  • Mono nov pumps cuts paper mill costs

    The mill was facing production losses as high as 5% because the existing pumps were fitted with flushing shaft seals. The flushing water was diluting the coating mixture and upsetting the viscosity of the clay (500cP to 2,000cP), resulting in a marked reduction in the quality of the finished product. The coating clay contains 55-75% solids, including kaolin, marble, carbonates and titanium oxide, ...
