Different stock consistencies, fast filling

Application

The fibre suspension created in the pulper is first drawn off into a dump chest. There it is temporarily stored for the further stages of the stock preparation process. Typical process challenges in the dump chest are fast filling from above and high stock densities. A slow-running lateral agitator ensures a homogeneous, pumpable consistency of the fibres in suspension. Level measurement in the dump chest determines when it is filled to capacity and ready for emptying and the next process step. The measurement is carried out hydrostatically via a side-mounted pressure transmitter with a ball valve fitting. This allows removal for maintenance or cleaning purposes, even when the dump chest is full.
