Application

The targeted addition of chemicals and auxiliary substances influences the properties and quality of the paper. Common additives are hydrogen peroxide as well as alkalis, acids and fillers. These chemicals and additives are sometimes aggressive, produce vapours and are at temperatures of up to 95 °C. This means they are often stored in stainless steel or glass fibre reinforced plastic containers. Level and pressure measurements are essential for the safe filling and emptying of the storage tanks and for dry run protection of pumps.
