD). Energy consumption is reduced, and the production of recycling paper is facilitated.
