HOW 100% RECYCLED PAPER IS MADE: STEP 3

06.13.2017

Step Three in the process of how our 100% recycled paperboard is manufactured:

High Density Cleaners
The recycled paper pulp is pumped through a series of high density cleaners. These separators remove solids including glass, staples and sand. The separators subject the recycled paper stock to an aggressive centrifugal action which causes the undesirable particles to flow out and down towards a bottom chamber where they collect and are purged. The cleaned stock flows forward to the primary pressure screens while the contaminants are dewatered and further recycled.
