Brownstock Washing Workshop

Lead Instructor: 

Robert (Bobby) Wilson

Senior Research Chemist, AMS (Applied Material Solutions)

The fundamental applications of displacement, extraction, and dilution washing will be investigated. Water use and reuse will be topically discussed. Vacuum drum washers will be used as the basis for this course because they present the opportunity to review all three types of washing. 

Efforts will be made to explain how the operating principles associated with vacuum drum washers may be successfully applied to more modern washer and washing devices. Washing optimization, economics, and troubleshooting techniques will be discussed. 

Participants will be exposed to standard brownstock washing calculations designed to characterize washer performance and to document improvement.
