Removing air before the paper machine headbox promotes better machine runability, fewer sheet breaks, improved capacity, more stable pressure, reduced chemical use and greater cleanliness. The POMp Degasser provides a compact and efficient solution at the beginning of the white water handling process, requiring fewer and smaller silos and tanks downstream.
For a greenfield installation there is no other system as compact, or that can be installed without a basement - saving time and expenses in environmental permitting. For an existing mill, an older deckle system could be replaced or a single degasser can provide a significant improvement in system operation. A typical deckle system for air removal can run with 1-4% air entrainment, while the POMp typically achieves as little as 0.1%, using less than 5% of the space.
