The efficacy of sodium metaborate against all Candida species was highly significant (P value 0.
APPLICATION: With no detrimental effects observed for maple, spruce, and birch pulps, autocausticizing with sodium metaborate added in the white liquor appears to be an easy way for a causticizing-limited mill to increase its capacity without new equipment.
Research has brought us a better understanding of the efficiency of autocausticizing reactions, proving that the amount of sodium metaborate needed to produce sodium hydroxide is only half that previously perceived to be necessary.
These researchers carried out analyses on the properties of birch, maple, and spruce pulps to determine how conventional kraft pulping compares with kraft pulping with sodium metaborate added.
The sodium borohydride is introduced to a proprietary catalyst bed producing hydrogen at 100 percent relative humidity and a byproduct sodium metaborate, which is essentially borax.
Sodium metaborate levels were measured in the soup, and traces were found in the leftover diluted soup but not in the undiluted soup.
