A new online video case study by Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group demonstrates “precise and accurate” chemical metering for a UK paper manufacturer.
The video features St Cuthbert’s Mill, a master papermaker with a heritage that can be traced back to the 1700s. Based near Wells in Somerset, the company specializes in the manufacture of high-quality artists’ papers.
The video explores the strengths of WMFTG’s Qdos pump technology for metering substances such as pigment and starch. An interview with Paul Tremlett, the company’s shift manager explains the contribution Qdos makes to reliable production and minimum downtime. “For us to have consistency and a quality product going out the door, we need to have trust in what we use. We need quality, and they (WMFTG) provide it,” he says. He goes on to explain that with approximately 80 tons of paper produced every month, using a continental shift pattern across 24/7 operations, reliability of technology is vital to operations.
Under two minutes in length, the video will be of particular interest to production engineers working in the field of paper and board manufacturing – as well as those in other industries where accurate and repeatable chemical dosing is vital.
