Pulp & Paper

Centrifugal Compressors for the Pulp & Paper Industry

Industry Requirements

Air compressors are essential in the pulp and paper industry to ensure product quality and strength.

Air compressors are required for multiple steps in the manufacturing process, from the cutting and pressing process to the roller adjustments, feeding paper presses, agitating solutions, and spraying protective coatings. Given its significant role in the industry, it is necessary to ensure all equipment used in production is fast and reliable so that the plant can operate at maximum efficiency. In order to produce the highest quality paper product possible, the industry relies on oil-free air compressors to eliminate potential contamination problems.  

Industry Solution

Centrifugal compressors offer ISO 8573-1 Class 0 oil-free air, at the highest efficiency with the lowest maintenance requirements and cost of ownership.

FS-Elliott centrifugal air compressors like the Polaris line allow low maintenance and maximum uptime to ensure the pulp and paper mills are constantly in production, allowing the factory to run at its highest efficiency. In fact, all FS-Elliot centrifugal compressors are ideal for pulp and paper manufacturing because they are certified to deliver ISO 8573-1 Class 0 oil-free compressed air, meaning they deliver the cleanest air to run the plant.
