This investment is exclusively to enable the drying of pulp, with the purchase of a dewaterer
and dryer for Ripasa unit 1, located in Limeira.

, the Witte pre-dryer removes the outer layer of moisture that causes the particles to stick together and/or to the drying section, permitting smooth movement from the Teflon-coated pre-dryer deck into the vibrating fluid bed drying section.
"Previously, half of our output went through the dryer and half went to the dewaterer
. With the new line, all the pulp goes to the dryer, eliminating the need for the dewaterer
They also supply the Hydro-Press dewaterer
and complete details of this unit can be obtained from the company at Charterland House, 2251 Coventry Road, Sheldon, Birmingham B26, tel: 021-742 0622.
