In 2018, nearly 1.9 billion people purchased goods online. By 2021, that number is expected to reach 2.14 billion. While there are plenty of in-store shoppers, the meteoric increase in online shopping over the years has led to the expectations around shopping changing — even for retailers with physical locations.

Whether customers are buying from online sources like Amazon or are ordering online from brick-and-mortar retailers, every consumer expects their products to arrive quickly — and in good condition. Have you considered the kind of packaging you're using to ship your products? It's an important decision because it could be the difference between a one-time customer and a lifetime customer.

More than 2,000 years after the invention of paper in China, the country’s scientists are claiming another breakthrough that replaces its key ingredient with the dirty waste from coal-fired power plants.

Screening equipment is the important operational system for pulp processing. After separation of the black liquor from the fiber in the washing section the pulp contains coarser fibers, foreign matter and dirt as like pieces of bark, digester brick, cement etc. Hence this unwanted and troublesome matter should be removed to produce first quality pulp. Pulp screening equipment is applied in this regards.

There are two categories screens are used in pulp mills; coarse screens and fine screens. These screening equipment works basis on vibrating, shaking, gravity centrifugal and centripetal forces.

The major types of coarse screen are two types sliver screens and knotters. The examples of sliver screens such as bull screen, rotary scraper, rotary oscillating and the knotters such as worm knotter, Johnson knotter screen, diaphragm screen etc.

Paper machine clothing makers tell us that making high quality paper  and controlling production costs begins by selecting the right fabric.

Productivity, efficiency, improved paper properties, better fiber retention and drainage, reliable and predictable life expectancy are just some of the items on a papermaker’s punch- list for today’s paper machine clothing (PMC) companies.

In the process of paper making, most of the energy saving is related to improving the energy efficiency of the drying process and the utilization of the waste heat. In general, pulp and paper energy costs accounted for about 10% to 35% of the cost of production; consumption of vacuum consumption accounted for 15% of paper electric power consumption to 18%, most of the vacuum energy is supplied to the vacuum roller, suction tank and vacuum suction tank; drying is the highest part of energy consumption in the production of paper. The key factor to reduce the energy consumption is to increase the dry degree of paper after press.

Traditional forming fabric structures involve a series of design compromises in which fabric life, fabric stability, sheet formation, fiber retention, and fabric drive-load are traded off, one for another, to achieve a specific end result. This article describes a new approach by Cristini Design Engineers, in which all these properties can be maximized without coincidental negative trade-offs.

Papermaking is a highly sophisticated process involving several processing steps to turn wood into paper products. In addition to the actual papermaking process, there are also supporting areas such as waste water treatment, recovery boiler operation, steam production, and cooling towers that benefit from on-line analytical measurements.
