Quality Assessment of Pulp for the Production of Fluff Pulp

With an increased population, sanitary products are used to a greater extent. At RISE, producers for fluff pulp can optimize and develop the process and product, both for the sake of the environment and the user, and performing a quality assessment of the original pulp can be part of that work.

Purpose

At RISE, we have the expertise and resources to support manufacturers of fluff pulp in optimizing and developing their processes and products for both environmental sustainability and user-friendliness. A crucial part of this work is conducting a thorough quality assessment of the original pulp used as raw material in the manufacturing process. By analyzing properties such as fiber quality, purity, and chemical composition, we can identify any shortcomings or areas for improvement. This enables manufacturers to adjust their processes to achieve the desired product quality and efficiency while reducing their environmental impact and increasing customer satisfaction.

RISE offers comprehensive analysis and quality assessment services for manufacturers of fluff pulp, including a range of important analyses to assess the quality of the raw material and the end product. An important aspect is the analysis of fiber dimensions, where we carefully measure and evaluate properties that affect the performance and final quality of the pulp.

When it comes to fiber dimensions, we focus on several key factors that directly impact the properties and usability of fluff pulp. For example, coarse fibers tend to generate high volume and bulk in the final product, which can be advantageous for products requiring higher volume but lower density, such as certain types of hygiene products. On the other hand, long fibers contribute to providing a stronger network structure in the pulp, which is important for products that need to maintain shape and structure during use. Additionally, a low proportion of fines and a high proportion of fibers are advantageous properties for achieving high-quality fluff pulp, which is required to manufacture sanitary products with high absorption capacity and comfort.

By carefully analyzing and evaluating these fiber dimensions, we can provide our customers with valuable insights and recommendations to optimize their fluff pulp production. By tailoring processes to maximize the desired properties of the raw material, manufacturers can achieve a more consistent and high-quality end product while streamlining their production and reducing waste.
