Abstract [en]

The effect of pulp flow recirculation on energy efficiency and pulp properties development in low consistency refining of TMP has been studied. Trials were made with TwinFlo 58 refiners in two mills in Sweden. The refiners were operated at constant specific refining energy but different flow conditions. No effect of recirculation was seen on refining energy efficiency, pulp quality or fibre wall delamination/internal fibrillation. At high degree of recirculation though, a somewhat larger fibre length reduction was seen. This means that a large degree of recirculation can be used to attain a high specific energy in one stage low consistency refining, without significant negative effects on fibre properties. If a high specific energy input is desirable, it is more cost effective to install one large refiner with recirculation compared to several small without recirculation in series. When recirculation was increased by means of increased flow through the refiner, the outlet pressure dropped. The lower pressure drop over the refiner probably decreased the internal recirculation between rotor and stator, which could explain the observation that there was little effect on fibre development by recirculation. This means that at certain conditions the distribution in fibre treatment might not increase so much when the outer recirculation is increased, since the internal recirculation might be reduced simultaneously.
