Titanium coagulant successfully tested in pulp and paper industry water supply systems at OJSC Mondi Syktyvkar Pulp and Paper Mill Complex
SITTEC has successfully conducted the first part of titanium coagulant tests on Mondi Syktyvkar water treatment facilities in Syktyvkar.
October 2011 saw SITTEC Ltd. and Mondi Syktyvkar Pulp and Paper Mill Complex carry out joint tests of titanium coagulant in the production laboratory of Water treatment plant No.1 of Mondi SPPMC Water and Sewerage Utilities Management. The tests were aimed at the introduction of titanium coagulant to the scheme of water treatment for the needs of Mondi SPPMS principal plants.
The tests proved considerable technical and economic advantages of titanium coagulant application in the treatment of process water in the water supply systems of the production facilities of the enterprise.
An important peculiarity of the tests is that according to Mondi SPPMS Technical requirements TT 23-2010 “Filtered water” standards for coagulants applied in this production as well as for the quality of purified water are stricter than those for drinking water supply. The tests were conducted during the so-called autumn freshet, when the quality of raw water significantly decreases with water parameters sharply changing. Still the quality of water purified with titanium coagulant met the above mentioned requirements.
Following the test results the parties began to prepare for titanium coagulant industrial pilot-scale tests at OJSC Mondi SPPMS.
Mondi SPPMS is one of the largest wood processing enterprises in Russia producing market cellulose, paper, as well as thermal and electric energy. The enterprise is part of “Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper”, a branch of Mondi Group. Mondi Group is the world’s leading producer of paper and packaging materials with enterprises engaging 29 thousand workers in 31 countries.
SITTEC Ltd., which is part of IFD Kapital Group, is realizing the project of building up titanium coagulant production on the basis of Yarega oil and titanium resource (the Ukhta Region, the Komi Republic, the Russian Federation). Titanium coagulant is an innovative highly effective chemical for drinking water production, and industrial and municipal waste water treatment. The superior removal capacity of titanium coagulant is accounted for by the high adsorption capacity of titanium containing phases in the product, which has significant technical and economic advantages over other coagulants.
