Abstract [en]

Two refiner bleaching trials on TMP and SGW rejects using magnesium hydroxide and hydrogen peroxide were conducted in a reject refiner. Clear filtrate from a disc filter was used as dilution water during the first trial (normal mill operation) and fresh water was used during the second trial. Refiner bleached pulp had approximately nine %ISO higher brightness than reference pulps in both trials using a peroxide charge of 25 kg/t pulp. The brightness gain increased to 12 %ISO after high consistency storage at 755 degrees C for 30 minutes. The bleached pulp from the first trial had 10% lower tensile index compared to reference at similar refining energy. The extractives content on the surfaces of the bleached fibres (surface coverage measured by ESCA) was 20% higher compared to the unbleached reference pulp when clear filtrate was used as dilution water. Within this surface extractives content increase, the increase of triglycerides and steryl esters was largest, almost doubling in value. Acetone extraction of the pulps led to higher apparent sheet strength. The increase was equal for both the reference and the bleached samples but the bleached pulp still had inferior strength properties compared to the reference pulp. When a second trial was carried out with fresh water as dilution, much less difference in the strength properties of bleached and unbleached pulp was observed.

It is suggested that addition of alkali to the refiner caused extractives in the clear filtrate to destabilise and re-deposit onto fibre surfaces. The fact that removal of extractives with acetone did not bring the strength of bleached pulp up to the level of the reference pulp suggests that extractives may have influenced the fibre development process of the bleached pulp fibres in the refiner.
